Hi! My name is Samantha. I was born in Barrington, Illinois, but grew up in Jupiter, Florida. I've been a vet tech for almost 3 years now. I am the manager of Gilmer Road Animal Hospital. I'm also a part time student at McHenry County College to get my associates in science, then I plan to transfer to Vet school! I plan to have my DVM by 2021!


Hello! My name is Danielle and I have been a vet tech for over two years. It is the most amazing job I have ever had! I am currently attending the College of Lake County to earn my associates degree and afterwards I plan to attend veterinary school. I grew up in the Chicago area and have lived in Lindenhurst for the past 8 years. I do not have any fur babies of my own (not my choice), but I do love to dog sit! Giraffes are my all-time favorite animal.


Tiffany has been a veterinary technician for 6 years.  Born and raised in Mchenry,  Tiffany currently resides in Island Lake with her husband and two daughters. Coming to work makes her excited to help pets and their owners.  With a dog and cat of her own, she understands the love and compassion that pets bring into our lives.  Outside of work she loves to be outdoors running, hiking, and walking with her daughters. 


Snickers was our house cat when we opened our doors in August 2016. She enjoyed lounging in the sun, taking long cat naps, and helping to monitor our patients. Snickers crossed the rainbow bridge in February 2018 due to squamous cell carcinoma. She is dearly missed.

Murray is our newest resident cat. He arrived in summer 2017. Murray's favorite hobbies include sleeping in boxes, exploring the hospital, and antagonizing Dr. Brar's French Bulldog.
