Cheyenne, LVT

Licensed Veterinary Technician

Cheyenne obtained her LVT license in 2015 and joined our team in the middle of a global pandemic. She is our silver lining to 2020 for sure! Cheyenne’s favorite thing in veterinary medicine is surgery and is partial to the small breed pups. She has 3 children including a set of twins and dogs and cats at home. When asked what she likes to do in her free time, she responded with “What free time??” For hobbies, we will just put “pet healing,” and “child-wrangling”…

In her free time, you can find Abby reading a book by the pool, swimming in the lake, or on the golf course with her friends.


Cooper and Amber

Client Relations Specialists

Cooper and Amber are our resident office cats. Cooper came to us via Dr. LaMora, who found him at 8 weeks old nesting in her chicken coop at home (the chickens were NOT appreciative!). He can be found hanging out at the front desk greeting clients, eating, or lounging around in his pet bed next to Dr. LaMora’s computer.

Amber came from a local rescue group to keep Cooper company. She can usually be found in Dr. Quirk’s lap while the doctor is working on the computer.

Jackie joined BVH this past September ’20 after working in the catering industry for many years, in addition to the human medicine field most recently.

Veterinary Technology degree through Penn Foster College. Since starting, Jackie has had an incredibly rewarding experience and is very grateful for her venture thus far.
