Danielle has always wanted to work with animals. She has volunteered at multiple horse farms where her mother was the riding instructor. She has owned all kinds of animals from hamsters to horses. Currently, her and her boyfriend Mike’s family includes two very affectionate guinea pigs named Yoshi and Onyx. Over the past few years it has been her goal to acquire the necessary skills and experience to pursue a career in animal care. The focus of her studies has been in the field of Veterinary Assistance. In the winter of December 2013, Danielle completed a veterinary assisting course at Tunxis Community college. After completing the course she worked as a dog bather and grooming assistant, as well as a dog daycare attendant. She is very happy to be a part of our veterinary team!
