Luz — Certified Veterinary Technician

She has shared her many years of experience helping train new staff members and helping take care of our patients and their owners.

Janet — Veterinary Technician
Janet started work at Linwood Animal Hospital as a veterinary technician in 2007, just shortly after earning her Bachelor's degree in Animal Science, Pre-Veterinary Medicine from UMass Amherst. She is responsible for all of Linwood's ordering and inventory needs.
Because of allergies in her family, Janet cannot have her own dogs or cats, so she gets her "animal fix" at Linwood. If she could have her own dog, she would definitely get a shelter mutt, and wishes more people would start their search for their perfect pet at the many wonderful shelters and rescue organizations.
Kaitlyn — Veterinary Technician
Kaitlyn joined Linwood Animal Hospital as a full time veterinary technician in April 2020. She graduated with a Bachelor's Degree from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL. She loves working with animals especially wildlife. Even though she is allergic to both dogs and cats she doesn’t let that stop her from doing what she loves!
Kaitlyn has her own fur-baby, a beagle named Lucy and when she’s not busy working, she enjoys working out, kayaking and hiking
Thalisson — Receptionist & Technician Assistant
Thalisson joined Linwood Animal Hospital as a full-time veterinary receptionist in March 2020. It wasn’t long before his affinity for animals proved he was a better fit as technician assistant! He began cross training in this position shortly thereafter. A Brazilian native, Thalisson has a degree in biology and is currently enrolled in online classes towards a degree in veterinary technology. He has a deep love for all animals, but his real passion is exotics!
When Thalisson is not working or studying, he spends his free time competing in local volleyball tournaments and hanging out with friends. Thalisson currently does not have any pets of his own, however he aspires to one day own a ferret (or two!)
