Veterinary Technicians & Assistants

Veterinary Technicians are a vital part of the Old Lyme Veterinary Hospital's culture. We rely on their expertise every day, and each one of our technicians is equally talented at their individual specialties, including dentistry, inventory, nutrition, and training. 


Jennifer started her journey in veterinary medicine in 1996; she was with OLVH for a few years (took some time to raise her son Thomas), and then returned to our team in January 2013. Jennifer is a Certified Dental Technician, Certified Fear Free, a Certified Bereavement Counselor, and a Reiki Master. Jenn is happily married to Donnie and while they have a wide collection of children, Thomas is the only one technically theirs. She lives on a farm with Lily (French bulldog), Freeda (Lab), and Brutus (Boxer). She loves being outside and is an avid trail rider and reader.


Erin joined our team in June of 2012. She spends her free time hiking, geocaching, and volunteering with a marine animal rescue and rehabilitation program. She also has her B.S. in Animal Science. Erin loves pet rats though she does not currently have any of her own. She shares her home with her dog, Jake, a black lab mix. 


Erin is a homegrown veterinary assistant who grew up on her family's dairy farm. She always knew she had a passion for animals, but started her career in human medicine to become an RN. A couple years into nursing school, Erin decided humans just weren't for her, and she wanted to pursue veterinary medicine. She started at OLVH as a kennel assistant in June 2019 and showed her continuous passion for the care of animals. Because of that passion, Erin took on a new role as veterinary assistant in September 2019. Erin has four human children, as well as four animal children: Hazel (pit bull), Pacman (boxer), Junior (quarter horse), and Half Pint (Holstein cow). Erin also has a bunny, Snowflake, a painted turtle, Ralph, and many chickens. Erin is very outgoing and has a contagious smile. She enjoys spending time on weekend trips with her family, mostly at Mystic Aquarium or somewhere quiet in New Hampshire.


Jenn is an aspiring CVT and is attending Penn Foster. She has 8 years of customer service skills, has an interest in dentistry, and loves being at OLVH! She is married to a great guy named Chris, and has three beautiful fur children: Dutchess (a boxer wolfhound mix), Nova (a black lab), and Brover (a shih-tzu). She enjoys shopping, hanging out with her family (especially her mom), and pet sitting. Jenn is excited to meet you and your animals!


Kristine started with us in the Winter of 2020. She comes to us with over 30 years of experience as a CVT. She is board certified in anesthesia, as well as having certifications in veterinary nutrition and radiography. She currently lives with her 2 cats Leon & Smooch. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, glass blowing, and relaxing days at the beach.

He and his wife have 7 rescued animals: 3 dogs (Bear, Moose & Otter) and 4 cats (Morrigan, Mortimer, Magrat, and Nanny Ogg). Mike enjoys travelling with his wife and visiting our national parks.
