Erin – Hospital Manager

I have been in the Veterinary Field since 1998. I was born and raised in Kingston, Ontario Canada. I have been at Newmans now for several years. I love helping our team of Doctors and Staff. They are all very compassionate people with the biggest hearts. It is the best group of people I have ever worked with. I have a son Cooper and 5 fur babies to keep me busy!

Stephanie – Assistant Manager

I have been in the Veterinary Field for about 6 years. I spent most of my life in Upstate New York and have been in Florida for the last 14 years. I live with my wonderful husband and my beautiful dogs, Riley, Kyoto, Kit, and Kasse and my two cats McLovin and Crush. I have a passion for animals but have a soft spot for special needs furbabies. I have been at Newman’s for about 2 years and it has been one of the best experiences of my life. Doctors and staff are extremely passionate and care about our patients and clients. What I love about Newmans the most is that our clients and their furbabies become part of our family.
