Our Staff




Beth grew up on a small farm in Dorothy, NJ raising livestock and horses over the years, peppered with multiple dogs and cats, of course. Oldest of 11 children, her life never has a dull moment. She officially started working in veterinary medicine in private practice at the Somers Point Veterinary hospital in 2002. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in 2004.  During her time in private practice, she transitioned from technician to lead surgery/anesthesia technician, to staff supervisor, and ultimately a hospital management position for several years. She has also worked in emergency medicine at the Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in Linwood. She is excited to have joined our team at Mainland Veterinary hospital in November 2015 when we opened our doors.

Beth’s current pet population is rather small, consisting of her dog "Leo", a Boston Terrier mix; 2 horses “Magic” and “Pippen” and 9 (or so) cats (depending on if they bring someone else home for dinner!

Outside of Veterinary medicine Beth enjoys DIY home improvement projects, Classic car shows, antiquing, art projects such as painting, drawing and clay sculpture, gardening and just being outside (when its warm!). When not at work, she enjoys catching up with her family, bowling and movies with her little brothers, girl nights and spending time with her husband – watching TV or sitting around the fire pit with a nice glass of wine…doing absolutely nothing but relaxing and watching the flames!



Marissa has been a veterinary technician for 15years.  She attended Rutgers University where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science.  Marissa's veterinary interests include dentistry and behavior.

In her off time, Marissa enjoys running and hiking with her husband, two children and two dogs.



Stacey was born and raised right here in Atlantic County. She is the proud mom of 5 human children and 3 fur babies. Stacey’s natural love to nurture brought her to Mainland.

In her free time Stacey loves to read, run, and spend time with her kiddos.




Sharon grew up in Cumberland County and started her animal career at a local animal shelter. She cleaned kennels and did pet adoptions. This interest in animals led her to a position as a vet assistant for 15 years. She assisted with all aspects of veterinary care from client education to surgery. After moving to Atlantic County and changing careers, the opportunity opened up to return to veterinary medicine. She was excited to join our staff as a receptionist and vet assistant.

In her free time, Sharon enjoys spending time with family and friends. Other interests are camping, hiking, exploring state parks and never-ending task of trying to keep weeds out of the garden.

Pat has been in the customer service field for over 50 years. She was widowed 3 years ago and the need arose to return to the workforce – it has proven to be both challenging and a blessing. She was given the opportunity to work with an amazing team and joined Mainland over a year ago.

Her love and respect for animals has increased over the years as she has gained and lost many pets and also volunteered for rescues and at a working farm. In her “free time” Pat spends time with family including 4 great grandchildren, singing in the choir and doing needle work and craft projects. She also has a small pet sitting service.

Currently her pack consists of 1 dog, 1 cat, 1 feral cat and 8 pond fish. She says she is not allowed to add to the pack at her age.




Dina started her career as a vet tech at age 20, while raising her 2 sons. When her veterinarian retired, she took a short hiatus from veterinary medicine and worked in human medicine.

After a while, she began to miss her true calling and went back to work in the veterinary world. She is thrilled to be a part of the Mainland team.
