Technician SupervisorGina Bongiorni
My name is Gina, and I’ve been a veterinary technician since 2006. I am fortunate to work at VCA Allenwood where I can blend my passion for veterinary medicine and management. I earned an MBA in 2008 and am currently pursuing a degree and certification in veterinary technology. My former dog Mikey sparked my love of animals and taught me about kindness, compassion, and respect for our four legged companions. I was lucky to have spent fifteen years with him, and my goal is to give all of our patients the same opportunity to live a long and healthy life. My fiancé James and I live with our three rescued pets: Orville and Scout (our cats) and Taco (our Chihuahua).
My passion is animals and I have been a vet tech for 10 + years. Growing up with many different animals I always knew I wanted to be in the field of veterinary medicine. I currently have 4 cats, 2 dogs, chickens, horses, and lizards. On my off time I enjoy spending time with my family and animals. I look forward to meeting you and your furry or feathered family members!
Since I was a child I have always had a strong connection and fascination with all types of animals. I've been a veterinary technician for more than 10 years now. I have been here at Allenwood Animal Hospital for about 4 years. My specialty here at Allenwood is understanding feline behavior, which is why they named me the cat champion of our hospital. I am a native of Long Beach Island. I have 4 pets of my own, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I feel lucky that I am able to work with animals every day!
Nancy has been a technician at VCA Allenwood since 2003. Although Nancy is here part time, her contagious energy is felt throughout the hospital everyday. Hard work, a positive attitude, and genuine care for our patients and their families make her a valuable part of our team! Nancy lives with her husband and kitties and spends much of her free time cooking us delicious meals.
I have always had a love for animals and enjoyed interacting with them since I was a little girl. I was lucky enough to be hired as a technician at a private practice for 4 years. I am a newer member of the VCA family. I worked at a Florida VCA for 2 years and transferred back to NJ. I’ve attended seminars and have had amazing hands on experience throughout my career as a technician. I have four wonderful Springer Spaniels and a Cavalier. Sadie, Ruby and Chunck live with my parents. Chloe (who I consider my best friend) and Sookie live with my fiancé and I. On my free time I enjoy going to the beach, taking my dogs for a run, nature walks, basically anything outdoors and hanging out with my family.
We just wanted to wish Joan a happy retirement after serving our hospital for 35 years! We wish her all the best and we will miss seeing her on a regular basis.
My name is Jacqui and I have been with Allenwood Animal Hospital since February 2014. I came into Veterinary medicine after receiving my Bachelors in Marine Biology. I attended Harcum College in Bryn Mawr PA and received my Associates in Veterinary Technology in 2013. I am a current candidate to sit for my Veterinary Technician National Exam. I love helping in surgery and working with our exotic patients. I currently live with my fiance and our 5 year old Jersey Wooley Rabbit, Gizmo. We also co-own a wonderful rescued Pit Bull named Gigi. I enjoy reading, spending time with my family and baking.
My name is Cindy and I'm one of the newest members to the Allenwood team. I started in this field in Florida as a kennel manager working my way up to a veterinary technician. This has always been a dream job for me along with becoming a clown in the Ringling Brothers Circus. Dreams can happen. I moved back to New Jersey with Scott, my boyfriend of five years, and I am the proud owner of a big boy named K.C. who is a 24 lb. orange cat - full of love. My hobbies include making balloon animals, painting ceramic houses, and just enjoying the outdoors. I have two daughters Jamie and Carly who live in Florida. Jamie is studying to become a marine biologist and Carly a veterinarian at the University of Florida.
