  • Jeremy Thompson

  • Rae White
    Veterinary Client Care Specialist/ Veterinary Assistant

    Born and raised in the heart of Tamworth NH, Rae learned the importance of taking care of not only dogs and cats, but also a variety of farm animals. Rae’s love for all animals started  on a farm where she spent most of her time raising cows, chickens, turkeys, and pigs. If you couldn’t find her on the farm, you could find her at the Tamworth Fire Department where she was a volunteer fire fighter for four years. Rae likes to spend her spare time with her family, and on the trails riding ATV’s and dirt bikes!

  • Mary Anne Alliegro
    Veterinary Client Care Specialist/ Veterinary Assistant

    Born and raised in Lawrence, MA, Mary Annes love for God's creatures, great and tiny, led to her pursuit of degrees in biology and microbiology. She and her husband, Mark, have worked together in scientific research throughout the country for over 30 years. They have raised two wonderful daughters, Nicole and Kelly, and their home has never been without loving furred, feathered, finned, scaled and/ or shelled kids. Tilly and Misty are their newest family members! Hurricane Katrina ultimately blew the Alliegro Lab to the Marine Biological Labratory in Woods Hole, where Mary Anne continued as  Sr. Research Associate. She later joined the NOAA Science Aquarium, training Atlantic harbor seals and caring for nearly 100 marine species. Finally settled where they consider home, the Alliegros love New Hampshire and its great outdoors. Mary Anne is thrilled to join the MPAH Team, serving local clients and their families, where her job is wonderfully fulfilling and every day is a new adventure!


  • Allison Thompson
    Certified Veterinary Technician

    Allison was raised in Gorham, NH where she learned to love and care for all animals that she encountered. Caring for her geriatric, diabetic family cat as a child, made her fall in love with veterinary medicine and all the slobber and fur that it came with. Allison obtained  her degree in Veterinary Technology from Vermont Technical College. She especially enjoys being involved with geriatric patient care and surgical monitoring. On her off time, Allison loves to reel in fish, photograph wildlife, and run with her four-legged hound Thor.

  • Faith Boucher

    Faith was raised in New Hampshire and knew from a very young age that she wanted to do something with animals. She was curious about the veterinary field and was able to get an apprenticeship with Meadow Pond through her high school in 2016. She is currently attending Saint Joseph’s College where she will graduate with a major in biology and a minor in chemistry.
