James Reid

James joined DoveLewis as a CVT in ​2009. James' favorite aspect of working at DoveLewis is the variety of cases and patients that come through our doors. A few of ​James' memorable cases include an ill beaver in the middle of the night, as well as several hawks that were brought in one afternoon by separate good Samaritans because of the heat wave, and countless other success stories. 

Outside of work, James enjoys fishing and music.
