Biomed Breaks the Mold by Working for Veterinary Practice

Rick TrexlerThe patients at the healthcare facilities where Rick Trexler, CBET, works tend to be rather furry, are prone to pacing, and have been known to bark or purr on occasion.

Trexler, you might say, is a rare breed: He’s a healthcare technology management (HTM) professional who works for a veterinary practice.

“Less a couple of ‘sabbaticals,’ I’ve been working in veterinary medicine since 1985, my senior year of high school. I am a registered veterinary technician, which is the equivalent of a registered nurse on the human medical side,” said Trexler, who is the equipment and facilities manager at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Kansas City, MO. “The bulk of my career has been in canine and feline medicine, but I have also worked in the aviculture department of Sea World with penguins, alcids, waterfowl, and parrots; with other wildlife; and for a short time in large animal medicine.”
