Technician and Lab Manager

  Bethany graduated from VTC in 1998 with an associates degree in animal science. She traveled around a bit until finally landing here at GMAH in 2005, and she's never been happier! She lives in Waterbury with her husband, Mark, and 3 cats - Phoebe, Simon & Dexter. Bethany loves being a vet tech because she gets to care for, love, and smooch on animals all day, and she wouldn't have it any other way! She is proud to be a member of the GMAH staff as she feels we offer a very high quality of veterinary medicine. It makes her feel good to think she might have made a difference in an animal's life, or hopefully, at least a better experience at the vet's office.

  Kayla grew up in small Vermont town and knew from an early age that she wanted to work with animals. She left for the "big"city to attend the University of Vermont in the fall of 2004. Four short years later she graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree with a major in Animal Science.  She decided to set up shop in Burlington with her cat, Cheeks, who knows over 12 commands- everything from"sit" to "shake a paw" to "stay out of the kitchen"(a necessity during dinner time.)  Kayla spent 5 years prior to joining the GMAH team at the Humane Society of Chittenden County heading up the feline program and kitten foster care.  When not at work, you can find Kayla rock climbing, hiking, or dancing about town.

 Abby found her love for animals while backpacking across Ecuador and Peru after graduating high school.  She pursued her passion by studying at the University of Vermont, and graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Biology. She focused mainly on birds throughout her college years and moved on to mammals when she traveled to Namibia to work at Na’an ku se Wildlife Sanctuary.  Abby was very excited to join the GMAH team in January 2016 to work towards her dream of becoming a wildlife veterinarian.

 Hope is currently a student at the University of Vermont majoring in Animal Science and on the pre-veterinary track. She’s originally from Long Island, NY where she grew up with animals of all kinds: birds, dogs, cats and horses. Last year she was able to add cows onto that list when she became president of CREAM, the student-run dairy farm at UVM. She kept the herd up to date on vaccinations as well as helping in the birth of multiple calfs. Although she loved being a part of CREAM, she realized that small animal medicine was her true passion and was lucky enough to pursue it when she started working at GMAH in June 2016. In her free time, Hope likes horseback-riding, snacking, and jamming out to The Beatles.
