Our Staff

Chris Miller

Chris grew up loving and rescuing animals much to the chagrin of her grandparents and father. As an adult while raising a family, Chris continued her love of animals and rescued many with her family’s support.

Chris became involved with the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County and worked there for several years. She has also been a part of many other rescues such as TNR of Warren and shelterpuppies.org helping with fundraisers and fostering animals.

In March of 2014 Chris joined the staff of Grand Valley Veterinary Hospital. She loves the staff she works with and the work environment at GVVH. Chris greatly enjoys the clients and helping to ensure their pets are taken care of.

Chris has many pets at home including eight cats, three dogs, and one foster cat, who all love visiting Grand Valley Veterinary Hospital.
