Mo Rugh-CapRock Star this month!

My name is Mo and I am from Odessa, Texas. I moved to Bryan/College Station in 2010 to pursue my B.S. in Animal Science. I began working full-time as a veterinary technician at the TAMU VMTH Small Animal ER in 2014 and decided that I really enjoyed Emergency Medicine and would like to transition to a career in a human ER.

I began my career at CapRock Emergency at the front desk in October 2015. After about 7 months, I worked my way up to the ER Tech/Lab Manager position and I love it! I plan on eventually becoming either a PA or a NP but am in no hurry to figure out which because CapRock is a wonderful place to work. After a good day of helping out at CapRock, I go home to my wonderful husband, Michael, and my five goofy pets. I love reading, hiking, board games, and sci-fi movies.
