Darcey-150x150 Veterinary Technicians and AssistantsDarci Corrigan, Senior Manager and ICU Manager

Miss Darci Corrigan quickly worked her way up through the ranks at her prior employer and came to Middlesex County Animal Hospital when first opening over a decade ago.  Darci has demonstrated a fierce work ethic, love for the patients, and a thirst for learning everything about veterinary medicine.

In just three years she was promoted to veterinary technician status and became the heart and soul of the hospital’s diagnostic team. She has since been promoted numerous times and is now the senior manager in addition to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) manager. Her primary interests lie in the areas of radiography and ultrasound, but she always welcomes the opportunity to broaden her veterinary knowledge. Having a lifetime love of animals, she knows this is right where she is meant to be! Outside of the office she loves to hike, go to the gym, and visit family in different areas of New England. When at home, she enjoys cooking and spending time with Chuck Norris, her Pug.

Jayna has always been extremely passionate about animals and knew she wanted to join this profession early in her adolescence. In the past, she has thoroughly enjoyed being a foster mom to fur babies in need, one of which turned into a “foster failure” as she was too attached to let go. She shares her home with Vastra, her Bearded Dragon, Franklin the cat, Theodore the rabbit, Penelope the Sun Conure, and Dexter, her Pomchi pup. While outside of work Jayna enjoys doing anything outdoorsy such as hiking or camping, in addition to sitting down to read a good book!
