After graduating high school in 1975, Suzanne attended the University of Maine to study Animal Science and Agribusiness. She moved to the Mid-Hudson Valley area in 1978 and eventually came to work as a receptionist and veterinary assistant to Dr. Michael Barra at the Orange Community Pet Hospital in 1987. When we made the move to the current building in 1993, Suzanne was installed as the manager of the Pet Nutrition Center at Ani-Mall Pet Hospital.

Twenty-three years as a veterinary employee, Suzanne is still enthusiastic about the many challenges her job presents. She has her own farm in Ulster County, where she enjoys riding her horses, caring for her dogs, cat and chinchillas, and especially raising her large hobby flock of poultry. Suzanne is proud of our dedicated staff and of the high-quality level of medicine our hospital practices.
