Dr. Katie and Dr. Ann have a dream team of great staff members here at our hospital who contribute to patient and client care alike. They have been hired not only because they are skilled in their arenas and share our philosophy of compassionate patient care but because they have good hearts and sincere interest in our field. Let us introduce them to you…
Thea began her career in the veterinary field in April of 2008 as a part-time kennel and front desk assistant for Pine Point. In May of 2009 she came on board full time as a receptionist while occasionally assisting in the treatment area. Before coming to Pine Point, Thea earned her Associates degree in Early Childhood education and worked in the Early Childhood Education field for more than 20 years. While fostering cats and kittens for the Animal Refuge League she realized she enjoyed working with animals and moved to Pine Point as soon as was possible. Rumor has it she has been having fun ever since. When not at work, Thea enjoys reading (made best when her cat snuggles with her) and watching movies.
Lisa started her career in veterinary medicine here at Pine Point Animal Hospital in 2006 after having worked in the child care field for 22 years. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Lisa is very excited about expanding her career to include her first love – animals. Lisa’s interest in veterinary medicine was sparked by her work with the Animal Refuge League in Westbrook. It was in this role that Lisa met Drs. Ann and Katie. Her fostering provided care for the feline population for 5½ years. Lisa’s house is filled with not only her own pets, but also with various cats and dogs that she is frequently “sitting” for friends and family. When she is not at work or learning something new online, Lisa has been known to enjoy reading a good book (or twenty), watching an entertaining movie, or knitting some new cat toy for her cats to enjoy.

She spends her spare time with her fiancé and son, and barnyard of animals including two cats, a rabbit, and a Serama chicken. Stephanie joined Pine Point Animal Hospital in February of 2018, and can’t wait to work with all of you!
