Brianna started here at Middlesex Animal Hospital in 2021. She has always had a love for animals growing up, but her true passion to work in the veterinary industry started when she rescued her first dog, Ozzy. After watching him recover and transform from being in an abusive situation, she knew helping animals is where she belonged. Brianna is currently enrolled in the Penn Foster College Associates Veterinary Technology program, working towards her goal of becoming a Licensed Veterinary Technician. Here at the hospital, Brianna assists with the day-to-day appointments, procedures, upkeep of our clinic, and caring for each animal that comes through our door like she would her own. Out of the office, Brianna likes to enjoy her time spent with her boyfriend, Sean, and their 2 dogs going on long walks, camping, vacationing, or cuddling up at home with a movie.
