Darlena, CVT

 It was clear from a young age when I would dress up our cat, Midnight, and walk her in my doll carriage that I had a special love for animals.  I grew up outside of Boston in a small seaside town, Swampscott MA.  Growing up we had 2 cats and dogs throughout the years. Upon graduating from High School I pursued my other passion, Art, and pursued my Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Monsterrat College in Beverly, MA.  While I love to paint and create, it wasn’t until I graduated from college that I realized that my love of animals was my true passion and one that would lead me to a career in Veterinary Medicine.  I began working at North Country Animal League in Morrisville, VT where I truly understood this passion could become a career.  From there I went on to join the team at Sequist Animal Hospital and pursued my license as a Veterinary Technician.  I have worked in many hospital settings, both small and large, including Randolph Animal Hospital and Mass Veterinary Referral Hospital in Woburn MA.  I have continued to advance my skills working in Emergency medicine at SAVES in Lebanon NH to currently having the privilege of working at Stonecliff Animal Clinic.  I enjoy working with all animals in every capacity, but I have become passionate about surgery and have been fortunate to focus my skills in this area.   I take great pride working  at Stonecliff  for a multitude of reasons;  a few being the quality of care and empathy that is shown to each and every patient and client is extraordinary from the physicians to the support staff.  What I love most is that it is a family environment and I am honored to be a part of that.

 I am the mother to a very active two year boy who is my greatest passion in life. He already shares my love for animals and they are a big part of our family. We spend most of our free time enjoying the outside with our fur babies Kya our 11 year old Pitty, Abu our 15 year old kitty and Frankie our 7 year old kitty in addition to our cows.  I am still a beach girl at heart and love spending time by the water, being outdoors, listening to music, spending time with family and friends, and enjoying all that life has to offer!
