I grew up on the North Shore of Long Island then graduated from Lake Forest College. I then graduated from BelRea Institute of Animal Technology. I have worked as a Certified Veterinary Technician and Practice Manager in Illinois, Colorado, and Connecticut and have been at Norwalk Animal Hospital since 1999. Outside of work I enjoy horseback riding, hiking, and spending time with my three teenage children and four pets.
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).
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.
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.
Hi, I'm Christine,one of the technicians 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 (Aila, 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.
I’m Anna, the Office Assistant at Norwalk Animal Hospital. I grew up in Poland and moved to the US in 1993 and graduated high school in Norwalk. I have been at NAH since 2008, starting at the Front Desk. I take a great deal of pride in my work and cherish the long-time relationships I’ve formed with clients. I have always had a special bond with animals, starting at an early age with our family Doberman and Giant Schnauzer. One of my greatest joys is spending time with my beloved English Pointer, Lily. I have three awesome nieces and a nephew, and I love spending time with family and friends. I have an active role in a local non-profit formed in honor of my late niece, Isabella, who battled Spinal Muscular Atrophy and help plan her memorial walk every year. I also enjoy baking and movies.
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! ).
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.

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.
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.
