    Lori Gallagher

    Lori started working for VCA Columbia at Centre Park in August 2012. Lori and her husband Tim have been living in Maryland for about 20 years. They currently live in Elkridge with their 2 Great Danes Stella and Norman.


    "Many things contribute to my enjoyment of a day of work at VCA Columbia Animal Hospital. I love helping not only the animals that come through the door but also their owners in making sure their animal's health is impeccable.  The thing I love most about what I do is the fact that I actually do love it. It's not a job if you love what you do, it's a pleasure.  I am eager to help all the animals that come thorugh the doors, seniors and youngsters.  I cherish every happy face and wagging tail I meet. It's only a greater pleasure to make sure the animals stay happy. I am glad that our clients choose VCA Columbia Animal Hospital because that means that I get to meet a new face and a new four-legged friend. VCA Columbia has given me great experience in my line of work that I will not soon forget."
