Diane got us out of the gate here at Patapsco Valley Veterinary Hospital with her sixteen year plus wealth of computer knowledge. She keeps our patient records up to date, our financial forms in order, and is an integral part of the veterinary reception desk staff. When she's away from the office she loves to spend time with her husband, traveling and going to concerts.
Jan helped us start the practice in 1998, with an eye to detail and a take charge ability, built from a history of working for assorted veterinarians since 1987. As an anchor of the reception team, she keeps things organized, and is a natural trouble shooter. When she's not at the office she enjoys, reading, painting, and gardening.
Kim has been in the veterinary profession for over thirty years. As our vet technician/receptionist she has been here at Patapsco Valley Veterinary Hospital since 1998. Her many years of experience in the field makes her an integral part of our staff. When asked why she has stayed in the field as long as she has, she responded, "I absolutely love my job and all that it entails, as we treat not only the patients, but the owner, which is equally as important. The veterinary field is very rewarding and often challenges me to think beyond the obvious. Pets are with us through many of life's experiences and I can't imagine my life without one!"
Jackie is our cat loving technician, with 20 plus years experience in the veterinary field, who keeps the night shift going. Her love of animals keeps her here, even when she'd rather be out trail riding her own Mountain horse LeDoux. Jackie enjoys getting out in the fresh air. When she's not here, she's normally talking with her conure Oliver, or spoiling her precious Persian, Boobee.
Hannah has headed off to college but we are counting on her to continue to pitch hit during the holidays and summer. She has been eager to learn from the time she joined us. You can always count on Hannah to go that extra step, and she's always there with a helping hand and a winning smile. She is studying psychology, and her work here has made her realize just how important a pet can be to their human's health. When she's out of the office she likes to take pictures and spend time with her friends. She has four cats, Allison, Bree, Callie, and Juliet.
