Our Imaging Staff
Dr. Hannah Evans, Veterinary Anesthetist
Veterinarian Hannah Evans, DVM, joined the VNIOC in September 2016, where she oversees anesthesia and the veterinary care of patients undergoing imaging.
Dr. Evans grew up in Pasadena, Maryland, and is happy to be returning to the area after receiving her DVM at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville School of Veterinary Medicine and completing her internship at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
“I fell in love with anesthesia at vet school when I was part of the anesthesia crew. I collaborated with other students and anesthesiologists to develop anesthetic protocols for each patient,” she explains. “I got to pre-medicate, induce, and intubate 1-2 animals daily, and monitored their vitals while they were undergoing the procedure. I found I wasn’t interested in doing surgery so I knew I didn’t want to do general practice. The opportunity here seemed ideal.”
Her family is equally happy with the move. “My parents live in Severna Park, and my two older brothers live in Annapolis and Jessup. We’re all big Ravens football fans, and we try to have Sunday get-togethers each week,” she adds.
Dr. Evans’ family includes her dog, Ellie, a golden retriever.
In her free time, Dr. Evans, who is a certified writing tutor, likes to write and read, and for stress relief, bake—something the staff appreciates.
Nicole, RVT, Imaging Manager
Originally from Cumberland, Maryland, Nicole started out as a CNA, as she had an interest in the medical field and taking care of people. After several years, she realized that animals were her true passion, so she enrolled in The Vet Tech Institute in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, graduating in 2010.
Nicole explored several areas of veterinary medicine, including working for in a general practice and in emergency medicine, then moved on to specialty medicine, which she feels is a great fit for her.
A lifelong animal lover, Nicole has three dogs: Stella, a 12-year-old Chihuahua mix, Burt, an 8-year-old English Bulldog, and Grace, a two-year-old Cane Corso mix. Nicole’s favorite pastimes include hiking with her dogs, going to the gym, and visiting family as much as possible.
DANNY, MRI TECHNOLOGIST
Danny “found” veterinary medicine through a long-time friend who worked for Dr. McDonnell.
“They had mentioned they needed a little help on Thursdays and I jumped on the chance,” he explains. “That was in 2012, and since then, I’ve been learning as much as I could about veterinary neurology as well as veterinary MRI. I started training in MRI once VNIoC was established as a company and haven’t looked back since. Today, five years later, I am the MRI technologist. I really do love helping animals and I hope as I continue to grow and learn I can help more.”
Aside from veterinary medicine, Danny enjoys training in martial arts, specifically Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, reading non-fiction, and spending time with loved ones.
