I am Tracey, the full time Head Receptionist at Clarendon Animal Clinic. I have been here since October 2013. Although new to the animal health field, my previous career paths brought me in touch with animals in both sad & tragic as well as unique and fulfilling ways. From witnessing first-hand how therapy and service dogs can have such positive impacts on people to assisting in obtaining protection for those animals who have been caught in the crossfire of domestic violence. I genuinely love working with both pet owners and their cherished pets. I am continuously in awe by the wonderful individuality and personality in every single animal and in the connection between humans and animals.

I Graduated from the Castleton State College with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology in 1998. I worked for Rutland Mental Health for the first 10 years out of college as a Triage & Crisis Clinician and then the next five years as a Domestic & Sexual Violence Legal Advocate for the Rutland County Women’s Network & Shelter.

In my spare time, I enjoy taking long walks and hikes with my husband, Brian and our dog-ter, Dolce in our backyard woods. I also enjoys decorating, repurposing & refurbishing, crafting, gardening and spending time with my friends & family.
