Maggie Cristoforo

Veterinary Technician

Hi, I'm Maggie. I just graduated from Mount Ida College with a degree in Veterinary Technology. I was born and raised in Middleton, MA. I have been a Veterinary Technician at MSAH for 4 months now. My passion is working with animals. I started in middle school working at a horse barn. I took care of the horses as well as assisted in teaching riding lessons. When I moved on to college I was on the Mount Ida Equestrian Team and I loved it!!! I believe every animal is a family member and should be treated as so! I have so much fun working with and learning about animals each and everyday. I look forward to meeting you and your pet!

Sarah Cantone

Kennel Technician/ Vet Assistant

My name is Sarah and I am the Kennel Technician / Veterinary Assistant. I started at MSAH in January of 2016. Since I started working here, my passion for veterinary medicine has flourished! I just finished studying at Northshore Community College and received my Associates Degree for ACS - Animal Care Specialist. After a lot of studying and hard work, I was just accepted in the Veterinary Technician Program starting in the Fall of 2017. I couldn't be anymore excited!!! I look forward to meeting you and your pet soon.


Elvis aka "The King"- our mascot. Elvis has been with us since 2004 when he came to us as a stray hit by car. He has since been spoiled by the MSAH staff and has won over the hearts of many. To win over his heart all you need is food; he'll even sit and give his paw for a treat!
