Lisa has been with our veterinary hospitals since the spring of 2011 and has held a variety of positions between our two locations before taking on the role as Practice Manager in 2013. Her lifelong love of working with animals found her working as a Kennel Attendant, Zookeeper's Assistant, Veterinary Assistant, and Anesthetic Assistant for several years before finding her home with us at Noah's Ark Animal Hospitals. In the past, she also volunteered at shelters and in human healthcare with therapy animals where she realized she loved the positive impact the human-animal bond can have. She comes to work each day excited to spend time with her work family, the clients, and pets. She is inspired by her compassionate coworkers and strives to provide the support they need to continue their important work.
Lisa is a member of the Society for Human Resource Management, the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association, and earned her title of Certified Veterinary Practice Manager in 2018. She is originally from Nebraska where she attended the University of Nebraska - Lincoln before moving to the Northern Virginia area. She and her husband, Luke, share their Montclair home with a lively collection of Shiba Inus, cats, Chiweenies, and one super energetic Dachshund. Several of her pets were adopted through the Have-a-Heart program where they were cared for by the staff at each hospital before being healthy enough for adoption.
