Laurie, Hospital Manager
After 20+ years in the retail business, Laurie took a step back after the pandemic, and opted for a job that afforded better work/life balance. As Practice Manager, she loves to meet our patients with “Greets and Treats”. With her 2 grown children both living out of state, Laurie spends her time off cooking for family and friends, reading, and taking weekend motorcycle rides with her husband.
Ilah, Office Manager
Ilah is a Staten Island NY native but has lived in New Jersey for many years now. Before pursuing her dream of working in the veterinary field, Ilah worked on Wall Street in the bond industry for 10 years. Once joining the field in 2002, Ilah worked her way up from a receptionist to ultimately Hospital Administrator over a 20 year span. Ilah had then left the field for close to 2 years before it once again called to her, bringing her to CAH! Ilah is an animal lover but has a particular fondness for felines. She has a very sassy and special calico named Molly. In her free time Ilah enjoys spending time with her husband Howie , family and friends. She loves music, going to see bands, movies, wine tasting and bird watching. Ilah also has a resin art business.
Amanda, Veterinary Technician
Amanda has worked in the veterinary field for over 15 years, joining the staff at Colonial in February of 2022. Amanda loves to read, and spends her time off with her husband and her pets, 2 dogs and 2 cats.
Alaina, Hospital Administrator/Technician
Alaina is an avid animal lover who owns many of her own pets, including a miniature pig, Omelette! Having grown up in a family that owned a restaurant/bar, Alaina saw first hand what it meant to rescue animals, as her father would feed the local stray cats, and find homes for the kittens. She continued the tradition, and in 2008 started a 5013c non-profit animal rescue called Cuddly Creatures Inc. Through her work there, she built close relationships with area veterinarians, and was eventually asked to work as a surgical assistant/technician, and grew into the role of practice manager. Alaina took a break from the veterinary field during the pandemic, working with her partner for his business, but missed it, and made her way back here as a tech, where we are lucky to have her!
Micki, Veterinary Assistant
Micki began her career working with animals as a zookeeper after graduating college. She spent time at both the Jacksonville Zoo, and ZooAtlanta, and then was hired by Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where she spent more than 20 years before moving back to New Jersey with her cat, Kitten. Micki joined the Colonial staff in July of 2022 as a vet assistant.
