Marianne McPhilemy
Hospital Manager
Marianne came to work at VCA Timberlyne in 2015 as a CSR. Marianne came to VCA because of her love of animals. She worked for over 25 years in 911 service in New Jersey. When she moved to NC in 2012 with her husband, Michael, and youngest son, she took a break from emergency services and started working with a non-profit Horse program for disabled children and adults. Marianne wanted to do something different than 911 service so one day a friend told her she should go work for a veterinary hospital because she loved her crazy group of pets so much and that started her work with VCA.
