DebraDebra - Receptionist

As our receptionist, Debra is often first to meet and greet pets and pet owners as they enter Attleboro Veterinary Clinic. She grew up in small-town Vermont and brings that down-to-earth style to our clinic. Her friendly and welcoming personality helps our clients feel comfortable and puts their pets at ease. Debra’s responsibilities include checking clients in and out of the clinic, answering phone calls, processing invoices, completing chart information, and helping with pet appointments. Debra holds two bachelor’s degrees, one in animal science and the other in English, and she joined our staff in August 2004.

The Family atmosphere at Attleboro Veterinary Clinic creates an environment where her “co-workers feel more like siblings,” Debra says. Her favorite part of the job is when she gets time to play with the pets in the waiting room. “I love when I have time to talk to the clients and pet our patients while they wait for their appointments, she said. “Our clients feel like family to me. Attleboro Veterinary Clinic allows every staff member a chance to interact with the animals – even the receptionists!” Debra has had to say goodbye to four of her beloved pets since working at Attleboro Veterinary Clinic. She will always have animals in her home.

Her current furry family members are a cat named George and two dogs, Connor and Dr. Pepper. When not at the clinic, she enjoys spending time with these furry friends and her human family, too. She likes to read, walk, swim, and watch TV and movies. She and her family frequently travel to Vermont to visit relatives, and predictably, her pets love to go along for the ride.

StevenSteven - Veterinary Technician

Though Steven was always an avid animal lover, he actually expected to become a carpenter or construction worker! His dad taught him everything from laying tile to installing plumbing fixtures, basically everything related to home improvement. Then, several years ago, a friend told him about a job opportunity working with laboratory animals at Boston University and he was hooked. Since then, Steven has worked with a variety of species ranging from mice to primates, guinea pigs to ferrets. For five years prior to joining our practice, Steve worked as a veterinary technician in oncology at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston, helping care for pets with cancer.

Steven has been with us since January 2012. We value his technical skills such as an expertise in placing IVs, and his upbeat attitude and friendly teasing keeps the team loose. His kindness to all the pets and their owners always shows through. An added bonus is that he has become the "Mr. Fix It" around our clinic and is eager to take on many side projects and repairs, so maybe he is achieving both of his career dreams after all!

He lives (and does plenty of carpentry!) with his wife and French Bulldog, "Leroy", in their new home.
