  • Dr. Elizabeth Kathryne Daniel – Owner/Veterinarian

    Dr. Daniel, or Kathy as she’s introduced herself to you I’m sure, is our Owner and Veterinarian. She’s originally from West Texas and received her Bachelor’s degree from Texas A & M, then received her VMD at University of Pennsylvania. She currently resides in Media with an amazing close-knit family (7 grandkids!), a German short hair pointer, a shih Tzu and a cat. Dr. Daniel’s favorite part of her career and business is being able to interact with her clients (we know how chatty she can get J), conducting surgery and meet all the wonderful dogs and cats our clients have! 

  • Jillian – Practice Manager

    Jillian has been with 4 Paws in various capacities for 10 years now, starting out in the summer and time between semesters during University. She has a Bachelor’s of Science Honours from University of Guelph and various certifications for working with Laboratory animals.  She is often mistaken for Sarah, one of Dr. Daniel’s daughters, although we promise they are in fact not the same person! Originally hailing from Springfield, with a brief stint in Ontario, she now lives in Kennett Square where she helps out with the hobby farms her family members have started - dogs, cats, goats, chickens and even a mini horse! If she’s not at 4 Paws, you can most likely find her at a concert or a flyers game! 

  • Pete – Senior Veterinary Technician

    Pete is the familiar face around 4 Paws as he’s been with us for over 10 years now! Born and raised in San Francisco, Pete now resides in Havertown with his three cats Amelia, Pico and Zeke. Pete is an avid aviation enthusiast, and even holds a pilot license for both single and multi-engine aircrafts and was an acrobatic pilot. Pete is also a huge music buff and still DJs in his spare time. Pete loves all animals and working at 4 Paws especially with the amazing feeling he gets when he knows our client’s pets are cared for to the highest degree. 

  • Lorraine – Surgical Coordinator/ Senior Veterinary Technician

    Lorraine is our seasoned tech at 4 paws with over 15 years of experience in various hospitals over the years. Originally from Newark, Delaware she currently resides in Glenolden with her crazy boxer Jonsey. She’s only been with 4 paws for just shy of 3 years now, but she’s made a vital impact with the care of all of the pets we see by being one of our Senior Veterinary Technicians but also our Surgical Coordinator. You might not always see her in the exam room, but we can guarantee you’ve talked to her on the phone (at least) a few times – she’s full of good information and advice! 

  • Ashley – Veterinary Technician 

  • Krista – Veterinary Technician

    Krista is the blur that you see running around at all times in the hospital – she’s always doing everything she can for our clients and their pets. She’s been with 4 Paws for about 2 years now and loves the feeling of helping all of the pets that walk through our door and how grateful our clients are for the care we give their pets. She is originally from Upper Darby, but currently resides in West Chester. She loves reading, watching Fixer Upper, photography and spending time at the beach. She has a goofy Staffordshire Terrier named Stella and a dopey German Shepherd named Koda. 

  • Kristine – Veterinary Assistant

    Kristine is our newest smiling face at 4 Paws! Not only is she incredibly genuine and has a big heart, but she’s quite crafty – you may have caught her on CNN for her Eagles cape she made to celebrate the big win in February! Crafts, music (especially Hans Zimmer), movies and reading are her hobbies when she’s not running around 4 Paws. She is originally from Kennett Square but currently resides in Wilmington, Delaware. Kristine is a huge believer in spreading love instead of hate in order to achieve the best results and that includes her work with animals; every animal deserves love and respect and Kristine thoroughly enjoys providing that for all of the pets we see in our hospital. Kristine has two cats Niles (sometimes better known as “Grumpy”) who is in the photo here and Godzilla.
