Our Careteam

Brynne

Office Manager

Brynne grew up in the Lehigh Valley, where she developed a strong connection with animals early on in life. She’s always felt that pets are much more amazing than humans tend to give them credit for! As soon as Brynne began her first job at a local kennel, she was hooked—veterinary medicine was the perfect career choice for her.

After her kennel days, Brynne moved into a Veterinary Assistant position at a local animal hospital. A few years later, she got the itch to learn more; that’s when she signed up for Veterinary Technician school. Brynne became a Certified Veterinary Technician and served in that capacity for a number of years before deciding to take on a new and exciting set of responsibilities. She joined the Animal Hospital of Richboro family in late summer of 2016, where she works as the clinic’s Office Manager.

Here at the hospital, Brynne is particularly fond of placing IV lines—she says that there’s no greater love-hate relationship than the one she has with this procedure! She also likes doting on the adorable puppies and kittens who visit the clinic.

Outside of work, Brynne enjoys adding to her collection of owl trinkets and dabbling in her own art projects. She lives with her boyfriend and their two rescued cats: Prince is scared of his own shadow, while Monkey is the more outgoing of the pair and loves yelling at his owners for more food.
