Meet the Northeastern Veterinary Care Center Team
HEAD VETERINARY TECHNICIAN (CVT)
Abby started with us as an exam room assistant in 2019 while pursuing her Vet Tech degree in MxCC’s Veterinary Technology program. She graduated in 2020, passed her certification exam, and is thrilled to now be working for Dr. Beal as a Certified Vet Tech! She has always had a passion for animals and science, and thus, she decided to pursue a career path that fused both. She has one sassy, 19-year-old cat named Ginger, whom she’s had since a wee kitten. She also previously had a cat named Beans, who, unfortunately, at the young age of 18 months, succumbed to a liver disease and joined kitty heaven. This further fueled her desire to pursue the veterinary field and aid animals any way she can!
Jessie came to us after working in the restaurant industry since she was 16 years old. She decided she wanted to do something she is more passionate about and she has loved animals since a young age. Jessie feels privileged to work with such a caring doctor and staff. In her free time she enjoys hiking, camping, and spending time in nature. Additionally, she and her partner have been slowly renovating their house since 2020. Their favorite additions to their home are their 2 dogs, Whiskey and Sage.
RELIEF VETERINARY TECHNICIAN (LVT)
Gwendolyn was our first technician when we opened the clinic in July 2017. She is a Licensed Veterinary Technician here at Northeastern Veterinary Care Center. She received her degree through SUNY Ulster and has worked with animals all her life. Originally from New York, she knew she wanted to work with animals during her early high school years. After 4 great years on staff (and two adopted rescued patients!), Gwen has moved on to an exciting opportunity at Pfizer, but still likes to keep her hand in as a vet tech and continues relief work with us on weekends.
VETERINARY TECHNICIAN ASSISTANT
Kayla is an avid animal lover and has always had a passion to care for animals and is now making that dream a reality here at Northeastern Veterinary Care Center. Her greatest achievement is her sons, Aiden age nine and Austin age eight. They share their home with their beloved canine Axle and in Kayla’s free time she enjoys all aspects of working with horses. Her goal is to go back to school and further her education to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician.

She recently moved to Conneticut from Philadelphia where she got her M.A. in Museum Studies and marketing. She is currently taking classes to become a certified Veterinary Technician. Tarilyn shares her home with herpartner and two spoiled cats- Apollo and Hades.
EXAM ROOM ASSISTANT
Beverly has grown up with animals all her life. After caring for her rabbit, Carbun, who had suffered from GI Stasis she couldn’t deny her calling to care for animals. Since then, she has completed MxCC’s Veterinary Assistant Certificate program in 2019. Her passion to care for animals has now become a reality here at Northeastern Veterinary Care Center. While she gets hands-on experience working beside Dr. Beal, she is now enrolled in Penn Foster’s Veterinary Technology Associate Program. She is a dog mom to her Australian Cattle Dog Rev and American Pit Bull Gunner. Along with their little sister Nutmeg a Syrian Hamster.
EXAM ROOM ASSISTANT
Pursuing her interests, Nevaeh studied at Three Rivers Community College where she earned a Veterinary Assistant certification. She was proud of this achievement as it afforded her the opportunity to work with animals. She completed her internship at New London VCA where she quickly decided a career in the veterinary industry was for her! Since joining the team at NEVCC, she has especially enjoyed developing meaningful relationships with our patients. In her free time she enjoys gaming and growing her knowledge of animal behavior. She has 3 dogs including little spoiled rotten Sadie who is the baby so thinks she does not have to follow rules!
Clayton heads up our support staff and handles the business administration necessary to keep us up and running and serving our clients. He is a retired U.S. Coast Guard officer. He holds graduate degrees in both Education & Training and Business Administration. Married to our Medical Director, Dr. Beal, Clayton is a co-owner of the clinic. Together they share a home in North Stonington with their fur kids Rosie, Holstein and Puck.
“It is rare to find a vet who not only has an excellent and warm bedside manner but is also talented in her surgical skills. Today, Jazz is back home and full of energy. As owners of 4 cats, we will be following Dr. Beal to her new practice in Mystic to ensure the future well being of them and our peace of mind. Thanks again!”
