Our Staff

JoAnne Negola:

Having been twice called back from retirement, JoAnne has liked staying in the background having helped open and managed five veterinary practices. Her position as administrator has allowed her to delight in lots of wonderful cats and dogs, enjoy many interesting and exciting pet owners, and cultivate world-class veterinary teams. Still, she's just as happy at home enjoying family and planning entertainment (such as tea parties) for friends.
