Our Staff


Amy, Certified Veterinary Technician

I was born and raised in Southern New Jersey, and have always had a love for small animals. I graduated from Wilson College with a Bachelor's degree in Veterinary Medical Technology in May 2010,received my certification in July 2010, and started working for A-C Vets in September 2010. I live in Palmyra with my husband, Dereck, our daughter, Lilibeth, and our slew of pets, including 5 cats(Zora, Tegwyn, Calliope, Velcro,& Dexter), 1 dog(Lydia), 2 chinchillas(Aurora & Celeste),a sulcata tortoise(Frank), and more recently a saucy hamster, named Giggles. 



Lindsey, Certified Veterinary Technician, Practice Manager

I grew up in Lebanon county and initially graduated from Millersville University in 2008 with a Marine Biology/Psychology degree.  I was a zookeeper for over five years working with animals from tortoises to sea lions in various zoos in the country (Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Alabama).

I wanted to move back to the area and since there are very few sea lions in this area, I decided to switch gears and change to the veterinary field.  I went back to school with San Juan College to complete my Veterinary Technology degree to become a certified vet tech.  I live in Schaefferstown with my husband (Brandon), sons (Flynn & Arlo) and a small zoo of our own.  We have four dogs, one cat, sulcata tortoises named Barnaby Jones and Max, geckos, snakes, and over a dozen chickens!





Jenna, Certified Veterinary Technician

I was born in Pine Grove, PA but grew up in Jonestown, PA.  I graduated from Northern Lebanon High School in 2015. I then attended college at the Vet Tech Institute in Pittsburgh, graduating in 2017 and passed my boards exam to obtain my license. 

I have two dogs, Koda and Nala and two cats, Maya and Zazu. I have a love for rabbits. I have wanted to be in the veterinary field since I was very young and I enjoy my job every day! My passion is surgery and dentistry. I have a loving husband, Ben and a crazy daughter, Adalin who I love to enjoy family time with. In my free time you can catch me creating some form of craft or artwork. 


Carissa, Certified Veterinary Technician

My name is Carissa, and I am a 2021 YTI Vet Tech graduate, and I became a CVT in April of 2021. I grew up in southern VA, and moved to PA in the beginning of 2019. I travel a lot in my spare time, especially with my boyfriend and our pup, Bronc. I have a strong passion for both small and large animal medicine, and would like to continue my veterinary education in the near future. 



Dianne, Client Service Representative

I was born and raised in the Palmyra area, graduating from Palmyra High School with business and secretarial education.  I have been at A-C Veterinary Associates since 2015.  I enjoy spending time with my two adult children and my four grandchildren.  I also love spending vacation time on the beach...any beach!  I currently have no pets but enjoy everybody else's to the fullest!!!   



Hope, Client Service Representative

I have been a veterinary technician since 1996 with a wide array of veterinary medicine over the years with my passion being surgery.  I have since hung up my tech scrubs and joined the Annville Cleona team in 2021 to focus on patient and customer care.  I have done some fostering in the past and happily failed every time!  I live with my husband, Shannon, and we have four boys, Eathan, Nolan, Landon, and Christopher, two dogs, Reagan and Madison, along with foster fail cats, Dottie and Shep.  In my spare time I enjoy quiet days with family and friends, a good binge worthy series or some retail therapy.

Emily, Veterinary Assistant

Becoming a veterinary technician was my dream job during elementary school. As it tends to happen, though, I drifted from that dream and graduated from Shippensburg University with a degree in computer science. After working in the industry for 5 years, COVID-19 hit and made me re-evaluate my career and passions. I decided to go back to school for what really matters to me. I am currently working towards becoming a certified veterinary technician through the online program with San Juan College. I love the choice I've made and the people I work with! I live in Lebanon with my husband and two cats who sometimes like each other, and my free time is spent with video games, board games, and pottery.


