Meet our Technicians
Veterinary medicine is a very fascinating field to work in. There are always new things to learn about. I am very interested in educating myself about veterinary procedures such as dentals and assisting with surgery. I love traveling around the world meeting new people and learning about different cultures. On my free time I enjoy to scuba diving, snowboarding, and participating in different events such as half marathons and bike races. Where there is adventure I am sure to be found! Being creative is what I do best. I enjoy drawing and painting. You can see some of my work behind the front desk as you enter the hospital. I have a beautiful pit bull named Penny Lane. My angel is 6 years old and we spend every waking moment together.

My name is Kim, I grew up in Maryland and went to Penn State to study Communications and Marine Science. After graduation, I developed a horseback riding program and took people camping on horseback. I started in the veterinary field as a receptionist for a local clinic. I discovered I was curious about science and medicine. Shortly after graduating, I was hired as a Animal Care Specialist / Veterinary technician for dolphins and sea lions. I left Maryland for this position and moved to the submarine base in Kings Bay, Georgia. While working in Kings Bay, I met my husband, Mark; he is a Navy submariner. Several years after I started my job working with marine mammals, Mark was relocated to the Navy’s recruiting station in Philadelphia. Our pets are King (four year old year old German Shepherd), Calvin (two year old Weimaraner mix), Roxy (twelve year old Tortie).

Hi, my name is Megan. I graduated from Temple University with a Bachelors degree in Kinesiology and have been in the veterinary field for the last 7 years. In my free time, I enjoy running, CrossFit, baking and trying new restaurants with friends. I currently live with my two cats, Harley and Stella.

I joined the BMVH team in September of 2012 hoping to learn more about the small animal veterinary world. It has been a great experience thus far working alongside the doctors, my fellow technicians, and of course the pets – all of whom have only increased my desire to become a veterinarian myself. Prior to my arrival at BMVH, I spent time teaching about HIV/AIDS in rural villages of Tanzania, studying the ranging patterns of woolly monkeys in Amazonia Ecuador, and working on trail conservation in the Sierra Nevadas. At the moment, I spend my free time studying and hanging out with my two fur-balls, Peaches and Bamboo, both of whom came from BMVH litters.
