Liz joined us with a long background in animal care. She was always drawn to a career that revolved around animals and pets. Liz spent a significant amount of time on a farm as a child, which fueled her passion and a degree in biology. When she isn’t at work, Liz is an equine enthusiast, spending hours riding horses, hiking, or doing just about anything in the outdoors. She also has a menagerie of her own rescue pets at home, including Mia, Popeye, Angus, Uno, and Slick.
Jane is one of the friendly faces you might often see at the practice. Before having children, Jane worked at animal hospitals, and found a love for the job again. Originally from Middlesex, New Jersey, Jane has always had dogs, and now has a rescue cat named Petunia. When she isn’t at the clinic, this selfless staff member is usually reading with her book club, taking care of her grand-dog named Cannoli, visiting her kids, or volunteering for meals on wheels.
Lorraine has been in the animal care field for many years, and when her employer purchased the practice, she joined LVAH. Early in her career, Lorraine was focused on grooming and education, before finding her passion for the medical field. She is dedicated to helping all pets and their families but especially loves working with dogs. When not busy working, Lorraine loves gardening, singing in her choir, relaxing with loved ones, and playing with her Chihuahua named Taffy.
Amy was born and raised in New Jersey and has a degree in equine science, and environmental science. This love of the natural world has guided her work life and led her to approach the staff on a whim, to see if there were open positions. Much to our luck, we hired her, and Amy joined the Long Valley team the following week. When she isn’t working, Amy spends her time with dog Bayou (a rescue from Texas), running, and fishing. Amy is also quite the movie buff, so be sure to hit her with your film & tv trivia!
Courtney, one of our talented veterinary technicians, is a New Jersey native. Growing up on a horse farm instilled a love for animals early on, and that has continued to shape her career. She is currently a student, enrolled in Penn Foster, and loves anything outdoors. When she isn’t at work, you may find her hiking, kayaking, or cuddling her many pets. Courtney has two dogs, a bunny, and several chickens at home.
Samantha, Client Service Representative
Sam is currently in school for vet care, after finding her career in animal medicine. This change of path has been incredibly fulfilling and Sam looks forward to helping animals in a larger capacity soon. Growing up in Morris County, this New Jersey native loves to read, study coursework, and relax with her cats, Stevie and Hatch. Hatch is a cat, but typically thinks he is a dog, while Stevie loves life, even with just one kidney.
Kyle always had a desire to become a vet, and truly fell in love with animal medicine in 2016, when he became a technician. Kyle hails from northern New Jersey and is fond of his home state. When he has a day off, you will probably spot Kyle with his rescue cat Gypsy, reading, or playing video games.
