Hi, I’m Therese and I started at Companion in February 2023. I have been a vet assistant for 12 years. I have experience and have worked with all sorts of animals, but I have a sweet spot for cats. I took a break from veterinary medicine and went to work on the lab side of animal medicine. I learned all sorts of new things and even got to work with Monkeys!! It was a great experience, however I missed being a vet assistant too much and can’t imagine doing anything else.

I currently have 3 cats, 1 dog, and 3 corn snakes. Abbie is a Torbie, Tonks is a grey and white Tabby, and Winry is a Munchkin Mix. Cuddles is my dog who happens to be a retired research Beagle. I got her when I was working in the lab animal field and I am currently working with her to become a therapy dog. In my free time I like to play video games, crafting, outdoor activities, and volunteering with my therapy animal group that is in Barrington. I look forward to meeting you and your pets at Companion Animal Hospital.
