Hamilton started his career many moons ago as a kennel technician in a veterinary hospital in New Jersey as a change in career from the business world. Veterinary passion is what beats his heart & builds his soul. His history extends from the kennel all the way to the reception area. Through this history he has learned how to achieve team and personal success by working all positions of an Animal Hospital. As a Kennel Supervisor he began laying his foundation by learning the highest quality of pet care for boarding patients. Moving into the Head Technician position allowed him to further grow his medical knowledge and start a wonderful management journey. Once introduced to the Receptionist position he really grew the ultimate love for client care & services. This dart hit the bull’s eye of the importance of clients and their value for financial success. So, through this history, growing and organizing a veterinary business has become his daily goal.
He finds his greatest motivation in coaching others to perform above and beyond expectations.
Hamilton is distinguished by his passion for business, his focus on collaborative team building, and his commitment to meeting customer and veterinary practice growth demands. His contagious enthusiasm instills him and his team members with extraordinary energy and dedication in an environment where creativity and innovation are not usually encouraged. Hamilton does not just set out ambitious goals … he motivates people to deliver.
A dynamic leader, Hamilton has started a couple Practice Managers Associations, one in North Texas and the other in South Carolina. Through his direct efforts South Carolina Association of Veterinarians started a membership group specific to veterinary practice managers in 2012. He also has been a speaker at various veterinary conferences in Texas, South Carolina, and North Carolina.
On a personal note, Hamilton was born in Colombia, South America. After a little traveling he made it to the New Jersey/New York Metropolitan area where he attended high school and there after attended college in the state of Pennsylvania.

He has stated that the most important thing to him in this world is his main squeeze, Kristina, along with their 2 very beautiful young ladies (Danyella & Makayla). He would be in the doghouse if he forgets to mention his amigos as well as a tiny Douglas P Sherman, a few retired racing Greyhounds and Irma (Rescued Parrot). They are what remind him daily what it is to have life, love and adventure!

After going through life with a very deep passion and admiration for ALL animals, he has finally fallen into his dream career position! Serving as the Regional Practice Manager for Allied Veterinary Specialists.
