Lindsey T. D'Addio, Office Manager and Reception
Lindsey was raised in Somers, NY. She attended Pace University in Pleasantville, NY while working full time in private aviation. When she and her husband Matt moved to New Fairfield, CT in 2008 she decided that it was time for her to finally fulfill her dream of working with animals. She worked for a wonderful animal hospital in Danbury for almost 9 years where she made lots of lasting friendships, but due to a change in her son Dylan's schedule (Kindergarten!), she had to make some changes of her own.
She is very excited for this new venture with an amazing team of people who happen to be equally amazing friends! She has a love for going on exciting new adventures with her son (especially out and about in nature), playing board games, and anything related to goats and cows. She has an incredible and enthusiastic passion of learning all things new and unique.
