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.



Senior Treatment TechnicianChristine Ball,

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.



Head Vet TechnicianAnna Blaszkiewicz,
Office Assistant

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.



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.

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 GroomerColleen D.,
Groomer

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 Technician

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,
Head Technician

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,

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.

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 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.

Hi, I'm Brianna, I was born in Danville, Pennsylvania. When I was twenty one years old, I decided to move to Phoenix Arizona where I attended Pima Medical Institute. I graduated in 2016 as a Veterinary Assistant. I also volunteered my time while in school. I helped at Halo Animal rescue, which is a no kill animal shelter and a safe haven for abused and abandoned animals in Phoenix AZ. Four years later, I made the move to Connecticut to work in my field and further my education. My current goal is to become a certified Veterinary Technician. I would also love to specialize in Veterinary Dentistry. It is my passion to help and care for your pet.

Norwalk Animal Hospital MascotPuff,
Hospital Mascot

Puff is our "magic" Bearded Dragon and our staff MVP. He came to us after being rescued from an abandoned apartment in 2014. Puff enjoys basking on his driftwood, eating crickets and making friends with folks in the lobby. He also loves to greet the staff each morning with head-bobs and travel around on our shoulders. Though we don’t know what his life was like before coming to us, we know that he has brought joy to us ever since joining our team. We estimated him to be a few years old when he first came to us, so he is probably around 7 years old now. Stop by and say hi to Puff anytime you visit the hospital, he will be very happy to see you.
