Annie began her career in veterinary medicine while finishing her Master’s degree. While in grad school, she worked at the Framingham Animal Hospital as a client liaison. This experience led her to Tufts University School of Veterinary medicine where Annie supervised the non-medical personnel who supported Tufts Foster Hospital and The Hospital for Large Animals. At Tufts, she met her to-be-husband Jeff and after a few years living and working in Middletown, CT they moved to Marblehead and opened the Atlantic Veterinary Hospital. Since its beginning in 1994, the practice has grown to employ approximately 35 people, and provide service to over 6,500 pets and their families. Jeff and Annie’s greatest achievement, however, is their three boys: Will, Cole and Reid.
