Beth is an incredibly dedicated veterinary technician and surgical/dental nurse here at Wissahickon Creek. No matter what it means, Beth always goes the extra mile to help animals in need and support her co-workers to do the same. Beth is there for everyone’s pets just as much as she is for her own, Iris, Xena, Jiggy, and Faunt who, along with her kids, she loves to spend time playing with on her time off.
Theresa is a veterinary technician and surgical nurse who we welcomed back to our family in 2017 after she spent a few years broadening her knowledge in animal care. She is currently taking courses to become a dental nurse so that she can help even more pets. Theresa loves animals of all shapes and sizes but if you have a pug, they should expect a ‘boop’ on the snoot when they come to visit her. Theresa has four pets of her own that she named following a theme (which you can probably guess), Bella, Gordita, Churro, and Diablo.
Bri is a veterinary technician and surgical nurse who has been with us since 2018. She is currently pursuing her DVM at Long Island University.

Outside of school and work, Bri’s high energy pup, Zuri, keeps life entertaining and full of surprises.
Karen is one of our most seasoned assistants having been a dedicated member of our team since the summer of 2006. If your pet is a black cat, we can almost guarantee Karen will be a part of your appointment. Though, if you can’t find her at the hospital, she has likely escaped to Florida or is at home hanging out with her four black cats, Cleo, Pierre, Fin, and Sophia.
Kelly has been a veterinary assistant with Wissahickon Creek since 2019. She has a super soft spot for the grumpiest looking kitties and fluffiest of dogs. On her days off, you can find Kelly sharing a coffee and pup cups with her two twin sidekicks, Bruno and Sally.

She is a huge advocate for dogs in need of a helping hand, especially largely misunderstood breeds like Boerboels. Ashley’s new cat Pickles keeps her busy with all of her shenanigans at home, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Cheeto will make sure all the nurses take a break from surgery to give him all the treats!
Porter maintains the Wissahickon Creek Facebook and email. He is one of the most creative social media guru's around but does require the finest dog treats imported from Australia.

Hades and Iris are perhaps the friendliest debt collectors and are easily paid in chicken nuggets & hugs. If you have any questions about an outstanding bill, make sure you have a treat or two.
