Julie Coen, Cardiology Assistant

Julie graduated from Florida Institute of Technology in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, concentration in animal behavior, and a minor in biology. Her professional career began at the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, FL where she was able to work with a variety of species- her favorite animal being a pygmy goat named Ferdinand. The birth of her niece brought her back home to Massachusetts, and ultimately, to Angell. Julie worked in Inpatient and CCU as an attendant for almost a year. She enjoyed working in a fast-paced environment, and the uncertainty of the next case that would come through the door. Following a brief time away from Angell to work as an animal control officer, Julie was very excited to return to Angell as a member of the Cardiology Team. On her days off, Julie enjoys watching the Food Network, training her dog, Sawyer new behaviors, and re-creating projects she finds on Pinterest.

John Grealish, Cardiology Assistant

John graduates UMass Amherst in fall 2020 with a degree in pre-veterinary science and hopes to attend veterinary school next fall. At UMass, he served as a teaching assistant for Dorset Sheep Management and Intro to Animal Science and Animal Management. He has 3 dogs at home; Daisy the blue heeler mix, Dakota the lab/wire terrier mix, and Denali the lab/pittie mix, and a 7 year old DSH cat named Cleo. John has also worked in the emergency department at Westford Veterinary Emergency and Referral Center as a technician assistant. In the summer of 2019, he had the coolest internship ever at Yellowstone Bear World where he worked hands on with black and grizzly bears among other species, and even got to bottle feed bear cubs every day! John is also a musician; primarily focusing on electric bass, and has toured North America multiple times playing in bands. He attended Berklee College of Music before transferring to UMass, and even got to share the stage with Boston music icons the Dropkick Murphys at Governor Baker’s inauguration party. John joined the Angell cardiology team in June 2020, and has loved working here so far, especially meeting the wonderful pets and clients and having the opportunity to learn from such amazing colleagues.
