The VVTA (formerly the VAVT) was incorporated on February 28, 2005. We are a 501 c6 non-profit organization. Our main goal is to provide exceptional continuing education for our members and be an integral part of the Vermont veterinary community. We provide community support via job fairs, spay neuter clinics, public events and disaster relief. Our organization consists of a mighty fiery few but we have been known to move mountains.


Deb Glottmann, BS, CVT – VVTA President

Deb has been President of the VVTA since 2006. She was vice president in 2005. She graduated in 1992 from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with a Bachelor of Science in Pre Veterinary Medicine & Animal Sciences. She has been a veterinary technician since 1987. She started out in a large animal mostly equine practice in Connecticut and since then has become a small animal technician, practice owner & manager, veterinary pharmaceutical representative, and emergency critical care nurse. She enjoys emergency critical care and practice problem solving the best.  She lives in Montpelier with her two rescue Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, two fantastic felines, a horse, 4 Bettas and chickens. She works hard, plays hard, and enjoys swimming and animal rescue projects. She usually has a foster Cavalier that is at some stage of getting a lube, oil and filter! She loves seeing the transformation from broken or abused to happy, loving and healthy!

Martha Rose –  VVTA Vice President

Martha has been a vet tech for many years, starting her career in 1975. She went to college and worked in veterinary hospitals in California, Nevada, Arizona and Texas. Her last full time position as a veterinary technician was managing an equine hospital in the heart of Quarter Horse country in Texas. After that, she moved with her husband, dogs and horses to North Carolina where she started working for The Butler Company. After 18 months she accepted a position as the north east territory manager in Vermont and New Hampshire. That was in 1990. She still covers Vermont and New Hampshire for Butler Schein Animal Health and probably will until she dies. Martha and her husband enjoy their 3 horses, 2 cats and 9 hounds. They both spend a lot of time outdoors, skiing, snowshoeing, gardening and running with their hounds.
