Amanda

Hospital Manager

Request an Appointment

If you asked Amanda what she loves most about the veterinary field, she’d say the challenges. Truth is, you just never know what’s going to come walking through that door. From sweet pitties to aggressive kitties, there’s always something new to learn about how to handle, comfort, and treat pets. This is a profession that is ever changing and growing, and Amanda considers herself incredibly lucky to be a part of it.

Amanda started her journey right here at Animals First Veterinary Hospital when she joined the team as a receptionist in 2017. Over the coming years, she learned as much as she could, from the front of the house to the back, and eventually worked her way up to the title of Hospital Manager. Professionally, Amanda enjoys meeting our patients at every stage of life and building relationships with their owners.

Outside of the clinic, Amanda is happily engaged and the proud mom of two children: Jolene and Jaxson. She doesn’t currently have any pets of her own because keeping up with the kids keeps her busy enough! In what little spare time she can find, Amanda enjoys photography and being with family.

Stephanie

Stephanie

Receptionist

Ever since she was a little girl, Steph has always been drawn to animals. She felt that when she looked into their eyes, she could feel their soul. One day, while walking home from middle school, Steph came across a baby squirrel that had fallen from its nest and been abandoned by its mother. She brought it home, nursed it back to health, and took it to a sanctuary. The experience made Steph realize that whatever she did in life, she wanted to help animals in any way she could.

Steph is currently enrolled in Rowan College of South Jersey taking coursework to become a veterinary technician. Her long-term goal is to enroll in veterinary school and one day become a veterinarian. For now, she’s learning as much as she can, gaining some valuable hands-on experience, and enjoying the perks of the job that let her interact with pets day in and day out.

At home, Steph and her husband have two human children and several animal ones, including a ball python named Juju, two parakeets named Blueberry and Spike, a green iguana named Reptar, and three chocolate labs. Some of Steph’s hobbies and interests include horseback riding, reading, and doing crafts.


Tiffany

Veterinary Technician

Growing up as the baby of the family, by the time Tiffany was in elementary school, her siblings had grown up and left home. Without her brothers and sisters there to keep her company, she turned instead to the family pets. Even at a very young age, Tiffany knew deep down in her heart that caring for animals was what she wanted to do. And while life has certainly brought her on many twists and turns over the years, she is thrilled to finally be in a career that she loves!

When Tiffany was in high school, she joined Future Farmers of America, through which she raised bunnies and goats for show. Her first job was at a boutique pet store where she assisted with the routine medical care and vaccinations of the puppies and kittens. She also did beak, wing, and nail trims, hand raised baby birds, bred snakes, raised reptiles, and became somewhat of a local resource for exotic pets and injured wildlife. After enrolling in an intense program at Moorpark College, however, and listening to the naysayers in her family, Tiffany decided to play it safe and settle for an office job.

After relocating several times throughout her young adult years, Tiffany met a boy and the two moved to Florida, where they started a family. Unhappy with the education system there, the family moved to New Jersey, where they settled into their forever home. When their twin daughters were 13, Tiffany decided it was time to return to work, but this time she decided to follow her heart and pursue a career she was passionate about. She joined the Animals First team in the fall of 2022 and hasn’t looked back since!

Clinically, Tiffany enjoys assisting with surgeries – particularly the responsibility of anesthesia monitoring. The satisfaction of a job well done is so much more impactful when it’s a life you’re dealing with and not just a project. She also takes great pride in getting to know new pet parents and sharing some of the wisdom she’s garnered throughout her lifetime of working with animals in one capacity or another. In addition to serving as a veterinary technician, Tiffany also co-owns Safe at Home Rescue.

Outside of work, Tiffany’s family consists of her husband, their twin daughters, and a veritable zoo of pets. Dozer is a Great Dane/Shepherd mix who makes up for his lack of intelligence with his giant heart. Yogi is a goofy, fluffy, and slobbery Bernese Mountain dog. Willow is a retired mill mama Golden Retriever. Sarge is a soft-coated Wheaton/Poodle mix who is known for faking a limp for attention. Benji, a Beagle/Bulldog mix, was adopted after the passing of his owner. Kitties Raz, Mimic, and Shiver each have their own rescue story. Rounding out the crew are three mice, two giant millipedes, and a snake.

While she can rarely find the time to fit them in, Tiffany has an impressive number of hobbies, including crocheting, knitting, sculpting, painting, building, customizing, playing, singing, and just about anything else you could think of.
