Harlem Valley Animal Clinic - Our Staff



Kathy is a long time resident of the Hudson Valley. She graduated from Delhi University with a degree in Veterinary Science Technology. She then became a Licensed Veterinary Technician. She has worked at a number of Veterinary Hospitals gaining a wide range of knowledge and expertise in the care and nursing of animals.  Kathy is an integral part of our team who has been with us since 2004. She promotes the highest standard of care for her patients as she continues to educate herself in this ever changing field of medicine.

 Away from work her interests include horseback riding and kayaking. We would be remiss if we did not mention her love for music and the wide range of knowledge that comes with it!

Congratulations to Kathy on her retirement on 12/31/20. She has meant so much to us here that it is just impossible for me to erase her from our web page!!!



Cortney lives in Dover Plains with her significant other, Yahavy and their precious daughter Spirit. She has a little black cat named Freya and a new addition to her four legged family, Bagheera, for those of you familiar with the black panther in Junglebook.

 In her free time she enjoys traveling and spending time with her family. And she has  also received her attunements in Reiki healing.


Donna was a long time client of Dr. Sebetic’s before she began working at HVAC in 2007. She helps out caring for the hospitalized and boarding animals. She has a very caring and empathetic way of making sure that each animals’ needs are being met.

Although Donna has tried to retire we keep pulling her back in because of her immense love and caring she has for all the animals, and we love HER for that!!!!  She enjoys gardening, sewing, dancing and spending as much time as possible with her family.
