She joined the family at Gloucester County Animal Hospital in 2008.  Sara and her husband Rich share their home with Toby, their Australian shepherd and a thoroughbred paint mare, Patience.  Sara received her Associates Degree in Veterinary Technology at Camden County College in 2008.


Devon Janowski

Don’t let her size fool you! Weighing less than a saint bernard, the tiny but mighty tatted up tech, Devon, can hold her own against an anxious mastiff or a spicy kitty. Devon showed interest in vet-med at a young age, as her family found themselves rescuing exotic critters, such as turtles, sugar gliders, and an owl! She got her first pet-care position at a vaccine clinic in the summer of 2021 where she was introduced to Shea, Sidney, and Tori. Thanks to them, Devon was able to start her dream job at Gloucester County Animal Hospital in November 2022.
    Devon has adopted 4 wonderful cats – Deethra, Harley, Nigel, and Reuben – a goofy golden retriever named Sampson, and a super snuggly ball python named Ssseverus Sssnape.


Stephanie Kircher

While working at the University of Pennsylvania Department of Medicine, Stephanie devoted her time to cat rescue.  Her career shifted to veterinary medicine when she joined the family at Gloucester County Animal Hospital in 2012.

She shares her home with 4 cats, Lola, Binx, Forrest and Tipsy and her rabbit, Roo.

Debby Lafferty

Debby joined our GCAH family in 2011. She works at the front desk and will welcome you with a smile when you walk through our door. Debby’s love and compassion for animals began as a young girl when her father would bring home birds and animals that were stray, homeless or injured. She watched as her father nursed the injured (wild) birds and animals back to health and release them. This quickly became a ‘contagious habit’ that she and her siblings would enthusiastically continue, so they had some very strange ‘pets’ as she was growing up, such as a crow, pigeons, chipmunks and even a rooster that she caught in the woods!

During the day, when she is not with us here at GCAH, Debby is a preschool teacher. She considers herself very blessed to be able to work with the two things she loves most in the world- children and animals.

Erin Lafferty

Erin started her veterinary medicine career at GCAH in 2020. From reception to teching to assisting in surgery, Erin’s favorite part of her job is learning and mastering new skills to help care for the well-being of animals. Although Erin appreciates all animals, she has a special place in her heart for dachshunds and orange tabby cats. Outside of the hospital, you’ll most likely find Erin memorizing every lyric off of whatever Taylor Swift’s most recent album is.
Erin lives at home with her three cats (Bailey, Crowley, & Tucker), her two dogs (Charlie & Annie), and her two guinea pigs (Maggie & Maisy).


Shea Littleton

Most likely to sport Slytherin green, you’ll find Shea around GCAH showing off her strength by carrying your 100lb GSD. Shea’s love of animals started when she was young, always surrounded by multiple pets of her own. When she pursued her career with animals, it came as no surprise that the wanna-be vet jumped into the medical field as soon as possible. Now she is more than content to love on every cat and dog that enters the hospital’s doors.
Shea joined the GCAH team in 2021, shortly bringing Tori, Sidney and Devon along with her.


Tori Powell

Also known as Small Sidney, Tori is most likely to cuddle up to large cats and small dogs, patiently supporting your shy fur babies into being best friends. Tori switched up an education in Culinary Arts for Vet Med 5 years ago, and found there is nowhere they would rather be, supporting every patient that comes through the doors with open arms.  Tori found their dream hospital in GCAH in 2021, and plans to continue growing and learning for a long time to come.


Sidney Pollman

Growing up, Sidney always knew she wanted to work with animals, and in 2018, she finally took a step in the direction of her dreams. She moved all the way from a tiny town in southwest Texas called Leakey and ended up in Philadelphia, working at a vaccine clinic. Sidney soon realized she wanted something more fulfilling from the vet med field and joined the GCAH family in 2021. When she’s not at home annoying her cat, you can usually find her with a book in her hands or with netflix on the TV while sipping a very large coffee.

What They’re Barking About

“I hope that all of you realize the value that you bring to pet and animal owners. To be good in veterinary care is one thing but to sincerely care about each animal and their owners is priceless.  I cannot thank you enough.”
