Front Office Staff
Brittany- Practice Manager
Over the past decade and a half, I’ve worked with every animal from bed bugs to beluga whales. I love seeing all the ways we interact with animals in our daily lives, and I’m fascinated with training and animal communication- so much so that I have a bachelor’s degree in animal behavior! My goal each day is to find solutions for our patients, clients and staff so that every pet receives the best care possible. When I’m not at AllCare I enjoy crocheting, baking, searching local beaches for sea glass, wine tasting, and watching Golden Girls marathons with my tortoise, Sophia Patrillo.
Melissa- Receptionist & Veterinary Nurse
After I had to put my childhood dog to sleep the vet and techs were so kind and comforting I knew I wanted to help comfort people in the same way. Every day my goal is to make friends with and help ease the pain of every animal that walks in the door. I want to create a safe, welcoming environment for clients, patients, and staff. I’m excited to learn more about surgery. My hospital superpower? Belly and tooshie rubs! (Just ask any pet I meet!) I have a dog, Sarah Lee, but I call her Squiggle Monkey. Outside work I like to read, go to live shows/concerts, work in my veggie garden, cook, sing karaoke, and binge watch Netflix/Hulu.
Each day my goal is to give the best possible service to our clients and their owners, to make each appointment as easy as possible. I’ve always been a cat lover, and I’m especially interested in learning more about cat behavior and working to demystify it for our clients. I now have my own adorable kitten, Tony Stark- named for both my love of the Marvel Universe and his sassy attitude. When not at our reception desk, I read historical fiction, cross stitch snarky things, garden, and facilitate awesome events with my husband.
When I was younger I had a fascination with horses, rabbits, and marine life. I always knew I wanted to do something the medical field to aid in the care of others, and after having a white and brown floppy eared bunny named Muffin I knew I’d one day love to work with animals. My goal each and every day is to create the most pleasant, heartfelt customer service experience to each of our patients and clients. I’m a mommy of three kids. They bring joy and meaning to my life- and there’s never a dull moment! I love to do arts and crafts, and give me a mic and a karaoke room and I’ll sing the whole night long.
Ferd joined the office in 2019. His daily goals are to look stunning, eat tiny pellets, and watch over the front lobby. He’s an Aquarius who enjoys short swims in the tanks and the music of Bobby Darin.
