Boarding Staff

Kelly – Boarding Manager

Kelly started her career at NAH as a boarding assistant in 2012. While she excelled in her position, Kelly wanted the opportunity to expand her skills. She became a Veterinary Technician in 2014, and ultimately took her medical knowledge and expertise back to our boarding facility, accepting the position of Boarding Manager in 2016. Kelly truly enjoys working with animals every day– caring for our patients during their boarding stays like they are her very own. Kelly also loves horses, and spent her childhood taking lessons at a local stable, furthering her passion for animals. She grew up in Portsmouth, RI with many pets over the years, and is now a proud mom to two cats, Smokey and Nina.

Regan moved to Rhode Island in 2016 with her family who are currently stationed at the naval war college in Newport. Regan began her position at our boarding facility soon after and continues to excel. Regan plans to study Microbiology at URI then is in hopes to attend vet school in Alabama. When she is not working, she spends her time reading, traveling and baking. She also loves spending time with her Dachshund, Nemo, her cat, Remy and her three guinea pigs, Jojo, Luna, and Callisto.

Mattea – Boarding Assistant

Mattea began her position at the boarding facility in 2018 and has been loving it ever since! Mattea has been surrounded by animals almost her entire life, from volunteering at shelters to owning and caring for many different pets of her own. Her love for animals inspired her to study Animal Science at URI and will be graduating in May 2019. She plans to continue at NAH after graduation and looks forward to learning more about animal care. When she is not working, Mattea enjoys traveling, painting, and spending time with her friends and family. She lives in Newport with her cat, Rory, and two guinea pigs, Hodor and Benji.
