Veterinary Nurse and Receptionist
Maura joined Severna Park Veterinary Hospital in 2020 and enjoys playing a dual role on our team. She loves treating animals in need and the excitement of learning new things each day. Maura earned a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from the Delaware Valley University.
Her favorite leisure activities include listening to music, working out, swimming, and doing anything outdoors. She is often accompanied on her adventures by her chocolate lab, Murphy, who loves to snuggle with his teddy bear at night.
The staff is incredibly friendly, respectful, and well informed. They were able to squeeze me and my dog in, get lab results, and book her for surgery in just a few days; much faster than other vets I have been to. Their aftercare calls are a very welcome addition.

This office was extremely helpful while I was here from out of town. My dog had an emergency and they quickly got him in, treated him, and followed up with me. The staff and vet were both very friendly and professional. Thank you!!
