Before joining us at Garland Road, Jennie worked with Orchard Grove Animal Hospital in Warwick, NY. She is most interested in animal acupuncture and nutrition. Jennie loves all animals but is a self-proclaimed “dog and bird person,” currently sharing her home with her husband Jon and several pets: A Plott Hound mix named Bella; A Boston Terrier named Buddy; A rescue bunny named Boop; And 2 parakeets named Creature and Ghost.

She’s been with us for a little over a year now, and when she isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her pets and family. Nicole enjoys working with both small and large animals.
Mary, Veterinary Technician
Mary joined Garland Road in June 2020. She was born and raised in Central Maine, but decided to move to south Florida to attend college. She moved back to Maine last summer to join us here! Mary grew up with a black lab named Emma, along with many rabbits and guinea pigs as well as two Nigerian dwarf goats named Charm and Owen. Mary received her veterinary technology degree from St. Petersburg College in St. Pete, FL and began her career at a small animal hospital there. Her favorite thing about working in veterinary medicine is acting as the voice for animals who don’t have the ability to speak for themselves and tell us when they are in need of help.
