Terri has always loved being around animals of all kinds. Growing up in NJ, she was the neighborhood pet sitter, and rescued her own first dog as a stray. After a career in restaurant and food service management, she accepted an opportunity to do something she had always wanted to do – work with animals. She accepted a position to manage a boarding and dog day camp facility. Terri learned over the years a great deal about animal care and dog behavior. She feels it is an honor to care for other’s “fur-kids”, and does so as she would care for her own. She loves to build relationships in her community with pet owners, and in gaining their trust that she will always do the right thing in their care.
Terri happily made the leap to Ark Animal Hospital, and in continuing her passion for working in the world of animals.
Terri lives with her husband, Chuck, and four ‘fur-kids” – Enya, a Siberian Husky; Yuengling, a King Charles Cavalier; Wednesday, a Miniature Pincer; Dr. Fuzz, a wire haired Yorkshire Terrier. They also share their home with two Leopard Gecko’s, Lexi and Lizzy.
When not surrounded by animals, Terri believes in giving-back and community involvement. Previously a Councilwoman, she is currently involved in may groups and committees and animal rescues.
