Our team of caring professionals is devoted to you and your pet!

practice manager mattIn 2013, Matt and his family moved to the Hubbard area so that his wife, Dr. Jennifer Hamilton, could pursue her career as a veterinarian. Having left his friends and family behind, he gave up his career as a mail carrier to be a full time stay-at-home dad. While the transition was difficult, he made it work.

In 2014, they had their second child and the whole game changed. As much as he loved staying with the kids, for his peace of mind he really needed to get back into the workforce. Matt gladly joined the team at Hermitage Veterinary Hospital as Practice Manager in spring of 2015.

Matt has a variety of interests ranging from muscle cars to monster trucks and Star Trek to Star Wars. Currently, he is building a 1988 Corvette and is always on the lookout for new projects and opportunities. His furry family includes five dogs and one cat whose full names are Yoda Baby Girl, Probie-Wan Kenobi, Princess Leia Organa del Rey, Maz Kanata Bel, Darth Shadow, and last but not least, Boba Fluff.

receptionist-jolisa-wetzel-Jolisa, better known as "Jo," has always had a passion for animals. Growing up, she had a variety of pets, including ducks, turtles, parakeets, dogs, a cat, goats, horses and even a chinchilla. She also grew up fishing and participating in rodeo, which both continue to be her favorite hobbies.

Jo met the love of my life when he was stationed at Cannon Air Force Base located in Portales, New Mexico, which is her hometown. After Danny served his six years in the military, they moved to Pennsylvania in August 2015. Jo graduated from Animal Behavior College in 2015 as a Certified Veterinary Assistant, and joined the Hermitage Veterinary Hospital team in April 2016.

Jo and Danny have three dogs: Sadie is a Catahoula Leopard Cur, Koda is a Collie/Corgi mix, and the man of the house is Cudi, a Mini Maltese. 

Cheryl joined the Hermitage Veterinary Hospital team in 2013. She is always learning something new, and enjoys getting to know every client and patient that comes through our doors. She and her husband moved to the area from Texas with seven cats and one dog... they now have 10 cats and two black Lab mixes! All of the dogs and nine cats are rescues. Cheryl has always had a special place in her heart for animals and tries to help strays whenever possible.
