Our Staff  - Newbury Animal Hospital - Newbury, MA

 Meet the caring team of Newbury Animal Hospital!


Tammy is our vet tech - Newbury Animal Hospital - Newbury, MA


My name is Tammy and I have been a senior technician here at Newbury Animal Hospital for about 20 years.  I have actually been in the veterinary field for much longer than that.  

I believe my passion for medicine and healing came from my dad, as he was in the field for many years.  My mother is also passionate for all animals and taught us from a very early age to listen and watch them, to feed them and nurture them.  

I love my family time, art, sewing and handyman projects.  I enjoy helping people with their pets as well.  I have one dog friend I love to hang with, her name is Terrabull, TayTay for short. I have one betta fish named Summer, and one cat named Dutchy.  I also have 13 chickens that I adore. 


Sarah is a vet tech at Newbury Animal Hospital-Newbury, MA


  I have been a vet tech since 2012. My favorite part of being a tech is surgery and nursing care for sick animals. I love cats and dogs but I have a soft spot for rodents and wildlife. When I'm not at work I enjoy being outdoors and hiking with my dog, Jake. I live with my pit bull and 3 cats.

Laurie is a veterinary technician at Newbury Animal Hospital- Newbury, MA


My name is Laurie and I have had the pleasure of treating many animals over the last 20 years as a Veterinary Technician on the seacoast.  I find behavior, wound care, and physical therapy are my areas of interest. There are so many cases we can assist animals in that go hand and hand with medicine to improve their lives.  Here at Newbury Animal Hospital i've been lucky to work with a diverse group of Doctors, receptionists extraordinaire, and fellow technicians to expand on my knowledge of wildlife and new, exciting ideas in treatment. 

In my off time I enjoy hiking with my children and dogs, riding and competing my horses, hanging with my goats and cats, occasionally getting away, and hope to get back to scuba diving soon. 

We share our lives with Emmett Otter Acorn Eater Jingleheimer Schmidt, Sarah Jean Horse, Its a Miracle, William Henry Bonny, Emma Louise Pearl, Brutus aka Bag, Orange aka Lizzie and a variety of parakeets whose names change on the daily. 

Brett veterinary Technician Hello! My name is Brett. I have been a vet tech since 2018 but have always had a passion for helping animals and local wildlife. I have experience working with many different species, ranging from alligators to emus, though my favorite animal is my dog, a corgi mix, named Barbara aka Babs. In my free time, I like to hike and explore new places but also enjoy just staying in and cooking. In the future, I plan to attend veterinary school and pursue my dream of becoming a veterinarian, focusing on wildlife and exotic animals.


Chloe Veterinary Technician

My name is Chlöe and I'm new to Newbury Animal Hospital and new to being a veterinary technician. I'm loving learning new things and gaining experience with this incredible team. I have loved animals my whole life and I'm so glad to be working with them every day. I am especially interested in animal behavior. When I'm not at work I like hiking, sailing, cooking,
and gardening.


Mary is a vet tech -Newbury Animal Hospital - Newbury, MA


My name is Mary. I have been a technician for many years since the early '90s. I took 15 years off to be a stay-at-home mom to two boys (now young men). I came back to the field about 3 years ago. I love working with animals and have found wonderful people to work with here at NAH. I have two dogs named Diesel and Lola, three cats named Mika, Jamie, and Kuzco
(who I adopted through MRFRS), and two guinea pigs named Kiwi and Coconut. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. Also, I like to go hiking from time to time.

Andrea and Abby - Newbury Animal Hospital-Newbury, MA


My name is Andrea and I'm a veterinary technician here at Newbury Animal Hospital.  I've been working in the veterinary field for about 7 years and am still learning daily. My husband and I are proud parents of quite a few fur babies, including 3 dogs and 3 cats, as well as a leopard gecko.  I also work with a local shelter and foster kittens from time to time.  When not working, you can find me hanging with my dogs, reading and traveling to New Hampshire to see my family.  Aside from animals, I also have a passion for coffee, crafting and horror movies.  

