Meet the Kennel Staff
I have been working with animals for nine years and have loved every minute of it. I have been grooming animals for the past six years. Nothing is more exciting than to see how happy a dog is after a great bath or haircut. I joined Bryn Mawr Vet in February 2012 and have enjoyed everything about working here. My lovely sidekicks are two fun powderpuff Chinese Cresteds named Jayda and Macy.
Did you Know: In my spare time I love to do crafts and sew, especially animal related things.
Hi my name is Chris and I love my job at Bryn Mawr Vet because I like to learn new things about veterinary medicine, getting the hands on training, and of course working with the animals. One of my hobbies outside of work would be helping stray animals. I really enjoy taking them in and caring for them. My pet at home is Nibbles the bunny. Nibbles is very friendly and silly. I also have three calico cats that are very loving and sweet.
Did you Know: My life is busy planning for my wedding which is taking place November 11th 2011!
My name is Jen and I graduated from the Baltimore Dog Grooming School and at that time decided to change career paths. I joined the Bryn Mawr Vet team in 2006 after we moved back to PA from many years in the Maryland area. My enjoyment in working at Bryn Mawr Veterinary Hospital is that everyday can be different for me and dealing with all the personalities of the furry four legged pets that cross my path. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my cousin Lynda and my daughter Catherine. Between the three of us we take care of our six dogs Blaze, Tutti, Lucky, Hoops, Noodle, and Angel. I also have two cats, Sweet Pea and Gizmo. “Dogs are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole” Roger Caras.

As a kid, a huge majority of my time was dedicated to animals. Whether I was in a tree checking on new born baby birds, wrangling insects, or training someone’s dog, I could always be found with an animal of some sort. It is a pleasure to work at Bryn Mawr Vet Hospital. I have two cats named Semi and Akeem, and a dog, Diamond!
Did you Know: In 2004 my mother was diagnosed with dementia. I have been my mother’s primary care taker since. A great deal of my spare time is shared with her.
Hi, my name is Lindsey and I grew up in West Chester, Pa and currently attend Temple University. Although I’m majoring in Psychology, I dream to one day work at the Philadelphia Zoo and/or own my own animal rescue. After we adopted my family dog, an American Bulldog named Petey, I knew I wanted to work with animals for the rest of my life. I love working at Bryn Mawr Veterinary Hospital and getting to know all the personalities of the dogs and cats when they come here!
