Receptionist

Kristen started working in a veterinary hospital setting in 2008. This is now her 5th year at FMAC, helping us navigate the last 2 years of the pandemic with great skill. She serves the team in a multitude of ways and is a “jack of all trades” at the clinic. Not only does she manage the front desk and scheduling/client liaison issues and most USDA travel issues, but she is also there when the technicians need an extra hand in the back.

She has a fun-loving, great personality and goes above and beyond for our clients and all pets. She has a love and appreciation for all animals, but a special adoration for Dogo Argentinos!

When she’s not working at the helm at FMAC, she likes to spend time with her 3 children, husband, and multiple pets!

Tiffany has been involved in veterinary medicine since 2013 and absolutely loves the field. Since the age of 4, she has always dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. She was able to gain her experience as a veterinary technician working at multiple practices over the years and wouldn’t have it any other way. She is in the process of completing her licensing requirements while starting her 4th year at FMAC as a dedicated technician and assistant with Dr Cohen. Clients can trust her to give up to date information, attention and special care to their pets while at FMAC for outpatient/ inpatient procedures and surgeries.

She is especially adept at feline restraint and dental procedures!

Outside of her clinic work, she enjoys adventures with her 4 children, her husband and 3 dogs. She definitely has a lot of love to give and this definitely shows with our patients and clients.