I can't wait to meet your critters and give them the best care!


Tara veterinary technician


My passion for animals has been evident throughout my life. Anyone who has grown up with pets knows that there is a strong bond of unconditional love that forms. Growing up, I had many different species of pets that I loved and cared for. Between graduating with a B.S. in Animal Science, working as a veterinary technician, training dogs, and teaching Animal Science, I
have more than 19 years’ experience with working with animals in addition to caring for my own pets. Currently, my family consists of myself, my husband Ian, my 3-year-old daughter, Aubrey, my elderly mutt Jalapeño, and my three Nigerian Dwarf goats, Pippy, Petunia and Pepper. My favorite past time includes going on small hikes with EVERYONE and snuggling in
the house with EVERYONE (goats included) :)




Kathy is a receptionist at Newbury Animal Hospital-Newbury, MA


Let's see, I've been at this for about 26 years now...the first 10 years I did a mixture of Tech work and front desk work.  These days I am pretty exclusive to the front desk. 

The last 12 years I've happily spent at Newbury Animal Hospital working with a great group of people.  I currently own 1 dog, Wickett, a English Bull Terrier and cat, Mr. Whiskers, an orange kitty that adopted me a few years back.  I also have 2 betas, and a Brazilian Blue Tarantula (yup), say what you want but he kinda grew on me.  I have also have many birds over the years. 

Yes, you could say I've had my fair share of animals but my favorite animal has thus far eluded makes me sad to say that I have never owned a horse (deep sigh).  I'm now past wanting to OWN one, I just want access to a nice Quarter horse that I can ride when the spirit moves me (HINT, HINT)! 


Nancy is a receptionist - Newbury Animal Hospital - Newbury, MA



Having worked in the veterinary field since 1992, I can't imagine doing anything else. There is nothing more rewarding than helping people and their pets become and stay healthy and happy. From new puppies and kittens to elderly pets needing "special" love and attention, each one is unique and so many remain always in my heart and mind.

Newbury Animal Hospital has been a wonderful place to work for the last 5+ years. Dr. Grillo and his veterinarian associates are excellent! I really enjoy working with the staff. We are a team and a family that is proud of our work ethic as well as our compassion for pets, clients and co-workers.

Other than animals in my life, I enjoy reading, crafting and especially knitting! Of course, interesting walks with friends and dogs is always enjoyable!

I have had many dogs and cats over the years. In twenty six years I have only been without a dog partner for 6 months. Currently my best friend is my little mop dog Floki. He will be happy to say hello to you when you are at our office!


Zoe Reception Staff


Hi, I'm Zoe and I am a receptionist here, and I also occasionally assist the technicians! I have my associate degree in Animal Care Specialty and my bachelor's degree in Expressive Art Therapy. I am extremely passionate about animal care and the transitive quality of healing through animals, and other modalities of healing such as music and art.
My earliest memories as a child all involve dogs and animals in general and wanting to save them and love them! I have experience dog walking, pet sitting, and bringing my family dog into assisted living facilities for pet therapy. Before NAH, I worked and volunteered at an animal
shelter, worked as a vet tech, and volunteered as a foster mom for five different amazing dogs. I am endlessly inspired and motivated by my colleagues here at NAH and am in awe of their hard work, dedication, knowledge, and compassion. 


Lori Reception Staff


My name is Lori I have worked in the veterinary field for over ten years. I've been at Newbury Animal Hospital for eight months. I have always been an animal lover and absolutely love what I do. When I'm not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband Bruno, our two teenage girls Gianna & Alexa, and of course our dog Ella who is spoiled rotten.

Jen is a receptionist - Newbury Animal Hospital -Newbury, MA


I have been at Newbury Animal Hospital for 5 years.  I live on Plum Island with my husband Justin and our two pets. Sophie, is a 12 year old Shih tzu and Sea Bass, an almost 2 year old cat. Both, like all of my coworkers pets, are quite spoiled. I also have a special place in my heart for elephants and a few years ago I traveled to South Africa to volunteer on a wild life reserve to experience them in their natural habitat. I made life-long friends from all over the world and had an experience of a life time. In our spare time my husband and I enjoy boating, snowmobiling, and spending time with our pets.


