Kelly

Kelly

Receptionist

Kelly has always considered herself a people person, and she adores spending time around animals. What better place to work, she thought, than in an animal clinic? She’s been serving the pet owners of the area as one of the Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono’s veterinary receptionists for nine years.

Kelly is a native of the Poconos and first started working here at the clinic shortly after she’d had her son. Her favorite part of every day is meeting the community’s pet lovers, and she strives to do everything in her power to help pets and their owners feel comfortable. Kelly never passes up the opportunity to hear a fun pet story!

Kelly and her husband, Bill, have four children—Ashlee, Karissa, Kayla, and Zachary—as well as an elderly cat named Roni and a dog named Fergie. As a family, they enjoy spending time outdoors, visiting amusement parks, watching movies, and playing games together. Kelly is also a baseball coach for the local six- to eight-year-old division, and finds that she learns just as much from her team as they do from her!

Marina

Marina

Veterinary Assistant

Marina can’t remember a time when she didn’t enjoy the company of animals. She always loved being outdoors in nature and spending time around the earth’s creatures, and she knew that she wanted to learn more in order to make a difference in the lives of all of the animals she possibly could. For Marina, working in the world of veterinary just made perfect sense!

Marina was born in Pinsk, Belarus, and moved to the United States with her family when she was only three years old. She lived in Maryland until 2018, when she was married and moved to Pennsylvania. It wasn’t long before she had discovered an opening here at the Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono—Marina joined the hospital team in May of 2020 and has been caring for the area’s pets and animal parents ever since.

Around the clinic, Marina loves learning new things on a daily basis, seeing the positive results of dental cleaning procedures, and getting to interact with a variety of animal personalities. No two days are ever quite the same, and she loves the way her work keeps her on her toes!

Away from work, Marina loves to play the piano and guitar, sing, spend time outdoors going hiking, camping, kayaking, swimming, and star-gazing, and dabbling in photography and graphic design. She and her husband, Fernando, are also part of a K9 Search and Rescue team with their dogs. They have two canine companions—Aaley the Border Collie and a Belgian Malanois named Lexi—as well as a sweet and obedient cat who goes by Tiger.

Alexandra

Alexandra

Animal Caretaker

Alex’s family always kept pets while she was growing up. Those early experiences caring for animals made a permanent impact, and Alex always knew she would love to work with pets professionally. When the opportunity arose for her to serve in a veterinary setting, she jumped at her chance! Alex is a proud member of the Animal Caretaker team here at the Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono.

Alex was born in Newton, New Jersey but was raised in Pennsylvania and has lived in the Poconos for more than a decade. She was thrilled to join the hospital family in December of 2020 and launch her career in the world of veterinary medicine—Alex hasn’t looked back since. She loves to learn new things on a daily basis, and her favorite part of her job is being able to serve as a comforting presence for the hospital’s animal visitors, as well as their human parents.

Most of Alex’s free time outside of work is spent with her family. She and her partner, Kyle, have two wonderful children: their daughter, Kylee, and their son, Kody. Together, they love to enjoy the great outdoors when the weather is nice, and Alex’s kids are already huge animal-lovers just like their mother. The family shares their home with one pet: a feisty Desert Iguana named Jar Jar Binks.

Joshua

Joshua

Receptionist

Josh used to work in the human medical field, and while he enjoyed his job, he knew it wasn’t quite the right fit. After he started working in a kennel setting a short time later, something clicked. He knew it was the perfect way for him to care for people and pets at the same time! Josh has been a member of the veterinary profession ever since, and he’s now a proud member of the Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono’s front-desk team.

Josh is from southern New Jersey, where he first began working as a Medical Assistant. After a short stint working in a nursing home, he moved to Pennsylvania with his girlfriend. It wasn’t long before he’d signed on at the kennel facility where his girlfriend worked—Josh knew right away he’d found his calling. In January of 2021, he joined the Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono family, and the rest is history!

Around the clinic, Josh enjoys seeing the incredible variety of feathered, furry, and scaled companions that visit the hospital. He loves to communicate both with pet owners and his fellow staff members. Of course, getting to meet adorable pets is always a fun bonus, too!

When he’s not at work, Josh likes reading, gaming, and spending time with his girlfriend, Kaylah. They hope to adopt an animal companion in the near future.
