Nancy Hensel, C.V.T.

Nancy started working at Brandywine Valley Veterinary Hospital in high school as a veterinary assistant in 1975. Upon graduating from Coatesville high school, she attended Harcum College in Rosemont, PA., in their Veterinary Technology program. As a certified Veterinary Technician she works in all aspects of the practice assisting the doctors in surgery and treating pets during office visits. Because of her excellent veterinary education and years of experience, she has a wealth of small animal knowledge and is a wonderful resource for clients and fellow team members. Regarding working at BVVH, Nancy comments: “I enjoy meeting our clients and their pets. Being a veterinary technician is a challenging and rewarding career.”

In January 2016 co-workers, family and friends were delighted to help her celebrate her 40th anniversary of working at BVVH! She and Dr. Moss have been a wonderful surgical team for all those years, and we are continually impressed with her excellent skills as a surgery technician and ability with anesthesia.  She is locally famous for her tact and diplomacy in dealing with cats of all kinds.

Nancy has been married since 1980, and is the proud mother of three children, Steven, Amanda, and Matthew, and  “Grams” to Dylan and Rachel. Dylan says his Grandma ” She knows everything and loves everyone”. 

Nancy shares her home with a pair of Chihuahuas, Nacho & Margarita, an Amazon parrot Nikki, a trio of cats, and two dwarf bunnies, Rummy & Randall Bing.

Her mini barnyard corrals a miniature horse and donkey.

The” Queen of Cruises”, Nancy’s vacations always include family and a big boat.
