Carissa Smullen, DVM
Dr. Smullen grew up in the small town of Sandown and received her undergraduate degree from the University of New Hampshire in Durham. She graduated from the University of Glasgow in Scotland with her BVMS degree (the UK’s equivalent of a DVM) in June of 2010. She has been working as a small animal practitioner for the past seven years. After working at an integrative practice about four years ago, she developed an interest in alternative therapies and received her acupuncture certification at the Chi Institute in Florida in 2014. She also became certified in food therapy last year.
She enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine but shows particular interest in alternative medicine, acupuncture, soft tissue surgery, neurology, and further developing her ultrasound skills. She is looking forward to working with the staff here and meeting the clients and patients.
Dr. Smullen currently lives in Auburn, NH, with her husband, Jonathan, her dog, Leia, her cats Stjarna, Rapunzel, Aramis, and Chiana, and her chinchilla, Captain Jack. She enjoys running, yoga, painting, and spending time with her family in her spare time.
Beth has been working as a veterinary technician at the PKAMC since 2002, and was promoted to Head Technician/Practice Manager in 2011. She brings 20+ years of experience in the veterinary field to our practice, and has become an integral member of our team. She lives in Northern, MA with her husband and a menagerie of adopted cats and dogs.
Morgan joined the PKAMC team in 2015 as an intern from Great Bay Community College. She has since been hired on our staff as a certified veterinary technician. In her free time, she enjoys volunteering at local feral cat spay/neuter clinics. She also enjoys skiing, camping, and hiking with her family. She lives on the NH seacoast with her husband Ryan, daughter Brinley, cat Tsetse, and two dogs Dakota and Ilsa.
Morgan joined the PKAMC team in 2017. She brings over six years of experience with animals, small, large, and exotics. Morgan’s smiling face and cheerful attitude brighten everyone’s day. A Connecticut transplant, she and her husband live in southern New Hampshire on a small hobby farm where she cares for chickens, goats, horses, dogs, and cats. In her spare time, Morgan enjoys playing softball, field hockey, hiking, and showing her horse.
Keri grew up loving all animals. She found her passion through starting a career in the veterinary field as a receptionist in 2014. She is compassionate about client education and patient care. She enjoys fishing for just about everything in her free time, but her favorite catch is Northern Pike. She lives in Southern NH with her boyfriend and her cat, Roomba.
