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 is kept busy by her triplet daughters, as well as Gibby the lab, Stella the King Charles, and Wal-E, Junior, and Hugo the feline crew. Throw some chickens and a few fish in there and you can see why Dr. Savage is such a busy lady!
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.
