Dr. Garzotto

Caroline Garzotto VMD, DACVS is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine class of 1996.


Prior to veterinary school, she was a computer engineer working in Pittsburgh before she finally embarked on her dream to become a veterinarian.


After graduation from Penn, her interest in small animal surgery led her to an internship in a private practice in Connecticut, followed by a three year residency in small animal surgery at Tufts University and The Angell Memorial Hospital in Boston. After the residency she returned to her home state of New Jersey and spent a year as a lecturer at The Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital at The University of Pennsylvania.


Dr. Garzotto became a Diplomate of The American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2001 and began working at a specialty practice for a few years before going back to the University of Pennsylvania in 2004. She is now an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Surgery at Penn where she runs both Soft Tissue and Orthopedic clinics and teaches veterinary students, interns and residents. Her special areas of interest include oncologic surgery and wound management.


She lives with her family in Haddonfield (husband, two daughters, one dog and three cats).


Her hobbies include fixing up her old house, gardening and walking the dog around town.

Dr. Schoell

Dr. Jessica Schoell is a 2004 graduate of University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. Her professional interests include diagnostic imaging, soft tissue surgery, and emergency medicine.


She started her veterinary career in a small animal practice where she received hands- on training caring for exotic pets. However, the siren song of emergency veterinary medicine was too strong to ignore and she moved into emergency care full time after two years of general practice. After a few years of really strange working hours, she decided that a better sleeping schedule and improved family time was more important, and made the transition back to general practice (doing emergency from time to time).


In her free time, Dr. Schoell enjoys making jewelry, quilting, playing with her small pack of dogs, and chasing her two boys around the house.

Dr. Kaplan

Dr. Jessica Kaplan earned a degree in animal science from Cornell University before continuing on at Cornell to earn her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. She then completed another year of vigorous training as an intern in veterinary medicine and surgery in southern California. After working in sunny California as a small animal veterinarian for several years, she returned to the East Coast to practice in Medford, NJ before joining the Voorhees Veterinary Center. Her professional interests include surgery, dermatology, and preventative medicine.


Dr. Kaplan's interests outside of work include running, tennis, spending time outdoors, playing piano. She has also recently taken up skiing. Dr. Kaplan lives in Philadelphia with her labradoodle, Molly and her cat, Oscar.

Dr. Hanan

Dr. Renee Hanan is a 1997 graduate of The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.  Having grown up on the New Jersey shore, Dr. Hanan attended Boston University earning her BA in Italian Studies then a BS degree in Animal Science from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.  After a career in social work assisting an aging Italian-speaking clientele in East Boston, Dr. Hanan completed an internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital prior to beginning her career in general practice. She has a special interest in internal medicine and geriatric pets, and loves working with clients and their pets to provide quality care with compassion. Dr. Hanan lives in Cherry Hill with her husband, four children and 3 chickens.

Dr. Brody

Dr. Lisa Brody earned her bachelor's degree in animal science from University of Delaware. After completing her undergraduate degree she pursed a Master's Laboratory Animal Science from Drexel University. Dr. Brody completed her VMD from The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. 


After veterinary school, she started her career in a busy emergency and general practice before coming to Voorhees Veterinary Center. Dr. Brody worked both areas switching between preventative medicine and emergencies. Her professional interests include emergency medicine, dermatology, geriatric medicine and preventative care. She loves working with clients to strengthen the human animal bond through care and compassion. 


Dr. Brody's interests outside of work include running, attending live music concerts, traveling and spending time with friends and family. Dr. Brody lives in Philadelphia and enjoys experiencing all the city has to offer. 

Dr. Gartland

Dr. Sam Gartland grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. He received a degree in Business Administration from Bucknell University and his Veterinary Medical Degree from the University of Pennsylvania. He completed a small animal rotating internship at Oradell Animal Hospital and since then he has worked in emergency and general practice. His professional interests include emergency and critical care, surgery, toxicology, and internal medicine.

Dr. Gartland's interests outside of veterinary medicine include spending time with his wife Jess (who is also a veterinarian), his Great Danes, Caspian and Piper, and his cat, Domino. Additionally, his hobbies include cooking, traveling, sports, spending time with friends, and playing guitar.

I am the Medical Administrator for the Voorhees Veterinary Center and have been here since 1992.  Wow! That’s a long time.


I was trained as a Veterinary Assistant at the Animal Science program at Camden County College.  I have worked in every facet of veterinary care at the Center.  I am responsible for assisting our professional staff in surgery, dentistry, ultrasound procedures, and radiology.  I participate in training and supervising our medical technician staff members as well as interfacing with our laboratory providers and drug representatives.


Currently I do not have any pets to brag about since my 2 kids keep my husband and me pretty busy.  We look forward to adding some four legged friends to our family when the time is right.

over the past decade.  I live in Williamstowm with my two cats, Jackson and Kiwi.

Anyone who knows me knows that my joy in life comes from my two goofy Basset Hounds, Penny and Pumper. Their big floppy ears and unconditional love can make any bad day instantly better; unless of course one of them (Pumper) has eaten another rock.

I have twenty-eight years of experience as a manager and production specialist in the electronic print industry, however, my passion for assisting animals has led me to extensive volunteerism and a new career. 


