He moved on to manage the ER and ICU departments at another referral facility in Los Angeles. After winning the IVECCS Best Case Report Award in 2009 and obtaining his VTS in emergency and critical care in 2010, David began speaking at national conferences. He has since spoke at some of the largest conferences on the country. David loves to teach and regularly teaches CE class on the Veterinary Support Personnel network. He has also authored articles for Vet Tech and NAVTA magazine and recently published 3 book chapters in an upcoming book on emergency and critical care nursing.
