Teresa, Supervisor, Veterinary Assistant

Teresa was born and raised in upstate New York. She came to RI to attend Johnson & Wales University, graduating in 2014. After graduation, Teresa went on to become a sports medicine technician for a local equine practice. Eventually she moved on to Tufts University’s Cummings Veterinary Medical Center. At Tufts she worked as a large animal technician providing emergency service and care to critical patients, teaching veterinary students, and working closely with Internal Medicine, General Surgery, and Sports Medicine clients.

Teresa started her small animal journey at VCA Povar in September 2020 and looks forward to learning more about her patients. When she is not in the office, Teresa spends time with her husband, three daughters, cat, two dogs and horse.
