We love getting to know you and your pet! It is important to us that we form a long lasting bond with all of our clients and patients, and we would love for you to meet our staff members here at Locust Valley Veterinary Clinic.
Joan is our licensed veterinary technician here at Locust Valley Veterinary Clinic. Joan has been in the veterinary field for over 11 years and has enjoyed every minute of it. Joan is currently engaged to be married to a wonderful man, and together they have two amazing cats.
One of the cats name is Nibbler and the other is Arya, and yes that is from the Game of Thrones. Arya is the new addition to their family and she is very playful, but they love them both! She is ecstatic to be part of this team and looking forward to treating the patients.
Ann has always loved animals. Her mother told her when she was married she could have as many pets as she wanted, so when she married she had 5 cats and 2 dogs. Ann started working for Dr. Gross at East Meadow Animal Hospital in 1972 and has been with him since, working at Locust Valley Vet since it opened in 2003.
She also worked for the Nassau Animal Emergency Clinic for 6 years until it closed. Ann loves her job and what she does. She currently has 3 dogs, Forest a lab mix, Peanut a Rat Terrier mix and Callie an Australian Shepherd who is deaf.
Always an avid animal lover, Tova grew up with cats and dogs at home, and often spent childhood weekends volunteering on farms to work with goats, cows and chickens. She also spent many years riding horses. Tova is catmom to Po, her handsome Siamese baby boy. Recently relocating to Long Island from the Hudson Valley, Tova is excited to be joining the Locust Valley team, where she can work with animals and their owners on a daily basis. When not behind the desk, Tova is a certified yoga instructor and a Reiki Master.
