William “Bill” P.

Veterinary Technician/Kennel Supervisor

Thanks to his family farm, Bill has spent time around all sorts of animals, including geese, guinea pigs, and even a baby deer. For him, animal care is just something that comes naturally. Why not continue to help animals in whatever way he could, Bill thought, by working in the world of veterinary medicine?

Bill is a 1997 graduate from Kent County High School and studied communications before entering the world of animal medicine. He serves as a Veterinary Technician with the Galena Animal Medical Clinic family, and loves to help pets feel better on a daily basis—nothing beats seeing a happy, healthy patient reunited with their loving owner!

Bill recently bought a home in Chesapeake Landing. He lives with his two spoiled dogs.

Joanna E.

Administrative/Receptionist

Joanna started working in the veterinary field 35 years ago when she was a teenager growing up in California. Now, she’s drawing on all her years of experience in the world of animal medicine to provide the pets and animal owners of this area with top-notch care!

Joanna came to Galena Animal Medical Clinic after moving to this area from Massachusetts, where she had lived for the past 23 years. She’s been a member of the hospital family since the fall of 2017, and she loves to meet and greet pets and animal parents at the front desk. For Joanna, nothing beats welcoming a new pet owner and their companion to the clinic for the first time.

Most of Joanna’s free time is spent with her family and pets at home. She lives in Warwick with her husband, three wonderful children, a pair of cats, a friendly dog and a horse.

Luanne C.

Administrative/Receptionist

Luanne has worked many jobs throughout her career, and she’s enjoyed nearly every single one. But one field stood out above all the rest: veterinary medicine. Luanne is thrilled to care for not only animals, but their loving owners as well, as a member of Galena Animal Medical Clinic’s front-desk team!

Luanne graduated from Queen Anne’s County High School in 1986 and also attended Chesapeake College and Wilmington University. She works part-time as a receptionist here at the hospital, and much of her time away from the clinic is spent owning and operating her own school bus company in Queen Anne’s County. Luanne is also a Driver’s Education Instructor!


Luanne has been married since 1987—she and her husband have two wonderful daughters and also share their lives with three loveable dogs.

Kerry C.

Office Manager

Kerry has always had a knack for computers, apps, and problem-solving. Of course, she’s also loved animals ever since her earliest days. When the opportunity arose for her to combine both of those interests, she jumped at the chance! Starting out as a Tech at Galena Animal Medical Clinic, Kerry moved into becoming the Social Media Administrator, and now serves as Office Manager which carries many new responsibilities.

Kerry joined the team here at the hospital in October of 2017 and has been serving the area’s pets and animal parents ever since. Her broad skillset includes organization, photography, and storytelling—she also makes sure there is a healthy dose of humor around the entire team to brighten up every shift!

At home, Kerry lives with her two beautiful daughters, five wonderful cats, and three cute rabbits.

Samantha M.

Kennel Assistant

Sam has always been interested in veterinary medicine, and she even plans on attending college in the future to become a veterinarian. She couldn’t be happier to gain more hands-on experience in pet care as a member of the Galena Animal Medical Clinic family—Sam is a proud member of the kennel team.

A Kent County High School class of 2022 STEM student, Sam has been a member of the clinic family since July of 2019. She makes it her mission to soak up as much knowledge as she can from the clinic’s doctors, Technicians, and support staff, and her favorite part of every shift is getting to meet new pets and help them feel as comfortable as possible.

Many of Sam’s interests outside of work and school involve animals as well. She enjoys riding horses, participating in the 4-H club, and showing rabbits and dogs. Sam lives with her parents, brother, two dogs, a pair of chickens, and five rabbits.
