Lonni is our office manager who has worked with us since 2005 and started out as a receptionist. She is originally from California with a background in the field of veterinary medicine that started in 1995. In her spare time (which is rare!), she enjoys fishing, reading, bird watching and boating. Her love of animals is shared with her husband and 2 children. When Lonni is not at Bridgeton Animal Hospital working with your furbabies, she is spending time with her dog (Winston), a Bearded Dragon (Aaliyah), a turtle (Leroy) and the newest member of the family, a blue Quaker Parrot (Abner).
"I sincerely love my job. The doctors I work with are amazing and always willing to teach us new things. There isn’t a day that goes by that I feel I haven’t learned something new. My co-workers are my second family. In conversations outside of work, I’m the lucky one who says: ‘I get to go to work!’- Not ‘I have to go to work.’ and for that I am truly thankful.”
Heather started at Bridgeton Animal Hospital when she was 14, volunteering for 2 ½ years during High School. After graduating she went to Sanford Brown College to get her associates in Veterinary Technology. Since then, she has returned home to BAH, working mostly as an assistant for the past 11 years and then being promoted to assistant office manager. Heather is married and has one Maltese, Adyson. When Heather is not at BAH taking great care of our patients you can find her hanging out with her huge busy family, decorating and crafting.