Kayla, Veterinary Assistant

I was born and raised in Lancaster County.  I graduated high school in 2021, and am starting my journey this fall to becoming a certified veterinary technician.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my animals, friends and family.

Hailey, Veterinary Assistant

I have always had a passion for animals and wanting to work with them. During my senior year of high school I worked at a zoo and an ice cream shop. Later, I started shadowing at a veterinary hospital where I got hired starting out as a receptionist. Furthering my career I went into a veterinary technician program at LCCC/NCC in 2019 and graduated in 2021. I recently moved from Lehigh valley to the area to live with my boyfriend and our 2 dogs (Bear and Remington) and our cat (Martini). I enjoy reading, going for walks with the dogs, hunting, and fishing. 



Owen, Veterinary Assistant

I graduated from Palmyra High School in 2022 and will be studying Biology at the University of Arizona.  In my free time I like to be outdoors, playing soccer or snowboarding.  I am planning to pursue a career in the medical field after college and hope to become a doctor, either in human or veterinary medicine.

Mariah, Veterinary Assistant

I grew up in Lebanon county, graduating high school from Palmyra.  I have always had a love for animals and have been working in the veterinary field for the last six years.  I started undergraduate in 2017 at Penn State University as a veterinary and biomedical science major.  I then drifted away from that interest, to then have an interest in pediatric medicine.  After a semester of nursing school I realized that even though I love babies and little kids, my passion is and always will be with animal medicine.  I have three dogs, Hugo, Franklin, and Grigio.  we love to do off season beach trips and walk hiking trails together!


Lori, Certified Veterinary Technician

After 13 years experience in the veterinary field working in various hospitals and specialty and emergency care facilities while traveling up and down the east coast, I have finally planted my roots here in Amish Country to raise my 2.5 year old daughter. We have an 11 year old lady kitty, Lindsey Storm, who was about to be surrendered to a shelter this May. We are active in our church here and I'm thrilled to have found a healthy, encouraging and wonderful home here at A-C Veterinary Associates where I plan to be for the remainder of my career!

Kate, Veterinary Assistant

I have always had a passion for animal safety and welfare since I was young. I have a Master's degree from Bloomsburg University in Speech Language Pathology. My dream of working with animals rekindled 4-5 years ago when I started non profit work with PAWS. I am a crazy cat lady, but have a deep love for all animals. I share my home in Lebanon with my husband Dylan and my "kids" Bodie (pit bull), 4 cats (Taco, Ramen, Pepper and Gnocchi) and 2 parakeets (Pickles and Biscuit). I also have 2-5 fosters at any given time. Hiking, reading, yoga and camping are my jam! Soon I will be working towards becoming a CVT once I find the right program for me.


 Jim, Veterinary Assistant

I came to AC Vets after over 30 years of pastoral ministry.  I decided to follow a life-long dream of working with animals and I have a Veterinary Assistants Certificate from Stratford Career Institute and have studied Veterinary Nursing at Purdue University's College of Veterinary Medicine.  My wife, Lore, and I are celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary in February.  We have a son, Tyler, who lives with his partner, Austin, in Telford, PA; a daughter, Heather, and a grandson, Noah.  Currently we have three dogs in our home: a Pomeranian, Missy; and two Yorkshire Terriers, Bear and Jewel.  After work, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and reading and watching science fiction (especially Doctor Who and Torchwood!).  You can find me on the soccer pitch, as I am a USSF and PIAA soccer referee.  My future plans include completing my Veterinary Nursing degree; owning a small farm filled with Beagles and Welsh Corgis; and seeing my beloved New Orleans Saints win another Super Bowl.

Rachel, Veterinary Assistant

I have been an animal lover as long as I remember and grew up coming to work with my mom and spending hours hanging out at the vet office. I started working here as an internship for my high school and plan to continue working here while go to LVC this year. I have 2 horses (Yankee and Pepper) that I compete with at both local and higher levels. When I am not spending time at the barn I enjoy spending time with my family and friends or camping and traveling.
