  • Dr.
    Linda Hanneman,
    DVM
    Veterinarian

    It all started in a log cabin in the woods...

    Only kidding.  Actually, Dr. Hanneman was born in the suburbs of Chicago, but the other story sounds so much more interesting.

  • Dr.
    Paul Chapin,
    DVM
    Veterinarian

    Dr. Paul Chapin has been employed here at Compassion Veterinary Clinic since January 2022. He and his wife, Shama both worked as veterinarians in Utah for 20 years, until we convinced them to travel to the east coast and work here as well as our newly formed clinic in Worcester.  Dr. Paul has become a very valuable asset to our clinic, not only for his expertise and knowledge, but also for his quick wit and easy going manner with both clients and staff.

  • Debra Cassinelli
    Office Manager

    Debbie came to Compassion veterinary Clinic as a volunteer in 1995 when the staff consisted of 3 people; the Veterinarian and 2 assistants.  Throughout the years, as the clinic has grown, she has worn many hats, and continues to do so.  Some of these roles were born out of necessity (i.e.: appliance/equipment repair, IT), while getting on-the job training to perform roles as a veterinary assistant/technician, receptionist, HR manager, and office manager.  All of these experiences have allowed Debbie to pursue a love of learning, which is never ending and makes working at Compassion Veterinary Clinic so full-filling to her.

    Brittney became a member of our staff in the fall of 2010. Although she came with some experience, we were impressed with how quick she was to prove herself and she did it well. Her thoroughness is an asset and she often surprises us by pointing out certain details we may have overlooked.

  • Lisa S
    Receptionist

    Lisa has worked in the veterinary field for over 20 years.  She started her career in Vancouver, Canada before moving back to Massachusetts in the fall of 2006.  After a stint at a clinic in Natick, we were fortunate to have Lisa join our team in the summer of 2018, where she initially worked as both a technician and receptionist.  She has since moved up to the front desk full time. There she can be found greeting clients, all while fawning over their animals.  She is especially fond of pugs and currently has two of her own.

  • Rachel V
    Technician

    Rachel joined our team during the height of the pandemic in 2020.  Like most veterinary hospitals at this time, we were understaffed and overwhelmed with the increase of new pets/clients, so Rachel was a very welcome addition!  We were quickly impressed and thankful for her remarkable ability to learn the job and help in any way she could.  Her positive attitude and sense of humor put our patients and staff at ease.  When we were about to pull our hair out, she was quick to get a laugh out of all of us with a snarky comment and revealing smile.

  • Rachel C
    Technician / Receptionist

    Rachel started at Compassion when she was in High School as a volunteer and became an official part-time member of our staff in 2011. Her fast learning ability, amiable nature and eagerness to assist helped our decision to hire her and we are sure it was a good one. She has a way with animals which was always evident by watching the actions of Flipper, our resident cat, who would practically leap into her arms to be loved when she arrived.
