Jamie T

Practice Manager

Jamie grew up in Guilderland with an appreciation for all living things, going out of her way to show kindness to animals of all sizes. As she matured she realized she enjoyed working with people who shared this love of animals.

While looking for a profession where she could fulfill her calling, at age 21, a position opened up in customer service at a capital district veterinary office. This began a 12 year experience where she was able to learn about veterinary medicine and hone her great customer service skills, until she found her home at 4 Paws in 2013. Jamie particularly enjoys interacting with clients and assisting them in receiving the best care possible for their beloved family members.

As a practice manager of 4 Paws, Jamie wears many hats including but not limited to being an integral part of the hiring process, training staff and providing opportunities for advancement and continuing education and ensuring our clients receive the best service while our patients receive optimum care. She also ensures that team members work together to project the values and goals of our practice.

Currently Jamie lives in Voorheesville with her husband and 3 out of her 4 children. She is a proud “coast guard” mom to their oldest “kid” who they travel to see as often as they can. To round out the family they have 2 rescued dogs (you may see them peeking out from her office some days) and 3 rescued cats. If this isn’t enough to keep Jamie busy, and she has free time, she enjoys visiting their home on Lake Sacandaga where the family “unplugs” and recharges.

Jenna was born and raised in Orange County, NY. Her love for animals and the outdoors began at a very young age growing up on her uncle’s dairy farm in Middletown, NY. Jenna could be found brushing down the milking cows and loving on the barn cats. Or, running wild with the family farm German Shepherds. She enjoyed watching her uncle help birth calves, medicate the cows and learning nutritional needs for them to become quality milk producers. She loved helping bottle feed the calves, making sure they had fresh bedding and helping out with all the barn chores. Jenna knew she wanted to work with and help care for animals one day. 


Jenna’s veterinary career started in 2017 and she has been hooked ever since. She enrolled into the Veterinary Technician program through Penn Foster in 2019, and is working towards becoming a Licensed Veterinary Technician.

Caley C.

Ever since Caley was little, she had an absolute infatuation with wild life. Whether she was saving newts off the road after a heavy rain, honing her guinea pig communication skills, or exploring the creeks with her family's watch dog, Rolex, animals always brought love and joy into her life. 

Caley was a step-fur mom for many years and a fur-sitter for her numerous loved-ones babies. After 11 years in Charlotte, NC, Caley returned home to NY to be closer to family and the country lifestyle. Upon returning to NY, she also found the promise and solace of a rewarding career by helping and looking afterother people's pets when she joined the 4 Paws family in 2020. The 4 Paws fluffers bring joy to Caley's daily life until perhaps the time comes when she'll settle down with her own fluff-mcguff. One thing Caley knows for certain is "unconditional love is an absolute gift and should never be taken advantage of". 

In her spare time, you can find Caley drawing, painting, writing, spending time outside, and avoiding humans.

Anna C.

Anna C.

Anna grew up in a little town called East Berne in the Helderberg Hilltowns. Growing up in the countryside is just a piece of where Anna’s love for nature, wildlife, and animals came to be. Her first pet at the age of 3, a golden retriever named Toby, impacted her life so much from that young age she forever knew her dream was to work with animals someday. Her career with animals began at a small dog grooming business where she worked as a dog bather. She enjoyed making the doggos all saueaky clean and ready for their groom but quickly learned she wanted to do even more to help impact the lives of animals by working in veterinary medicine. Anna started in the field in 2020 as a kennel assistant in doggy care and attending to the boarders. Anna’s hard work, dedication, and passion for taking care of the animals was obvious so she was quickly given the opportunity to move up and become a veterinary assistant. She is very grateful and excited to be where she is today. She currently lives with her partner raising two tortoiseshell kitties named Callie and Chloe and goes to visit her family golden retriever Hunter at her parent’s home any chance she gets!

Lori W

Lori has been with the 4 Paws team since 2000 when she started working in the mornings prior to starting her day at her other job at RPI. She is the first person that the pets see every day and they all greet her with excitement. Lori has helped care and comfort the sick and spent much time coaxing them to eat when they didn't want to. Her love of animals and her special bond with each one is very rewarding for her. Animals are as at ease with her as she is with them, especially the nervous and anxious animals. She says that even a challenging pet needs love, and that being able to win them over is her greatest reward. Patience and perseverance and allowing the animal time to adjust is her formula. If asked who she loves the most, she says everyone she cares for.

Lori is patient, caring and spends a lot of time with each pet when they are here. If you listen closely you will often hear her say to each one “be good now and Lori will see you tomorrow and Lori loves you” as she does her last check on each one before she leaves for the day. She makes a point to know each pet’s likes and dislikes and leaves notes to inform the rest of the staff. Lori will not rest until each and every pet seems content and comfortable away from home.
