Tonya has found her work at Stoney Brook Veterinary Hospital very rewarding. She can use her outgoing personality, humor, efficiency, and pet experience to provide outstanding service for our clients and patients. She loves to be part of a team of kind and caring veterinarians and nurse technicians.

Mike Barskey joined the Stoney Brook team in June, 2019 after 5 years at SAVES, the emergency veterinary hospital in the Upper Valley. His focus is taking care of people while their beloved pets are being cared for by the medical staff. He started as a receptionist in the veterinary field when presented with the idea that 5-star hospitality could, and should, be provided for veterinary services - wouldn't it be great to enjoy visiting the doctor?!

"I like how well everyone at Stoney Brook works together for the common goal of keeping pets healthy and their owners happy. Skill level is high, communication is great, and everyone likes working here and with each other."

Mike has had dogs since he was a young child, but loves all animals. He moved to New Hampshire in 2008 and spends some of his free time playing tabletop and role-playing games with friends and hiking with his family, which consists of his partner, Brigitte, and their three cats and two dogs.
