Joan started her career with Bolton Veterinary Hospital in December 1984. In over twenty-five years, Joan has worked in almost every area of the hospital and she is now our Hospital Manager. Joan says it feels like she and BVH have grown up together and that it is a place of great integrity. Joan loves working with people who feel like family and who all care about the work they do together. Her “first” family consists of her very supportive husband, daughter, six cats, and one dog. All of her pets have been rescued. Joan’s special projects at BVH include the Pet Adoption Program and the Allan Leventhal Memorial Fund. In 2005, Joan spearheaded the first “Adopt-a-Pet Fun Day” which was a huge success. She also enjoys the beach, working with stained glass, gardening, and reading. Joan says she is always in the middle of a book!
