Dr. Nellie Savage, our Chief of Staff, grew up in Southwest Harbor, Maine. It was here that she gained an appreciation for the life this amazing state has to offer. After attending Middlebury College in Vermont, Dr. Savage spent four years experiencing life in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She came back East to attend veterinary school at Tufts University and shortly thereafter moved back up to Maine. Dr. Savage is thrilled to be back home where she belongs. She happily lives in South Portland with her wonderful husband Nathan and their beautiful triplet daughters, Reese, Maizie and Charlie. Also sharing in all the love are two Labrador retrievers, Wakefield and Gibson, and one frisky cat, Wall-E.
When not in the clinic, Dr. Savage enjoys outdoor activities such as gardening, biking, vacationing to family retreats, and pretty much anything that involves spending time with her family. Dr. Savage's love for animals led her to this profession, but it is her commitment to both the animals and their owners to offer the best medicine, surgery, advice, and emotional support that makes her the veterinarian that she is today. She understands that there are both good and bad moments in our pets' lives and she wants to be there for all of them.
