Elissa

Client Care Coordinator

Hi, my name is Elissa and I joined Dr. Durkee’s team this past April. I am originally from NJ but moved to Florida in 1999 and love it here. After owning and operating my own private investigation company for many years, I decided I wanted to do what I really love and work with animals. I was hired for a position at my vet’s office and I've been working for animal hospitals ever since! I also have two grown daughters; one is studying to be a wildlife rehabilitator and the other is a busy Mom that has blessed me with three beautiful grandchildren. I like to volunteer my “spare” time with various organizations; John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, Girl Scouts of America, Peggy Adams Rescue League and The Sea Turtle Conservation League of Singer Island. My boyfriend Steve and I currently share our home with 1 dog, 12 cats and 6 tortoises, the majority of which are rescues!
