Our Staff: 

Technicians...

Tammy

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. 

Anne

 My name is Anne and I've always had an interest in animals, wild and domestic, and grew up with multiple pets.  I pursued a bachelors degree in Zoology at UNH after declaring at a young age that I wanted to be a Zoologist.  My initial intent was to do field or zoo work but life redirected my path into the veterinary field.  I have been in the field since 1988 and received my CVT in 2006.  I mostly enjoy surgery and lab work. I currently have one cat name Bazinga and I enjoy gardening, sewing, knitting, felting, spending time outside and going to the drag races. 

Sarah

  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, 3 cats and a squirrel, Ollie! 

Dana

My name is Dana and i'm pictured here with my two dogs, Dozer and Boo.  In addition to my dogs I also have 4 cats, fish and i'm currently fostering 7 flying squirrels.  I have been here at Newbury Animal Hospital for 4 years.  Previously I had worked in an emergency veterinary hospital but I took a break to work in a human hospital as a scrub technician in the operating room doing Orthopedic surgeries in upstate N.Y., but my love for animals has brought me back. In my spare time I like to spend time with my husband
Steve, reading and gardening.  Working here at Newbury Animal Hospital has taught me how important it is to respect and appreciate all the wildlife around us. 

Laurie

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. 

Sara

My name is Sara and I have worked as a veterinary technician since 2012.  Currently, I have two very rambunctious cats at home, Emmy and Jack Jack, who like to keep me up all night playing.  Their cuteness makes it all worth it.  When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with  my daughter, being outside, and spending time with friends and family, and all their pets too.

Katelyn

My name is Katelyn, and I am a veterinary technician.  I'm new to the field of veterinary medicine, but my passion for animal care started at a young age! I've been working with animals from live stock to exotics for over 5 years, but dogs and cats are my favorite.  My home has always been filled with furry family members, right now I have two dogs, a cat, and lots of fish.  I'm so excited to start my career at Newbury Animal Hospital after recently passing my veterinary technician licensing exam.  I'm interested in the study of behavior, but my favorite part about being a vet tech is nursing care.  Its so gratifying to see the improvements you can make in an animal's life.  When I'm not working, I enjoy hiking in the woods with my dogs, camping, kayaking, and finding cool places to hammock. 

Kelly

Hi, my name is Kelly.  I have been here at Newbury Animal Hospital for about a year now, but I have been in the veterinary field for four years.  I have been around animals since I was born. I love fostering kittens and pitbulls and rehabbing squirrels.  

I currently live with a pittie named Titan, rottweiler named Sully, shepherd mix named Layla and a hound mix named Simba.  I also have 3 mice, a rabbit and 8 cats! I am currently rehabbing a squirrel named Moose.  Hope to see you soon! 

Andrea

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!

Receptionists...


Kathy

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 me...it 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

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!

Jen

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.

Office Manager

Kathie

I first met Dr Grillo when Newbury Animal Hospital was being built. I started working here when the practice opened in February 1992. My love of animals brought me here, and has kept me here since.

In the beginning, I was a groomer, receptionist, and technician, and also did the kennel work. Back then we did it all! Eventually I was promoted to office manager and hold that position to this day.

I love working at NAH. It is my second home, and my coworkers my second family. We have so many wonderful clients here, many of whom I have known since we opened. I have shared many, many wonderful joys and heartbreaking sorrows with them and their four legged children.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my human family, plus 3 dogs, 4 cats and 4 pet turkeys. I enjoy vegetable and flower gardening, reading and cooking.

Kennel

Lindsay

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)

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

George:
 
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!
