Deborah A. Woods, LVT
Veterinary TechnicianDebbie is a retired police officer who came to MKVC in 2002 on a whim because of a PennySaver ad. As it turns out, veterinary care was her true calling, and she has never been happier. Debbie’s loyalty to MKVC is admirable because she travels from Brooklyn to Mount Kisco every day, and is amazingly always on time. Debbie recently completed the veterinary technician program at Penn Foster and attained her NYS veterinary technician license. Debbie has a passion for learning, and she attends dozens of lectures each year. Her next goal is to pursue a specialty in veterinary dentistry (she will never stop going to school). Debbie’s family includes her two children, Meghann and Patrick; her partner, Yvette; her dogs, Saoirse (Great Dane), Artemis (Great Dane), and Caoimhe (Toy Poodle); and her cats, Belleza, Socrates, Maya, and Talcum (African Grey). Debbie enjoys reading and sports, especially ice hockey. The most amazing place she has ever traveled to is Amsterdam, and her favorite movie is the Sound of Music. If Debbie won a million dollars, she would buy a home closer to MKVC!
Veterinary AssistantErika joined the MKVC team in April 2012. She works full time at MKVC and part-time at a local emergency/specialty hospital. Erika loves helping animals and feels like she was born to work in this field. The team at MKVC has become her second family. Erika has a great way of working with cats. Her family includes Dani (Rottweiler/Golden Retriever) and Amber (cat). In her free time, Erika enjoys spending time with friends and playing soccer. Erika’s favorite movie is This Is The End, and she loves the Twilight novels. Everyone at the practice knows she loves the color pink and pop music.
James D. Young
Veterinary AssistantJay has been a part of the MKVC team since October 2008. His loyalty and dedication to the practice are admirable. James is well known for his sense of humor, selecting our music, and keeping “mean time.” He works hard every single minute of his day, and never wastes any time. Recently, Jay has become a big advocate of laser therapy in our practice. If your pet is undergoing treatment, you will probably run into him. In his free time, Jay likes to exercise, coach youth athletics, root for the Steelers, and watch USA soccer. The most amazing place he has ever been is Medieval Times, and his favorite movie is Raising Arizona. Special talent? Bird calling.
Client CarePatty joined the MKVC team in October of 2011 after working at a local emergency/specialty practice. She always wanted to work with animals. After entering college as an art major, she changed her mind and followed her passion. Even though her role at our practice is client service oriented, she has a vast knowledge of veterinary medicine because she completed the technician program at Mercy College! Patty’s family includes her four children (Kristen, Brianne, Kenny, and Megan); her cat, Ringo; and the bunny with a lot of personality, Peanut. Patty has weird luck when it comes to winning concert tickets, and the most amazing place she has visited is Hawaii. Her favorite movie is the original Wuthering Heights with Laurence Olivier.
Veterinary AssistantErica has been with Mount Kisco Vet since May 2018. She is currently enrolled in the Penn Foster Veterinary Technician program to follow her dream of working with animals. Her favorite part of her current position is being involved with the care of each patient and being able to follow and learn from the doctors and technicians. Erica feels chosen to work with the pets who are nervous to see the vet because they respond well to her handling them, and she can help them be calm and comfortable.
At home, Erica has a German Shepherd Dog named Harley, a mixed breed named Moe, and a calico kitten named Sera. In her spare time, she takes her dogs hiking and camping and coaches high school cheerleading
