    Office Manager

    Bio coming soon.

  • Colby Fichtel

    Colby joined our staff after a very brief stint as a volunteer in 2005. We needed him in a hurry and he did an outstanding job, which is consistent with his work here ever since. There are many titles besides 'Mr. Reliable' that we could give Colby, but the one that stands out would have to be the 'mother-hen' of the patients at the clinic. He devotes an inordinate amount of time tending to their needs both physically and emotionally. Patients, clients and staff are fortunate he is here for he is always willing to lend a helping hand.

  • Brittney Appleyard

    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. Animals are very comfortable with her as she is with them. She has become a very welcome part of our team. Her primary role here is as a veterinary technician, however she graciously helps as a receptionist when needed.

  • Rachel Crittendon

    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 is evident by watching the actions of Flipper, our resident cat, who practically leaps in her arms to be loved when she arrives.

  • Meghan Aucoin
    Housekeeping Supervisor

    Added to our staff in November 2010, Meghan is indispensible. She has a keen eye for detail and a skill for organizing and removing clutter that tends to build with a mind of its own. Pets recognize her as an animal lover and are very comfortable around her. She can often be heard talking to the boarders and it almost sounds as if they are talking back. Always willing to give a helping hand when needed, Meghan is very much appreciated by all the staff.
