Our Careteam

Nina
Assistant Manager, Receptionist
Nina grew up in Havre de Grace, Maryland with a house full of pets. She can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to improve the lives of all the animals she possibly could. What better way to do just that, Nina thought, than by working in the world of professional animal medicine? Her dream hasn’t wavered, and she’s now a proud member of the Animal Medical Center of Bel Air family!

Nina launched her veterinary journey when she signed on as a receptionist at another animal hospital, learning hands-on as she went along. She joined the Animal Medical Center of Bel Air team in November of 2016, and now serves as the hospital’s Assistant Manager! Nina has a particular passion for greeting the clinic’s boarding pets every morning, and she also loves the scientific aspect of her work. Her favorite part of the job, though, is getting to see firsthand the incredible bonds between the area’s pet owners and their animal companions.

When she has free time away from work, Nina can be found relaxing with friends and family or enjoying outdoor activities with her dog, Diamond. Diamond is a young pit bull and especially loves going for drives with the windows down, romping around with other dogs, and going for long walks.
Lynne
Receptionist
Lynne grew up as part of a large family in Baltimore, where dogs and cats were a part of life from day one. She’s had a passion for pet care ever since her earliest days! For Lynne, nothing beats getting to help animals and their owners as a member of the Animal Medical Center of Bel Air’s front-desk team.

Lynne began her journey in animal medicine by signing up for Veterinary Assistant courses at Harford Community College. During the program, she interned right here at the Animal Medical Center of Bel Air to gain crucial hands-on experience in the field of veterinary care. After graduating in the spring of 2012, Lynne was happy to sign on here at the clinic as a full-time staff member. She’s been here ever since!

Lynne has been married for more than 20 years and is a proud mother to two teenage sons. She and her family share their home with three cats: Gracie, Pebbles, and Nacho.
Carlie
Veterinary Assistant, Receptionist
Carlie is a pet owner herself. That means she understands exactly how important the companions of Bel Air are to the area’s loving pet owners––Carlie makes it her mission every day to treat each and every hospital visitor as if they were her very own!

A native of Abingdon, Carlie enrolled in Harford Community College’s Veterinary Assistant program to earn her certifications, completing two internships during her studies. She signed on with the Animal Medical Center of Bel Air team in March of 2017, and now helps the area’s pets and animal owners on a daily basis as a Veterinary Assistant and Receptionist.

In her time away from the office, Carlie can be found spending quality time with her mother and her own pets at home. She has two cats––Stella, whose favorite pastime is begging for food, and Frank, the cuddle-bug of the group––as well as a toy poodle named Bentley that sticks to Carlie’s mother like glue.
Gigi
Veterinary Assistant
Gigi’s stepfather frequently brought home sick, injured, or nursing animals during Gigi’s childhood, and she found a true joy in helping those creatures feel better. Her early experiences made a permanent impression that would affect Gigi for the rest of her life––as fate would have it, she wound up caring for pets as a veterinary professional! She’s proud to serve as a Veterinary Assistant here at the Animal Medical Center of Bel Air.

Gigi was born in Aberdeen and raised in Havre de Grace. Her first foray into the animal-care world came when she secured a job in a pet store. A few years later, she got her foot in the door at a local animal shelter before signing on as a member of the kennel staff. When the time came to further her career, Gigi decided to dive headfirst into veterinary medicine––she was happy to join the Animal Medical Center of Bel Air family in the summer of 2016 as a Veterinary Assistant.

Diagnostic work is Gigi’s favorite part of her job; for her, nothing beats decoding a set of symptoms to reach a proper diagnosis. Most of all, she loves meeting new pets and their owners on a daily basis.

Much of Gigi’s free time away from work is spent tending to her own lovable pets at home. She and her daughter share their lives with three dogs––Bones, an 80-pound Labrador who thinks he’s a cat; Dodge the affectionate Shepherd; and a work in progress named Floki––as well as two rambunctious cats who go by Bast and Styxx.
Megan
Veterinary Assistant
Megan is fond of science and medicine, and she’s always wanted to do work that she felt passionate about. Thanks to her lifelong love for animals, a career in veterinary medicine simply made perfect sense! Megan is a proud member of the Veterinary Assistant team here at the Animal Medical Center of Bel Air.

Megan is from Havre de Grace, and began her animal-care journey by fostering kittens for the Chesapeake Feline Association and volunteering at the Fountain Green Veterinary Center in the fall of 2016. She knew that she wanted to further her experience and study in the world of pet care, and applied to the veterinary technology program at the Community College of Baltimore County—Megan was accepted in the fall of 2017, and started here at the hospital in May of the following year. She couldn’t be happier to supplement her studies with hands-on pet-care experience!

In her free time between shifts here at the hospital and her collegiate studies, Megan can be found painting, writing, or spending time with family and friends. At home, she lives with two animal companions: Bailey, a mischievous poodle mix who belongs to Megan’s mother; and her own dog, Toto, who has been with Megan since he was a puppy.

      Needed a last minute appointment on a Saturday before a holiday and after calling 8 other places, Animal Medical Center of Bel Air was able to get us in almost immediately! Fantastic care and patience with my skittish, anxious kitty and offered me different options to help with my tight budget. Will definitely be coming back!

      Our dog Panama had a horrible accident and needed emergency surgery. Our regular vet was unavailable so I brought her to Animal Med Center. They got her in right away I expressed to the doctor that my budget was VERY tight and although the surgery was quite expensive I noticed on the bill where he had made some deductions to help me save a little. Also, this same dog has extreme anxiety and with the docs help we finally have her on the right meds and her quality of life has improved. Also, now Panama LOVES going to the vet That speaks volumes in itself!
