Management Staff

Hospital Manager

Hi!  My name is Debbie. I am the Hospital Manager at St Charles Animal Hospital. I am mom to 3 Pomeranian's, 1 Chihuahua and 1 Kitty. I have been here at St Charles Animal Hospital for 10 years, and I can say, without a doubt, we do treat your pet's like family. We look forward to meeting you and your fur-babies. We strive to make you and your pet's visit a pleasant one. 

Please stop by, have a cup of coffee or tea and meet us! I promise you won't be disappointed! 



Head Technician  

My name is Angela, I have a bachelors degree in Marine science and biology. I have been working in the veterinary field since January of 2011. In this time I have worked many positions in a veterinary hospital. I started out working client service and quickly became trained as a technician and shortly after that I was trained as a surgical technician. I have 2 fur babies of my own, Tiger who was a rescued feral cat that I have had since he was estimated at 5 weeks old, and DaVinci my black lab. I am so grateful for the opportunities I have received while working at SCAH. I look forward to working with our doctors and picking their brains every day for more knowledge to fill my own and to continue to progress and perfect my skills as a technician. I have always thought that there is something very challenging about taking care of patients that cannot verbally express hurt or distress, but that is why I love my job and it is something I take pride in. Everyday as a technician is challenging and rewarding at the same time, and I would not change it for the world!


  Support Staff  


Yes, I wear two "hats"!  I used to be the Head Receptionist, but in 2015 Dr. Neuman promoted me to Hospital Manager.  As Hospital Manager, I am responsible for all the workings of the hospital.





Training Coordinator

I am honored and happy to be a technician and the Training Coordinator at St. Charles Animal Hospital.  I grew up having a passion for animals and could not imagine my life without them.  I have been a vet tech for over 12 years.  In September, 2005, I became a part of the St. Charles Animal Hospital family and have enjoyed every minute of it.  The doctors here have helped me gain so much knowledge, and I am continuing to learn every day.

I am here to give your pet love, attention, and the care that it needs and deserves.  I am also here to give you, the owner, the knowledge you need to give your pet the best care possible.  Please let me know if I can do anything to help you! 


Tracy has been with St Charles Animal Hospital for thirteen years now.  She is very passionate about helping and doing what is best for her patients.  She likes to provide her clients with appropriate knowledge and the time they deserve.  She is always here to address any questions or concerns that her clients may have.  Tracy always provides the clients she sees with the utmost care and understanding.  Tracy understands the love her clients have for their fur babies because she has two dogs of her own and always has a house full of animals.


     My vet career started in 1997 as a kennel assistant.  I attended Harcum College in Pennsylvania from 1998-2001 where I graduated with an Associates Degree in Science.  I completed an internship at the University of Pennsylvania Small Animal Hospital in Philadelphia, as well as a large animal at the New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, PA.  After graduation, I went to work for a surgical practice and prepared for my  national boards exam (VTNE).  In 2001, I became a Registered Veterinary Technician. 
     After 20 years in the profession my passion continues to grow.  I have had the privilege of caring for many pets from young and healthy, to critically ill, to geriatric.  I am always learning something new.  I especially love to educate clients on having new puppies/kittens, nutrition, and behavior.
     My furry family consists of a 5 year old Pit Bull named Abby, and a 13 year old cat named Barnaby.  I have been at St. Charles for 2 years now and I look forward to meeting you and helping your pet with everything they need for the best possible care!


Ever since I can remember, I have always known that I was meant to work with animals. I have been a vet tech for 4 years and I couldn't imagine doing anything else.  Everyday is a new learning experience.      I am honored to be part of the team at St. Charles Animal Hospital and always strive to provide you and your pets the best care possible!

Prior to St. Charles, I spent several years working at an animal hospital that also did rescue work, so rescue is still very close to my heart.  At any given time, you may find me with a litter of foster kittens!  In my spare time, I also enjoy cheering on the Washington Capitals, ice skating, swimming, and spending time with my own cats and the "heartbeat at my feet", my dog, Serenity.  


Ever since I was a small child, I have dreamed of working with animals.  My love for all creatures lead me to pursue a bachelor's degree in wildlife conservation and management.  While taking a breath between my bachelor's and master's degree, I decided to keep with my love of animals and was lucky enough to be able to join the fantastic staff here at St. Charles Animal Hospital.  When I am not studying for grad school entrance exams, I enjoy spending time with my two dogs, three rabbits, and four cats.  I look forward to seeing and caring for everyone's fur kids as if they were my own!

I am very new to the St. Charles Animal Hospital family and I can already say that I have never been so happy to work with such a devoted, friendly, and caring team of individuals. The entire staff truly makes the care and well being of every furry patient that comes in their highest priority.  This is a standard that I also promise to provide for our clients and their pets.  St. Charles has provided the opportunity for me to learn many new things everyday and to meet so many wonderful pets and their families!
I have grown up around many animals and have worked with them for many years. I have been in the veterinary field as a technician for 2 years.  Animals have always been a huge part of my life and I have always known that I wanted a career caring for them.  Achieving that goal in my life has been amazing!  Outside of work I am blessed to share my home with many creatures great and small, including dogs, cats, snakes, lizards, fish, chinchillas, degus, axolotls, and a hedgehog.  My non-animal related interests include spending time with my significant other, and my awesome friends, watching Dr Who, and Marvel superhero movies/tv shows, and arts and crafts.
