Claudia was born and raised in Palisades Park, NJ. She has been working at Englewood Cliffs Veterinary since 1999 first as a Veterinary Assistant and now as the Office Manager. Her duties are wide ranging and she keeps the hospital running smoothly.
She has a true sense of fairness and keeps us all on the straight and narrow.
She knows where everything is no matter how many years have gone by. She has a weakness for chihuahuas.
Sharon is the morning meet and greet person. She handles the insanity of the start of a new day with grace and a smile. She is the one to talk to regarding appointments and she has a direct line to the staff so is able to get almost any question answered. She has some special skills and we call on her to bless the animals when they need a little extra help.
Funny as anything. Wicked sense of humor. Always smiling.
Has a furry cat at home and loves to decorate the office to keep us holiday appropriate. She is our source of holiday hats for photo ops.
Shelley is our evening receptionist and is always quick with a joke. She keeps everyone smiling and helps our clients' pets go home in the evening with care, compassion and the important information they need to know when they get home.
Quick witted and exudes style and panache.
Is an avid tennis player.
Her granddaughter brings her joy and is the best thing in her life.
Evelyn is the cat whisperer in the practice. She has such a calm demeanor and is able to give all the animals a peaceful place to be when she is restraining or caring for them. When we need a little calm in the storm she is the one we turn to.
Too many differnet kinds of animals in her life to list here.
Feeds feral cats down by the river and makes their lives better every day.
Michele has been a member of the practice for multiple years. Her skills run the gamut. She can give surgical patients the closest shave with out damaging the skin and she is always ready to jump in and lend a hand. She has some truly great skills and we rely on those daily.
She is the best with handling our exotics. She is so gentle and confident with the smallest of our pets.
She has had a rabbit as her own personal pet.
Brittany is another new team member. She has multiple rescue rabbits. She looks forward to getting to know our clients and their animal family members. Please help us in welcoming her.
Rabbits are her passion and she brings that to her job.
Winx is our one-eyed big cat. He is always on a perpetual diet and spends his free time figuring out how to get more food. When there is no food available he chews on plastic medical equipment. We love the big goof anyway.
Lost his eye as a baby kitten.
Will always be a fat cat no matter what we do.
Mouse is the youngest of the herd that we have. He is madly in love with Michele and on days she is not around he pines away for her. He has one bad habit.....he tears coats and bags just for the fun of it and sometimes the feathers inside them. His nemesis is Blue our hospital bird.
Scared of his own shadow.
He is a true hunter. It is in his DNA.
Blue was found in the street one day and came to stay. He screams like a banshee when we trim his wings and nails but other than that he sings and talks and blows kisses at all of us. His cage is a castle and he has some friends that come and board with us periodically.
Loses tail feathers to Mouse every now and again.
His secret love is a bird named Poncho that boards with us when her parents are away.
