While completing my degree in graphic design at Central Connecticut State University I took part-time position as a kennel assistant at an area animal hospital. I have not left the veterinary field since! I began my career in 1992 scooping poop and answering phones. In 1995 I left Connecticut and relocated to New Hampshire. In 1996 I was hired to fill the receptionist position here at Northside Animal Hospital. You can see I made use of my college education! In 2000 I took a veterinary technician position. My experiences with this part of veterinary medicine were amazing. In 2003 I filled the hospital management position. My twelve years here at NAH have been an incredibly rewarding experience. I love Northside, our team, and especially our clients and their critters.
On a personal note, I share my home with my three wonderful boys. We have been taken over by a crew of critters: "Blossom" my Old English Sheepdog and cats "Pepper" and "Ty-buggy".
While obtaining my degree at an area college I worked for Petco. Here is where I realized that my love for animals would lead me into this field. In 2004 I was hired to fill the receptionist job here at Northside Animal Hospital. I have loved every second of it! I love being a part of the Northside family and part of our patients lives. Our clients and patients are locked into my heart! I live with my husband in a little home with our dog "Krum", cat "Cringer", rabbit "Snuffy", rat "Splinter", geckos, frogs, and fish. Our newest member was just introduced this spring 2008, a crayfish! I can't see myself doing anything else or being anywhere else. Northside is my second home!
I began work at Northside Animal Hospital in November 2005. I was hired to fill the receptionist position. I have learned a great deal from Dr. Bloomfield and Dr. Krogman regarding animal medicine. It has been very rewarding! I love getting up and going to work. I have felt this way since the first day I began work three years ago. I truly love working with clients and being part of the NAH family. My extended family includes: "Brodie" our Dobie, and two cats "Pumpkin" and "Copper".
CERTIFIED VETERINARY TECHNICIAN
A native of Massachusetts, I began my schooling at Emmanuel College in Boston and received my Bachelors degree in Business Management. During my studies I interned at a local veterinary clinic. The fall after graduation I enrolled in the Veterinary Technology program at Mount Ida College in Newton Massachusetts. I completed my degree in the spring of 2010 after 2 Ĺ years of study. This summer I took the Veterinary Technician Certification test and passed. I have 2 dogs, Westley a rescued hound mix from Mississippi, and Muffin a beagle adopted from the animal program at Mount Ida College. Both are a handful but thatís why I love them. I am enjoying my time here at Northside Animal Hospital and look forward to growing in this profession.

I currently live in Candia New Hampshire with my 3 wonderful dogs and 3 purrrrfect cats. I have always had a love for animals. I was always the little girl who wanted to save the baby bird that fell from its nest or rescue a stray to help find it a new home. Before earning my degree in Veterinary Technology from Great Bay Community College I worked at Northside Animal Hospital as an intern. I just loved it here so upon completion of my schooling I accepted a position as a veterinary technician. I worked at Northside for 3 years before moving to Maine. I took a position as a Veterinary Technician at Bracket Street Veterinary Hospital for a year but just had to return home and to Northside. Iíve been here ever since!!!!!

Tatianna began her career in veterinary medicine in Texas where she worked as a veterinary technician assistant. After a year she moved back to the area to be with family. She enjoyed very much working with people and companion animals and decided to stay in this field. Shortly after arriving in New Hampshire she obtained a job at an area pet resort.