Since 2007 I have been the

Adoption Center Outreach Coordinator through

Camden County Animal Shelter bringing adoptable

animals closer to the public via the Voorhees

Veterinary Center, other retail establishments as

well as other public venues such as The Collingswood Farmer's Market  to both educate the community and promote shelter adoption.  


Over the years I developed an interest in the medical aspects of shelter care as I began to volunteer time assisting with the Spay Our Strays Program through the shelter and ultimately was

appointed The Medical Services Area Supervisor

One of my greatest

accomplishments is as Co-founder and Treasurer

During my free time, I enjoy exercising and spending time with my family and friends. I have a cat named Whiskers and two Shih Tzus named Rocky and Charlie that I adore very much.

I am currently a student in the Veterinary Technology program at Camden County College. I graduate in the Spring and I can’t wait to work with animals and their families full time! I have been an animal lover my whole life. Growing up, I had everything from dogs to hissing cockroaches. Needless to say, I love taking care of all animals!

Elena is one of the veterinary nurses here. Her career path started at her local shelter socializing the cats, getting to know them, and posting their adoption biographies when she first started high school. 


She attended Rutgers University New Brunswick and graduated in the top 10% of her class with a major in Animal Science. Throughout her undergraduate career, she was an animal caretaker on the Rutgers farm and got to work closely with pigs, sheep, goats, horses, and cattle. She also had the wonderful experience of raising a puppy for the Seeing Eye, a male German Shepherd named Frosty, who recently graduated from the program and will soon be placed with his visually impaired partner. She is particularly interested in the training/behavior aspect of the animal world as well as the human-animal bond.

Lauren Matthews

Joined 2015


Hi, my name is Lauren and I've been a veterinary technician at Voorhees Veterinary Center since October 2015. 


I am currently a student at The Camden County College Veterinary Technician Program. I enjoy working at Voorhees Veterinary Center because it has given me the opportunity to use what I learn in the classroom in a clinical setting.

Additionally, I am surrounded by people with years and years of experience so I learn new skills every day.


I spend most of my free time with my Pit bull, Mia, and my Jack Russell Terrier, Bailey. 

Samantha Tallant

Joined 2016


I have many years in the veterinary field and my career choice was inspired by the first dog I adopted, a Red Nose Pit Bull named Wilfred.  He completely changed my life and definitely for the better.


Previous to my work with The Voorhees Veterinary Center I worked at an animal hospital specializing in exotic pets, a large animal practice and an animal clinic in an urban neighborhood of Philadelphia which caters specifically to cats so I have worked in a broad spectrum of the veterinary world.


Though I began my work as an assistant, I quickly became one of our head veterinary nurses at The Voorhees Veterinary Center because of my experience and skill level.  My primary goal is to insure every patient receives the highest quality of medical care, while at the same time feels the comfort and support I would give to my own furry companion.


In my free time I enjoy baking and discovering new places to explore with Wilfred by my side.  At the moment I don't have a feline friend to call my own, but I hope to fill that void soon!

I am an extremely experienced Veterinary Technician having worked in the field for over twelve years and I graduated with a degree in Animal Science in 2007.  

While I am very skilled in the hospital setting, I prefer the outdoors!

I grew up surrounded by horses and dogs my whole life and currently mentor young people as a leader in the Camden County 4H community which is the largest youth development organization in America.

In addition to spending as much time as possible with my horses, I enjoy the backroads in my ATV and Jeep Wrangler.

Laura Lord

Joined 2016


Though I originally began my studies as a nursing major in human medicine, my lifelong passion for working with animals influenced my decision to change my major and I am currently working toward a degree in Veterinary Technology.


In part, my decision was influenced by my sister who is already a veterinary technician.  As we were growing up together we often worked together to find way to assist animals. Together, the two of us fostered many animals throughout our lives including cats, dogs, birds, and amphibians. I realized I could not pass up the opportunity to make it my career as my sister already finds it so satisfying.   


I enjoy working at the Voorhees Veterinary Center because I work directly with the doctors and certified technicians which allows me to put what I learn in school into practice.


In addition to my work with animals, I enjoy photography, reading and spending time with my family.  We currently share our home with our dogs, Delilah, Scorch and Basil and cats, Bubby, Dora and Ruby.

Troy Conte

Joined 2017


Hey! I'm Troy! I was born in Philadelphia and moved to the south Jersey area when I was 3. My passion for animals really kicked off when I was visiting family and rescued a dog who was abandoned and needed a home. Since then, I've always known I needed to make a difference in animals' lives. I've professionally worked with animals for the past 3 years, and I've been around them my whole life. I'm completely passionate about what I do everyday. Each pet who comes in is incredibly important to me and I strive to give them the best care they need. Previously, I've worked with cats, dogs, and farm animals such as goats, pigs, and chickens. I'm incredibly passionate about working dogs and dogs who just need a little more time and are just a little misunderstood. I absolutely love what I do and I couldn't imagine doing anything else. I love going into work everyday and creating bonds not only the pets and our clients, but my wonderful co-workers as well. One day, I hope to become a successful veterinarian. In my free time, I like to spend time with my kitten, Zazu, (who I've adopted from Voorhees Veterinary Center), read, and enjoy my time around friends and family.
