I grew up in Staten Island, N.Y. where I graduated from SUNY Buffalo, then received my Master's in Counseling Psychology from New York University.  Before coming to Norwalk Animal Hospital I worked in a variety of settings including educational institutions, non-profit organizations, community agencies, and the corporate world.  In my spare time I enjoy painting, spin classes, going to the beach, and spending time with my family and adorable Havanese, Britney Jean (aka Bee Boo).

Licensed Veterinary TechnicanJoanna B. McLaughlin,
LVT, CCRA, Licensed Veterinary Technician, Certified Canine Rehabilitation Assistant

I graduated from Mercy College in 1999 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Veterinary Technology. I became a Licensed Veterinary Technician shortly after graduation. In 2000, I began working at Norwalk Animal Hospital as a technician. In 2012 I completed my certification through the Canine Rehabilitation Institute and joined my husband at Sound Paws. I developed an interest in physical therapy after experiencing its benefits first hand, with my young child. I have seen how much rehab can also help animals and am very proud to be part of the profession.

Head Vet TechnicianChristine Ball,
CVT, Head Veterinary Technician

Hi, I'm Christine the Head Technician at Norwalk Animal Hospital. I am a Certified Veterinary Technician and have been with the Hospital since 2001. Like many of our clients I have several pets of my own including a dog (Emi), three cats (Mira, Miyu, and Renji), and two parrots (Handsome and Grey Bird) - all of which were rescues. I have always had a special bond with animals and am glad to be able to work with them on a daily basis. I use my knowledge and passion to help others form a greater understanding of veterinary technology and help them to provide compassionate care for patients, as well as clients, in our practice.

Norwalk Front Desk SupervisorBlake Polett, CCRA, Front Desk Supervisor, Certified Canine Rehabilitation Assistant

Hi, I'm Blake. I am the Front Desk Supervisor and a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Assistant. I have lived in Fairfield County all of my life and graduated from Manhattanville College in New York with a Master's in Teaching English. My parents taught me to have great respect and love for animals at an early age and I grew up with a rescued Doberman-mix, guinea pigs and rabbits. After college, I soon realized that I had a great passion for animal rescue. In 2009 this love for animals and an interest in veterinary medicine led me to work at Norwalk Animal Hospital where I learn something new every day and treat every patient as if they were my own treasured pet. In 2013 I completed training at the Canine Rehabilitation Institute in Florida to become a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Assistant. I currently have four rescued fur-children: Sugar a Pit Bull mix, Harley a Schnoodle, and two cats, Presley & Smurf. I enjoy fishing, travel, and spending time with friends and family.

Norwalk Veterinary TechnicianTom Brown,
Veterinary Technician

I was born in Norwalk and have lived here most of my life. I started working with animals at pet stores then moved on to veterinary medicine. When I first came to Norwalk Animal Hospital in 2004, I began with reception and kennel work and then became a technician. I have had a few different pets including a mixed breed dog, four Florida Bark Scorpions, two Leopard Geckos, a Savannah Monitor Lizard, and currently have two male cats. In my free time I enjoy kayaking, camping and playing pool.

Norwalk Animal Care SpecialistPaul Lanning,

I am originally from New York City and have lived in Norwalk for more than 30 years. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree from Boston University . I love all dogs and cats and have cared for them throughout my life, believing that they represent everything that is good, honest, and true in this world. I presently have two dogs, Chance a Golden Retriever, and Ginger, a Pomeranian. I joined Norwalk Animal Hospital and Dental Clinic in 2007. Spending the day caring for the animal is a reward in itself. It is thrilling to be on the support staff for such skilled and dynamic team of practitioners. I am proud to participate at a facility that I can wholeheartedly recommend to fellow pet owners. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, listening to music, and loafing around with my wife Maureen.

Norwalk GroomerColleen,

Animals have always been a huge part of my life. Growing up in Easton, I had many family pets and knew that I would pursue a career of some kind in the animal field. In 1979, I became certified in dog grooming and have been doing so ever since. To me, dog grooming is an art and it also can be a challenge, but it's a fun challenge that I truly enjoy. As a groomer, having a hand in helping my furry little friends look their best is very rewarding to me. It's always so fun to see their adorable faces during the entire process. While some dogs may not be receptive to the bath or the grooming process, I know that proper grooming & upkeep is essential to their overall health. I am proud to be a part of the Norwalk Animal Hospital team. There's nothing like grooming a new puppy for the first time & seeing the reaction on their owner's face when they pick them up from their very first grooming experience! My years here at Norwalk Animal Hospital have been enjoyable with great doctors & an excellent staff always willing to lend a helping hand. When I am not working, I enjoy being with my family & friends & our many pets

Norwalk Technician AssistantJosefina Aguilar,
Rehabilitation Assistant

I have lived in Norwalk, CT since 1990.  Of all the jobs I have held, working in the veterinary field has been the most rewarding.  I have been working in the veterinary field for over seven years.  In those years it has been a great learning experience.  When not working I enjoy spending time with my family, petsitting, and dog walks. 

Norwalk Animal Care SpecialistMollee Kranes,

My love for animals started when I was a kid and my parents were hugely involved with greyhound rescue. At the age of 16 I started working in the veterinary field and all I wanted to do was...more. Over the years I have learned as much as I could (and continue to do so! ) to help our best friends. I love anesthesiology, emergency care, behavior, and training. I am a proud rescue mother of a pit bull/lab mix, a great dane, 2 great cats (all white and tortoise shell), hermit crabs and a chameleon. In my spare time I love boating, fishing, playing pool, and adventuring with the family (2 and 4 legged! ).

Norwalk Animal Care Technician AssistantAmanda McGarry,
Technician Assistant

My name is Amanda and I'm a Technician Assistant at Norwalk Animal Hospital. I've spent my life around animals of all kinds, especially horses. When I went to college I started working in show barns and made my passion my career. I'm currently a student at Penn Foster to become a certified Veterinary Technician with goals to become a large animal Tech. I am the proud mom of a dachsund, a pitbull, a cat and a horse. In my spare time I love to hike and compete with my horse at local and away shows.

Norwalk Animal Hospital Kennel TechnicianKathry (Kat) Junqueira,
Kennel Technician

Hi my name is Kat! I currently live in Norwalk and am working towards a biology degree as well as achieving my certification in wildlife rehabilitation. I've always had a special connection with animals starting from a young age and remember vividly badgering my parents for more pets rather than gifts. I have two beautiful dachshunds at home named Dory and Kora who I love to take to the dog park as well as hiking. My affinity for the furry, scaled, and feathered has taught me endless love and patience which I get to practice every day here at Norwalk Animal Hospital.

Norwalk Animal Hospital ReceptionistSydney Free,

Hi, I'm Sydney, and I'm the last of the 90's era to join the NAH team. I grew up with an older sister in Stamford, and I can tell you, family is a big part of my life. When I'm not working at the Hospital I find myself with friends, family, or outside exploring. Working here so far has been exciting and an amazing learning experience since this is my first job in the animal world. Although I am new to this field, I had the opportunity to grow up with two adorable Shih Tzu's, Bailey and Dylan, and because of them I knew I would fit in and love working here at Norwalk Animal Hospital.

Norwalk Animal Hospital GroomerMerissa D'Imperio,

Hi, I'm Merissa, one of the Groomers here at Norwalk Animal Hospital. I grew up in Putnam County and just recently moved to the area. I started grooming in 2015 after graduating from the American Academy of Pet Grooming in New York City. I grew up around many dogs, cats, rabbits, and hamsters. Since I was very young I was always interested in taking care of animals. I am the proud owner of two amazing Pitbulls, Nitro and Athena!
