Kait

Veterinary Technician

Kait used to work in the food-service industry; after some time off thanks to a surgical procedure, she realized that she didn’t want to return to that career path. That’s when Kait decided to pursue something that made her truly happy: animal care! Now, she’s proud to serve as a Veterinary Technician here at Marriottsville Animal Hospital.

Kait grew up in Baltimore with her parents, brother, and sister. She’s currently attending college to study nursing, and hopes to eventually earn her Master’s degree and become a Physician’s Assistant. Kait joined the Marriottsville Animal Hospital family in the summer of 2017 on the recommendation of a friend, and she’s been caring for the area’s pets and animal parents ever since. Her favorite part of the work is getting to witness the healing process—for Kait, nothing is more rewarding than seeing a patient through from initial treatment to full recovery.

When she has a spare moment between her school and work commitments, Kait likes to cook—half of her family is Italian, and they only cook from scratch!—and spend time at home with her rescued German shepherd, Lila. Kait’s younger sister has dreams of one day becoming a veterinarian herself, and she loves to help out Kait by giving Lila baths, trimming her nails, and even taking her temperature!

Areebah

Veterinary Assistant

Areebah was born in Chippewa, Pennsylvania and moved with her family to Crofton, Maryland at a young age before settling in Ellicott City. She joined the Marriottsville Animal Hospital team in early 2017, and has been loving every minute of her time here at the clinic—Areebah finds that her favorite part of every shift is chatting with clientele and getting to meet their lovable pets.

As Areebah’s father is a veterinarian, she had had the opportunity to grow up, or for all intents and purposes, be raised in a veterinary office. Having shadowed her father over the years she has had the luxury of observing many veterinary procedures, while also meeting various clients and pets. Now that Areebah is a part of the Marriottsville Animal Hospital team, she gets to continue her experiences but as an active participant rather than observe in patient and client care.

Outside of school and work Areebah is an avid reader and writer. She has an old soul and never tires of classic literature. She is proud of the multiple short stories and poetry she has written which were published in school publications!
