OUR VETERINARIANS

 

Dr. Nikki Graham
 

I grew up on a small farm in Bloomington, Indiana.  My early years were spend surrounded by animals, and I always knew that I would someday become a veterinarian.

 I attended DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, and graduated with a B.A. in Zoology in 1981. I then graduated from veterinary school at Purdue University, and moved to New Jersey in 1985.  I originally thought that I would spend a year or two in New Jersey, but I'm still here! (and loving it!)  On August 1, 1989, after 4 years of veterinary practice in New Jersey, I opened the Nottingham Animal Hospital.

 My husband Joe and I are the parents of 3 children:  Joe (26), Abigail (24), and Amy (22).  We are caretakers for our crazy terrier mix, Bridget, Abby's adorable dog Jessie, and our 2  kitties, Finn and Duncan. 

 I think veterinary medicine is the greatest career in the world.  Every day is different; every day brings new challenges and interesting cases.  I enjoy treating internal medicine cases and geriatrics, and I particularly enjoy interacting with our patients' owners, many of whom I consider friends.

When I am not at Nottingham, I spend as much time as possible with my family.  My son Joe currently lives in Arizona, and is a cook. My daughter Abby graduated from Mount Holyoke College, and will be attending law school in the Fall of 2023. Amy is a recent graduate of  Hofstra University, where she won 3  National Championships with the Hofstra University Dance Team. When I am not at work, I can be found reading, knitting, or dreaming of traveling.

 

Dr. Laura Collins

I was raised in Brooklyn, NY, where after serious deliberation, I chose veterinary medicine as my career at the age of 4. I was raised in a house full of dogs and cats, who were my best childhood friends. I started horseback riding later and added them to the list of animals I love.

I have been practicing in New Jersey since I graduated from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1991, and in addition to working in private practice I have worked as a shelter veterinarian since 2004, when I joined Tabby’s Place, A Cat Sanctuary. I enjoy helping all animals, but especially am honored to be able to help the most needy cats, who have no owners, at Tabby’s Place.

I am married with a 22 year old son who graduated from  TCNJ. Christopher’s upbringing has been a little different, and he grew used to watching me bottle feed orphan kittens and take over the spare bathroom as a makeshift cat hospital for strays and foster cats. My husband and my son have helped me on quite a few occasions with some of these cats (and occasional dogs), and even my own three cats endure the parade of fosters with tolerance.

I view one of the most important responsibilities of my job in private practice as the education of my clients. I am always willing to answer questions and discuss the reasoning behind my recommendations. Because my patient’s care rests in the hands of their owner, I want my clients to fully understand their pet’s condition and how best to keep their pet healthy.

Thank you for the opportunity of caring for your pet!

 

Dr. Kristen Miller

I am from central Pennsylvania, and completed my undergraduate degree at West Virginia University in Animal Science. I then graduated from The Ohio State University School of Veterinary Medicine in June 2000.

I spent the first few years as a veterinarian working in a small animal 24 hour hospital in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. After moving to New Jersey, I worked at an emergency hospital for two years. It was challenging to juggle an ER schedule while raising young kids, so I ventured out doing relief veterinary work, which led me to Nottingham! 

Currently I have two dogs, both rescues, Sampson (4) and a new puppy; and 2 cats , Lucky and Buttercup. I am married and have 2 children, JT who is 14 and Kamryn who is 12.  When I’m not working I enjoy watching my kids' sport activities, spending time with my family in Pennsylvania, and dabbling in a network marketing side gig.

  

 

  
   

Dr. Kelly Dunham

Dr. Dunham graduated from Ross University in January 2015 after completing her clinical rotations at the University of Illinois.  After this she went on to work as an associate veterinarian and later a chief of staff for Banfield, before joining IndeVets as the area medical director for New Jersey and New York.  It is through IndeVets that Dr. Dunham is able to share her passion for medicine and high medical quality with the clients and patients at Nottingham Animal Hospital. In her free time Dr. Dunham enjoys snuggling with her cats, Panda and Pineapple, and hiking with her husband Steve and her adorable pup Peanut.
