Meet Our Veterinary Staff
Allow us to introduce the team that keeps Valley Veterinary Hospital running! Our veterinary staff here in Phoenixville is a diverse, multi-talented group, but they all share a love for animals and enthusiasm for helping others.
Client Communications and Front Desk
Richelle comes from a legal background. She has had a love for all animals since she was a child. While volunteering at a horse sanctuary, Richelle decided it was time to follow her passion and work around animals full time, and she hopes to complete her Canine and Equine Massage therapy certification. In her free time, she relishes hikes with her dogs and horseback riding. Richelle also enjoys watching Westerns, sports, and Gotham with her sons Zachary and AJ.
Kelly joined the Valley Veterinary team in March of 2015 as Lead Receptionist/Front Desk Coordinator. She has been working in the veterinary field since 2011, both in emergency and general care. Kelly was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area, and in spite of living in Pennsylvania for the past 25 years, still considers herself a California girl at heart. Kelly lives in Schwenksville with her husband, Robert, and their five dogs – Lily, Pepe, Lorelai, Juneaux, and Tony. When not at work, Kelly enjoys watching the antics of her Chihuahua pack and taking all the dogs for long walks on the Perkiomen Trail. Kelly’s favorite part of being a member of the Valley Veterinary family is witnessing the compassionate care shown to all pets and their parents, and of course, giving hugs and kisses to all our patients.
Kate joined the Valley Vet team in May of 2016 as a Client Care Specialist and Project Manager for the new facility at 1145 Valley Forge Road. She received a B.A. in Education from the University of Delaware and has experience in construction and management. Kate shares her home with her boyfriend Jon and their shy but sweet golden/chow rescue, Daisy. In her free time, Kate loves to travel, go to the beach, attend festivals, play with furry friends and search for the perfect grilled cheese sandwich.
Wanda just celebrated her 20th anniversary with Valley Vet! She started in 1997 and has been involved in every aspect of the hospital. Wanda is the glue that holds the office together. She loves to spend time with our clients and watch their two-legged and four-legged families grow along with hers. Her Valley Veterinary family is just as important as her own. Wanda shares her home with her family which includes two cats, Zena and Luna.

Our Furry Team Members
Our Furry Team Members
Minnie is Dr. Shreiber’s newest greyhound and is a giant love bug! Much like her older sister, Minnie is a sweetie who enjoys all the attention she can get. She loves pets and hugs, eating doggy ice cream and popping up to say hello to all of our clients.
Gracie is Dr. Shreiber’s first greyhound in command and is the leader of the office pups. She is super sweet and lovey! She can be found lounging around the office, snacking on doggy ice cream, and playing with her furry friends.
LT came to Valley Vet as a sickly, 8 lb. flea-infested kitty that needed medical attention and is now tipping the scales at 20 lbs! No, he’s not pregnant, yes, he is on a diet, but hey, he’s more to love! LT is the Valley Vet ambassador. He can be found wandering the halls at Valley Vet, joining you in an exam room or greeting you in the lobby. When he is not performing his social responsibilities, he is usually snoozing behind the front desk or begging for food (of course). Make sure to say hello to him while you are visiting our office. He definitely looks forward to the attention!
Daisy came from Home At Last Rescue and is the newest furry addition to Valley Vet. While she is timid, when she warms up she is cuddly, chipper, and full of tail-wagging energy! Daisy loves to come to work with her mom, Kate, and enjoys napping, eating lots of treats, and playing with her furry coworkers and friends!
When Troy is not at home or outside with his mom Nikki, he can be found chasing tennis balls and looking for treats around the front office. Troy recently passed his therapy dog international exam and is full of love and energy! He is ready to give you lots of wet kisses and will accept all of the belly rubs!

Cosmo was a charismatic greyhound who brought a lot of joy to the office for over 10 years. He was the pack leader, very intelligent, spirited, and full of energy and spunk. He loved chicken fingers and treats, naps with his sister Gracie, and had a special bond with Dr. Shreiber. Cosmo is missed by everyone!
Lucky was one of Valley Vet's most beloved friends. She was gentle and quiet and could be found cuddling in a small space or in the laps of the front desk staff. Lucky loved to visit new friends in the building, eat treats, and snuggle up for a nap. She is missed by all and will forever hold a place in our hearts!

Our little piggie Cookie had a fall last night. It was so easy to get an appointment to get her looked at. Dr. Shreiber was very patient in examining her. The office staff and assistants are also very compassionate people. Thank you for making our little Cookie feel better.
- Nick D.
The most knowledgeable vet we ever had. They do not push treatment on you, they work with you and the main priority is your pet.
- Gloria D.
Always a great experience. I was here yesterday after my dog was bitten by another dog and they took her back right away and eased my mind that it was only a minor flesh wound.
- Amy P.
I LOVE Valley Vet! They are always there for our pets and us too! We are proud to be Dr. Shreiber's 7th customer!!! They "GET" it there! All of them! We can not thank everyone at Valley Vet enough for everything!!!!!

I couldn't be more pleased with Valley Vet. From the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out, you know you are in great hands. Highly recommend VVH to anyone I meet!
- Stephanie W.
Thank you all for your wonderful support and care of my beloved Lilly. You made her and I so comfortable as we said good-bye. It’s never easy to let go of your pet, but even though my heart was breaking you took great care of her. I don’t know how you do what you do, but I appreciate more than you’ll ever know.
