Our Staff


Susan Perry is our practice manager. She attended the University of Massachusetts, Amherst where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Animal Science. After graduating in May of 1999, she began work at the Mattapoisett Animal Hospital.  Susan has a black lab named Grady and two cats: Stitch and Woofie. She loves spending any extra time with her family and traveling up north.  

Joanne Nicholson graduated from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. After graduation, she worked for a biotech company and then went on to work with marine animals.  She joined our family in 2010.  She lives in Wareham with her husband Kyle, their daughter Caelyn, two greyhounds: Moo and Fifi, their very sassy cat: Chuckles and a gecko named Clyde. 


Patricia Caron began her time at our hospital in 2017. She is a phenomenal painter and a professional artist, creating magnificent works in her spare time. Tricia has been happily married to her husband Roger since 2008, and they love to explore their town of Fairhaven riding bicycles. Along with Roger, she shares her home with her three gorgeous kitties Pepper, Jinx, and Finn.


Kayli Barriteau has been working at our hospital since May 2018. Kay is a first-degree black belt and has been practicing Shotokan Karate for five years. She enjoys spending time outdoors fishing and spending quality time with her friends by the campfire.  She has a Dwarf Angora named Benjamin who she absolutely adores.  


Lacey Brum joined our team in January of 2019. She spent two years at Becker College studying pre-veterinary medicine and graduated from BCC in 2016 with an Applied Associates of Science with a Concentration in Veterinary Healthcare. Lacey has five years of veterinary experience in both general and emergency practice. 


Harry was also a stray who came to us in February of 2010. He was very cold and malnourished and weighed only 4.5 pounds. After a few weeks of warmth, food, and endless love and attention, he has become a great addition to our hospital. Harry has three legs and double paws, so he has enough toes for four legs! As a result, we affectionately call him Harry Toes. In his spare time, Toes loves to snooze on the front desk, chase treats across the waiting room floor, and hang up phone calls until someone pays attention to him!

Alice is an African Grey who joined our staff in April of 2010. Alice has an amazing vocabulary that includes phrases like, "Alice is a bird," lyrics like Rihanna's, "work, work, work," and sound effects like sneezes and whooshes. In her spare time, Alice loves to eat grapes, shred paper, and flirt with men. You can find Alice behind our front desk from where she enthusiastically calls "goodbye" to exiting patients. 

Love and Glove are two white doves that have lived at the hospital for quite some time now. We are confident that either dove would make a wonderful addition to any magician's hat, professional or amateur. Our doves enjoy eating crushed up Cheez-It crackers and reminding patients of their existence with a startling set of coos.
