His practice is limited to dermatology, seeing cats and dogs with chronic ear problems, severe allergies, cutaneous cancerous conditions and immune mediated skin problems.

Kaylee McPhail, CVT, Dermatology Technician

Kaylee graduated from North Shore Community College in 2015 with a degree in Veterinary Technology and became a CVT in 2016. She joined Angell shortly after and worked in Inpatient services, eventually moving to the Critical Care Unit caring for intensive care patients. Prior to Angell, Kaylee worked at an animal shelter in her hometown and as a groomer’s assistant. Her passion for animal healthcare has led her to a variety of positions within Angell including Critical Care, Surgery, Anesthesia and now the Dermatology service. When not caring for her fuzzy, feathered and scaly friends here at Angell she can be found snuggling her oversized cat King George or hiking the trails in the woods of Dogtown.

Jenn Murphy, CVT, Dermatology Technician

Jenn began her career at Angell in 2013 as a Client Services Representative. After getting a taste for veterinary medicine, life brought her out to the Pioneer Valley in Western Massachusetts, where she continued to pursue her passion and finish her education, ultimately graduating from Holyoke Community College in 2016. Jenn received her certification later that year and worked as a general medicine tech in the valley before making her way to the Boston area in the summer of 2018. She jumped at the chance to rejoin the Angell team and became a member of the Dermatology Service. Jenn loves working closely with clients to help them best understand their pet’s health and feel empowered instead of intimidated. Jenn lives outside Boston with her partner, dogs, and small colony of reptiles.

She graduated from North Shore Community College in 2015 with a degree in veterinary technology and became a CVT in 2016. In October of 2017 Lyndsey happily joined the Angell Dermatology team.
