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. 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 "Echo".



Kelly became a boarding assistant at NAH in November of 2012. After graduating from Portsmouth High School in 2011, she began searching for a job that would give her experience in the animal care field. Kelly is interested in becoming a certified veterinary technician, which made Newport Animal Hospital a great fit! She loves working with animals everyday and is looking to pursue a degree in animal sciences. Kelly also loves horses and is an experienced rider. She grew up in Portsmouth RI with many pets over the years, (including two Labrador Retrievers named Genny and Dakota) and is currently the proud mom of two cats, Manson and Lily, and a hamster named Caesar. 



Brianna became an boarding assistant in August 2013. She will be graduating from the University of Rhode Island in 2014 with a degree in Animal/Pre-Veterinary Science.  She grew up in Cranston, R.I. and has always had at least 4 dogs in her house at all times! 
She loves spending time at the beach and going on trips outdoors with friends. Brianna currently has 3 lovable Labradors at home named Riley, Harmony, and Charlie. She also loves spending time playing with all of the boarding pets and aspires to become a
certified veterinary technician!
