WHO WE ARE
DR. LISA LIPPMAN
Growing up in New Jersey, Dr. Lisa developed a passion for helping animals. She set forth into the world to become a veterinarian on a mission. Dr. Lisa completed her undergraduate degree at Syracuse University with a major in public relations and a concentration in biology. She then completed a rigorous pre-med training the University of Pennsylvania. After graduation from Western University Health Science's College of Veterinary Medicine, she performed an internship at Bluepearl Veterinary Partners in New York City. Following the completion and sleepless nights of her internship, she wanted to make NYC her home. Determined to offer pets a gentler kind of veterinary service, she organized Vet's in the City. Understanding how stressful going to the veterinary office has on pets, she decided to begin her professional journey as a house-call veterinarian.
Her hands are in everything pet related. From talking to Dr. Oz about pet safety tips to conducting pet first-aid and CPR first response classes. Dr. Lisa belongs to the board and is the Medical Director of Animal Light House Rescue, whose mission is to help homeless animals of Puerto Rico find forever homes. In addition, she also co-host an the hit podcast called "We Don't Deserve Dogs" with her life partner Richie Redding.
With her influential presence on social media, she provides tips and advice for pet parents and has become the veterinarian to many Instagram famous pets. Dr. Lisa Lippman is particularly devoted to increasing the awareness of mental health in the veterinary field. She decided to join forces with Clara Grant, a licensed Veterinary technician creator of Skoop inc. As important it is for pets to have a veterinarian, its just as important for a veterinarian to have strong nurses who can deliver recommended care appropriately. Together, they have become a dynamic duo in this growing industry.
CLARA GRANT, LVT
Director of Nursing Care
Born and raised in New York City, Clara always had a love for animals. Undecided of whether to pursue a career as a veterinarian or veterinary technician, she decided to take a job at the Animal Medical Center. For her, it was a wonderland exposing her to all the possibilities of veterinary medicine. Shortly after employment, she decided to become a veterinary nurse. She fell in love with the aspect of delivering the care recommended by a veterinarian and having that one-on-one contact with her patients. After graduating from LaGuardia Community College in 2007, she continued to excel at The Animal Medical Center. She became the Operating Room Coordinator in 2008, but quickly learned she had a desire to become great at anesthesia.
In 2010, she accepted the role of surgical anesthetist at Bluepeal Veterinary partners. Within six months she became Lead Surgery technician. Her love for anesthesia and training lead her down a path where she became the most trusted technician in Bluepearl. Clara loves to train and educated new technicians and even doctors on anesthesia. This is where Dr. Lippman and Clara first crossed paths. Unbenonst to them, they would become the best dynamic duo of veterinary care in NYC future to come.
Similar to Dr. Lippman, Clara witnessed the price of mental health for the technician arena and the deficit of support there is for pet parents after their pet leaves the hospital. She decided to begin a service called Skoop inc, which helps pets receive the medical support they need after discharge from hospital.
