Client ServiceMary Reynolds
Mary joined our team in September of 2012. Previously she worked at the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. Mary loves her job and getting to meet all of the furry family members and their owners.
She has always lived in a house full of pets, and her current menagerie includes two cats, Sasha and Samantha, and a 'Bassetterrier' named Legolas. On her days off, Mary enjoys reading, spending time at the beach, and attempting various art projects.
"My parents had two children before me- a Labrador and a Golden Retriever. I have always lived in a home overflowing with animals, and I consider them just as much a part of my family as the humans! Animals are so much smarter than many people believe, but they have yet to master the powers of human speech, so it is our job to find out what is wrong when they are hurting or afraid. My own pets mean the world to me, and I love working in a place where our patients are given the dedicated care and attention that I expect for my own furry children."
Client ServiceBrittany Tacklin
Brittany moved to the Eastern Shore in 2013 with her family and two pets. Moving to the shore was a big deal for her since she was born in Bermuda and loves being able to have quick access to the local beaches.
In her spare time, Brittany enjoys going to the beach, drawing, driving around on the back roads, riding ATVs, and adopting animals from local shelters (which can attest for the 2 cats and a dog she's gained in the last year).
She is currently studying Biology with a Pre-Veterinary track at Salisbury University.
"It wasn't uncommon for me to come home with an animal, so I knew I needed to work with animals in some way. It would have been dinosaurs but I'm about 66 million years too late, so I figured cats and dogs would have to do. I've always said I'd end up the "crazy cat lady", but over the last few years, I've realized that I'm just the crazy animal lady. Working at VCA has granted me with a great opportunity to be able to experience the environment I plan to pursue a career in. Animals bring me so much joy, and I enjoy being able to interact with them on a daily basis!"
