Amy has been a member of our staff since 2005. Although a dog person at heart, Amy has also raised a variety of reptiles over the years and is knowledgeable in the care and handling of snakes and lizards. Amy has received extensive on-the-job training and passed the Veterinary Technician National Exam in 2006, completing all the requirements for her CVT certification in 2013. In addition to her full-time position here, she owns and operates the Tiger Institute Tae Kwon Do studio in Saugus, where she began training in 1987 and holds a 4th-degree black belt. Amy is frequently accompanied at work by Jenny, a scruffy terrier mix who she rescued in a parking lot in Puerto Rico. She also has two “differently-abled” cats, Henrietta and Iris, who were both adopted as injured strays.
