Our Staff



Katie: Office Manager and Technician

Katie was born and raised right here in Maine. She always had a love for animals as a small child.  It was always a dream of hers to grow up and work with them.  The opportunity finally crossed her path 6 years ago.  Unfortunately,  it happened due to the diagnosis of cancer in her cat Spunky. She was the first kitten (of many) that she had hand raised.

She has been blessed for the past 6 years to have been cross-trained in many areas of veterinary medicine.  She currently resides in Auburn with her daughter, Evelyn, their Boston Terrier, Onyx, and her rescue cats!

Katie's can-do attitude makes her an important team member here at TVWC, whether it involves client relations, computer and inventory updating, or the compassion she shows to our patients.



Bethany: Receptionist

Bethany joined our team in September 2016.  Before this, she worked with shelter pets in the area for just over 2 years.  She has always loved animals since a young age and has had pets of all shapes and sizes.  She is currently living happily in Bowdoin with her husband, rescue dog, Kenna, four rescue cats, a rescue angora rabbit, and 10 ducks!  She spends most of her time outside of work taking care of all her animals - they keep her very busy!.  She plans to expand her small farm in 2017 (including but not limited to bee-keeping).

She graduated from Mt. Ararat in 2013 and is very computer savvy.  She got us started on Instagram shortly after joining the team!  She is in school through San Juan College and hopes to one day become a license vet tech.  We value her great attitude, friendly demeanor and love for our patients.  If you really want to get her excited, ask her about her dog, Kenna, or her ducks!

Amanda: Receptionist

We keep Amanda pretty busy so it's no surprise that we can't get a story out of her.  What we do know: She's a human Mom of two, she's a local girl, and she has a really pretty dog named Sadie.


Samantha: Veterinary Technician in Training

“Sam” is our resident Jersey girl and one of our newest staff members.  She came to Maine in 2009 from her childhood home in New Jersey to pursue her bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology at the University of New England.  While in school, Sam spent several years working with marine mammal rehabilitation where she fell further in love with animals, Maine, and veterinary medicine.  She is currently training to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician through San Juan College’s online program.  Although her career is still in the beginnings, Sam is not unknown to the veterinary field.  She previously worked as a compounding pharmacy technician at PetScripts Pharmacy and as an Animal Care Technician at Coastal Humane Society.  She is still currently active with Marine Mammals of Maine (MMOME), which is a response and rescue group for stranded marine mammals along the coast of Maine.  Sam currently lives in Old Orchard Beach with her fiancé, Julian, chinchilla, Petzl, and rescued Puerto Rican Sato dog, Capa.  In her free time, you can find her rock climbing or out on the beach.  She is looking forward to growing within the Topsham Veterinary Wellness Team, and further into this very rewarding career.
