Dr. Sheri Cassell, DVM - Veterinarian
After graduating from the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997, I moved to New Hampshire, and felt at home right away. I first lived and worked in the Seacoast area, and would come to the Mt. Washington Valley to play. In 2006, when the opportunity arose to take over this practice, I jumped at it—and every day I'm so glad that I did. I love veterinary medicine because I'm able to help animals live longer and happier lives with the people who love them. Although my areas of special interest include surgery and dentistry, I really love that every day I see something new and I 'm learning constantly. It's important to me to get to know each pet and its family as this enables me to respect that relationship and better provide what is needed. I spend my time away from CVH with my fabulous family enjoying all the fun the Valley has to offer.

She has practiced medicine in a variety of settings, including several zoos, animal shelters and of course small animal practices.
