Ilah, Hospital 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 and a sweet ginger girl named Penny. 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.








Jamie, Lead Veterinary Technician

Jamie is our lead veterinary technician. She has been working in the veterinary field for almost 10 years, and completed her Veterinary Technician degree in 2023. In her off time, she loves hanging out with her pibbles Zeke and Ziggy, and her cat, Zazu.












Amanda, Veterinary Assistant

Amanda comes from a family of animal lovers and grew up right down the road in Freehold NJ. She has worked in the veterinary field for 16 years and loves working at Colonial. Amanda’s favorite parts of her job are answering questions from pet owners, taking care of patients (she has a soft spot for grumpy and feral cats), and spending her work days with great coworkers. Outside of work Amanda enjoys hiking with her dogs Cricket and Roach, and reading a good book with her cats Quasi and Gemma Mae.







Carly, Veterinary Assistant

Carly has been working with animals for 7 years, and specifically veterinary medicine for 3 years. When not working at Colonial, Carly is studying to become a registered nurse, and has a special interest in geriatric care. She also loves snowboarding, and hiking or riding her bike with her adventurous German Shepherds, Rango and Axle.







Alaina, Veterinary Assistant

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.



Brianna, Veterinary Assistant

Brianna grew up in Long Branch, NJ and has been in the vet field for 2 years. She always loved animals growing up, and was inspired to get into the field because of her childhood beagle mix, Bela. Now she has a pittie mix named Princess. Her favorite thing about working at CAH is being around people who are supportive and kind. “There’s a great work environment here and I love learning from all of my co-workers.” Outside of work, she loves spending time with her family and exploring new places.



Barbara, Lead Client Services Representative

Barbara was born and raised in New Jersey, and has worked in veterinary medicine for several years. She loves going to concerts, hanging out with friends, and her guinea pigs Curious and Finnley.










Amelia, Client Services Representative

Amelia grew up in Monmouth County and spent most of her childhood riding horses right down the road from our hospital. She worked as a zookeeper in California for several years, and started working at Colonial Animal Hospital after moving back to NJ. Amelia’s favorite parts of her job are working on the hospital’s social media pages and helping nervous clients feel comfortable, allowing us to care for their pets. In her free time Amelia enjoys volunteering at Bluemont Equine Sanctuary in Colts Neck, going fishing, and raising foster kittens with the help of her cat Finnegan.
