Dr. Laura Koerber joined Old Town Animal Hospital in the fall of 2018 as a part-time associate. She liked the Old Town team and clients so much; she decided to join us full time in February of 2019. She grew up in New England and earned a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Biology from Plymouth State University in 1995. Her veterinary training started by working as a veterinary technician in a small animal practice in South Florida for three years. She then went on to veterinary school and graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from Colorado State University in 2002. Dr. Koerber completed a 13-month internship in small animal medicine and surgery from VCA South Shore Animal Hospital in Massachusetts in 2003. Before joining the team at Old Town, Dr. Koerber practiced as an emergency and critical care veterinarian in Pennsylvania, Colorado, and New Hampshire for a combined total of 15 years. While she enjoyed the excitement of emergency medicine, she has enjoyed getting to know and develop relationships with the patients and clients at Old Town.
Dr. Koerber and her husband live in Kingston, NH, with their beautiful 9-year-old daughter. They have two cats: Basil Pesto (an 11-year-old male Tuxedo DSH) and Saber (a 3-year-old male black DMH). In her free time, she likes to spend time with her family, watching movies/interesting TV shows, and relaxing.
Harry, a 13-year-old tripod cattle dog mix, also comes with Kendra. He loves coming to work every day although he spends most of the day sleeping in the office. In their free time, Kendra and Harry love going to the beach with the human and dog friends, watching Netflix, and hanging out with their nephew and niece.
Kayla is a 2020 graduate of the vet tech program at UNH. She joined our team in June after interning with us during her spring semester. In her high school years, she was a member of the cattle club and participated in cattle shows at the Topsfield Fair. Kayla also enjoys watching Netflix, playing darts, and spending time with friends, family, and cats Lilah and Shadow.
Dr. Chris Baker, DVM
Dr. Baker was raised nearby in Massachusetts, studied at Governor Dummer Academy then moved west to the University of Montana for his undergraduate degree. Returning east he worked at the Harvard School of Public Health. He then attended Tufts Veterinary School, graduating in 1987. After a few associate positions, he opened his own office in the Seacoast back in 1995. While enjoying working with others in larger multiple doctor settings Old Town Animal Hospital is a conscious effort to re-connect with clients. The small, intimate setting allows for direct communication, personal relationships, and quality care for your beloved pets. Dr. B. has three wonderful daughters and is still married to his high school girlfriend, Robin. He enjoys golf, skiing, gardening among a few hundred other things.