Reception Team - Emma - Newbury Animal Hospital, Newbury, MA


Hi there! I've been at NAH for less than a year and I recently graduated from Smith College with a degree in Neuroscience and pre-health. As a senior, I took the opportunity to sneak cats and kittens back to my campus house and foster them throughout the year. I've spent most of my life fostering with my mom and sister and I just couldn't stay away! Being a huge cat person, I spent my first few weeks at the hospital trying to win the favor of our office
cats with chicken; it wasn't very difficult. At home, I live with my person and our three cats, Prince Salami (grey floof), Reuben Sandwich (big tabby boy), and Comrade Yzma Gloo (another grey floof). In my spare time, I love to write, play tennis, backpack, ski, collect dice, and cross- stitch. I'm a big traveler and I'm a huge April fool. I can't wait to meet your sweet babies and help give them the best care possible!


Office Manager

Corrine Office Manager


After being away for five years, I'm back! From 2011 to 2014, I was a receptionist here at Newbury Animal Hospital. After having my third child, I decided to take a break and stay home with my children. However, the employees and clients at NAH are like my second family,
so I couldn't stay away for long. I returned as a receptionist in 2019, then in 2020, I received the honor of being promoted to Office Manager. I live in Peabody with my husband Jae and our three daughters. We also have a dog named Millie and a cat named Toby. When I'm not at work or with my family, I enjoy yoga, meditation, nature, and crafting.

Practice Manager
Toni is our practice manager.-Newbury Animal Hospital- Newbury, MA

I started here in June 2019 as a receptionist and was promoted in January 2020 to my
current role as Practice Manager. Previously I worked in the Biotechnology industry in Clinical Systems, but I have always loved animals and have volunteered for a number of rescue organizations over the years. Spending my days working with animals is something I used to dream about. One of the things I like best about working at NAH is the people with whom I work and the clients that we see. Everyone here is warm, friendly, professional, and truly cares about our clients and their pets. It really feels like a family.
My husband and I are currently servants to our MRFRS rescue cats, Henry, and Portia. When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, gardening, skiing, traveling, crafting, and reading.



Lindsey and George - Lindsey is kennel staff- Newbury Animal Hospital-Newbury, MA


Hi, my name is Lindsay and I've been working at Newbury Animal Hospital for about 6 years now.  You may not see me a lot, but I am always in the background, either running around to assist the techs, caring for any pets staying for the day, or keeping the boarders happy and comfortable.  I'm happy to say I enjoy coming to work.  These people are like family to me and the hospital kitties have become my own. If you happen to see our kitty George, I am nearby!  

When I'm not working I enjoy hanging with my kitty Taya or spending time with friends and family!


Hospital kitties

Capone ( aka Pony) lives here at Newbury Animal Hospital-Newbury, MA

Capone (aka Pony):

Pony is one of our beloved resident kitties.  He came to us via the feline shelter in Salisbury after someone had noticed he was injured and trapped him.  His tail was badly injured and we spent several weeks trying to save it before the decision to amputate was made.  During the process of caring for him, the staff fell in love and he did too!  When he arrived he was very scared and unhappy to be touched, nows he's a little lovebug!  He spends most of his days begging the front desk for treats (and succeeding) and sleeping on the warm dryer or snuggling with George.  Pony is truly a part of our NAH family.


George lives here at Newbury Animal Hospital - Newbury, MA

George first started here as a patient several years ago.  After he developed serious urinary issues the owners were no longer able to care for him and we took him in.  Several surgeries and a special diet later, George is doing great!  George spends his day stealing food and seats! If you've ever seen our receptionists perched on the very edge of their seat, that's because George is sprawled out behind them! When he's not stealing our seats or food, he spends his time cuddled up with his best friend Pony. George has made another great addition to our NAH family!
