    Debbie has been with VCA Beacon Hill Cat Hospital as the Hospital Manager since August 2012. She is always full of enthusiasm for all pets and especially for those cats who need a little more patience.

    In her spare time, Debbie is a competitive swimmer for the Alexandria Masters Swim Team. She loves competing and travels to many swim meets. She also enjoys jumping out of perfectly good airplanes and is now working towards her Skydiving "A" License.

    Debbie is married to Jared, who is active duty Air Force. Together, they have 3 cats; Marshmellow, Tank and Motley, as well as 2 dogs; Georgia and Pepper.

    "I love working with people as well as animals. I know that no other job could give me the same satisfaction as this one does. It's very rewarding knowing that I can continually help clients and their pets."


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
