Licensed Veterinary Technicians


Taisha Colon, LVT Hospital Supervisor

Taisha Colon graduated and became a Licensed Veterinary Technician from Laguardia Community College in 2006. She has been working for DVM hospitals since 2005. Her passion for animals has increased by four since working with DVM hospitals – she now owns three beagles and a cat (who is more like a dog!)


Nancy Neumann

Licensed Veterinary Technician, Nancy Neumann has found both a rewarding but stressful career that is nonetheless all worthwhile -- she enjoys being part of the Downtown Veterinary Medical Hospital team. She loves being able to see owners’ reactions when we are able to help their furry family members, and acknowledges that she definitely has a sweet spot for the older canine and feline family members. She has a special interest in dentistry and is a big advocate of brushing your pet's teeth. Her cat, Pretzel Cucchiaio, loves the CET poultry toothpaste and doesn't mind the 1 minute brushing!

Heidi currently lives with her two furry companions, Korra and Tonks, while she pursues her studies in Veterinary Technology.
