Angela Culp’s article, “Compassionate Client Medical Leadership and the Role of the Licensed Veterinary Technician,” serves as a cornerstone in defining the critical leadership roles that licensed veterinary technicians (LVTs) play in modern veterinary settings.

Culp champions compassionate medical leadership, stressing the importance of emotional intelligence, adept self-management, and robust relationship skills for LVTs. Her advocacy extends beyond just skill sets; she underscores the necessity for LVTs to actively engage with clients and colleagues alike, fostering an environment where everyone feels valued and integral to the caregiving process. This approach, Culp argues, is pivotal for achieving positive treatment outcomes and nurturing enduring client relationships.

Culp is completing her first academic year with Blinn College after previously serving as an instructor at Weatherford College. Prior to working as an instructor, she worked as an LVT in Carrollton, Texas. Culp holds an Associate of Science from Cedar Valley College and her Bachelor of Applied Science from Tarleton State University. As a Blinn instructor, Culp prepares students for high-demand positions as fully credentialed LVTs.

Blinn stands out as the only community college in the state that has an agreement to complete laboratories and clinicals at Texas A&M University’s Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. This unique partnership equips students with unparalleled hands-on training in every aspect of this wide-ranging field.

Blinn graduates are prepared for careers in animal shelters, educational institutions, government agencies, laboratory facilities, research, veterinary clinics, and zoological facilities. Due to Blinn’s reputation for excellence and a statewide shortage of veterinary technicians, program graduates often accept jobs prior to graduation and many choose from multiple opportunities.
