Our Herndon Veterinarians
Dr. Kristan Gutowski
As a young girl, Kristan Gutowski and her closest friends were fascinated with breeding hamsters—so much so that Kristan’s mother had to put a stop to it when she realized there were nearly 50 hamsters living in her basement! Kristan’s fascination with pets and wildlife set the stage early on for her dream of becoming a veterinarian when she grew up.
Dr. Janna Giaimuccio
At first, Janna Giaimuccio thought she would study human medicine, but that changed during high school when she volunteered at her local veterinary hospital. Having grown up with dogs in the family and seeing the remarkable changes good veterinary care could bring to an animal in need, Janna realized veterinary medicine would be the perfect fit for her life and career!
