Michael Giuliano started in the veterinary field in 2007 working in the Intermediate Care Ward at VCA Veterinary Referral Associates, then familiarly referred to as “the barn”. He moved to the surgery department where he remained until 2010,when he decided to investigate the outside world and left the hospital for about a year. However, like many before him, he missed the challenge inherent in veterinary medicine and returned to the ICW before transferring to Radiation Oncology, where he seems to have discovered his niche.
Mike attended Frederick Community College for two years, where he studied Fine Arts, with a focus on elements of earth based spirituality. Being a ‘free thinker’, Mike then changed his field of study to Para Medicine (Pre-Hospital Medicine) at Shepherd University. He keeps current with his registration in CPR/First Aid and has been certified as an Emergency Medical Technician B. He also practices Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Basic Trauma Life Support, International Trauma Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support. He is a Fire Fighter I and has taken the Emergency Vehicle Operators Course and courses in Hazmat, Rope Rescue and Swift Water Rescue.
On his days off, Mike has worked as a professional piercer and is currently a Certified White Water Rafting Guide. His passions are boating, fishing, shooting, the riddle of steel, hiking and animals (not necessarily in that order). He enjoys almost anything involving the great outdoors…even barbecuing ! Mike lives in the “Wild and Wonderful” state of West Virginia (Best Virginia) with his two dogs, Azalea Laverne and Petunia Shirley. Needless to say, as you must have gathered by now, Mike is a man of many interests and talents.
