Boarding Manager & Adoption Coordinator
Dave started his career at Newport Animal Hospital in October
of 2008. After graduating from the University of Rhode Island with degrees in biology and animal science, Dave ended up here at NAH working as a veterinary technician. While he excelled in the position, Dave found he enjoyed working with the pets in our boarding facility most of all. He earned a promotion to boarding manager in the summer of 2012 and does an amazing job keeping our boarders happy and healthy! Dave is also NAH's Adoption
Coordinator. He organizes all adoptions that take place through NAH, and
oversees the care that each "adoptee" receives during their time with
us. When he is not devoting his attention to our boarders and adoptees, Dave is spoiling his two cats,
"Tookie" and "Matsi", and his Border Collie mix
