Theresa plays two vital roles at Delaney Veterinary Services. She is in control of our inventory as well as the lead individual in the management of Delaney Veterinary Services youngest team member Ashlyn. In Theresa’s spare time (which is sparse considering the demanding nature of child management), she enjoys baking, gardening, reading and spending time with her grandchildren.
