We are very proud to announce that our own Tracey Warren, CVT is the recipient of the MVTA Veterinary Technician of the Year award. This is an annual award given out by the Massachusetts Veterinary Technician Association. To be eligible a technician must be nominated for the award by a peer. The committee considers all applications and votes on the most deserving. It goes without saying that being nominated is an honor in itself.

Tracey has been a member of the team at IVG since 2000. She is the Technician Supervisor for Neurology and Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, as well as the Technician Internship Coordinator for IVG Hospitals. Despite this heavy work load, she can regularly be seen volunteering at our many community events! We love Tracey and we couldn’t be prouder of her accomplishments!

Tracey’s nomination letter is below.

Nomination Letter:

Tracey graduated from Mount Ida College in 2000. Since that time, in addition to her duties as a veterinary technician at IVG, she volunteers her time and expertise more than any other technician I know to animal related causes.

She is the Volunteer Clinic Coordinator at MSPCA Nevins Farm where she organizes and runs ongoing spay/neuter clinics and vaccination clinics. She also volunteers in multiple community and educational events in conjunction with Nevins and the IVG hospitals. Tracey volunteered in Project Samana in 2010 and is a SMART volunteer.

Tracey has had 2 articles published in the Veterinary Technician Journal, has been a finalist in the ACVIM Technician Case Reports, has been a guest speaker at Mount Ida (prior to becoming an Adjunct Instructor), and has lectured at the IVG Symposium. She is the Internship Coordinator for IVG and oversees up to 20 students a year. Tracey also attends multiple veterinary conferences each year and has just recently joined the New England Pet Hospice.

Tracey is passionate about her profession and I believe worthy of the MVTA Technician of the Year Award.


“We are so very proud of Tracey and thank her for the contributions she makes to our hospital, our patients and our practice every day. We are so lucky to work with Tracey and all of the awesome veterinary technicians at IVG. Thank you for making our patients lives better. We are honored to work with all of you.” said Luanne Barry, Hospital Services Manager at Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital; manager for the Call Center, Surgery, Neurology, Radiology and Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation departments.
