Hey there! My name is Samantha (aka Sam #1) and I am the receptionist at Parkside Animal Hospital. I have been working in the animal health industry since 2011 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I am currently owned by two dachshunds! Oscar, and Mya. They enjoy going for walks-in the summer of course (they don’t really like the cold all that much), chasing small rodents in their backyard, and burrowing themselves into any blanket-like thing they can get their little paws on!
My love for animals started before I was knee high to a grass hopper. My first pet was when I was 11 months old and was a white cat named Snowball. He seemed to follow me everywhere, but it may have been me following him! Since then I have had almost every kind of pet, from newts to turtles, degus to rabbits to hedgehogs, birds, and of course cats and dogs.
I am very happy and proud to say that I am one of the team members of Parkside Animal Hospital and I look forward to having the opportunity to meet you and your fur babies!!
