Dr. Zimmerman-Lundt developed her love for animals while growing up in New Jersey.
As a child, she had a variety of pets including goats, rabbits, hamsters, gerbils and of course, cats and dogs. At the age of 5, she had already decided to become a veterinarian.
Prior to veterinary school, she attended the University of Maryland at College Park for graduate coursework and interesting research internships at the National Institutes of Health. She attended the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine from 1991-1995.
A one year internship at the San Diego Zoo after graduation led her west, but she returned to New Hampshire in 1996. During the many years that she has practiced in NH, she has gained valuable medical, surgical and management experience at a number of local veterinary hospitals.
Dr. Kristi is a member of several professional organizations including the American Veterinary Medical Association, the New Hampshire Veterinary Medical Association and the American Animal Hospital Association.
When not at the hospital, Dr. Kristi enjoys hiking, kayaking, scuba diving, antiquing, gardening, traveling and working out. She spends her free time with her husband Larry and dog Zurich. Life is good!
Dr. Holli was born and raised in Manchester NH. She attended UNH and received a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. From there, she attended the Atlantic Veterinary College and received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine on 2011. Since graduating, she has developed a passion for building a strong pet and client connection through general practice but loves every aspect of the veterinary field.
When she is not at the hospital, she enjoys spending time with her husband, son, twin daughters and their 2 animal kids: Finn and Huck. With any rare free time, you can find her buried in a book.
Dr. Steve grew up in New Jersey before deciding to attend veterinary school at Cornell. After graduating he worked at various practices and shelters in both Vermont and New Hampshire. He enjoys soft tissue surgery and feline medicine and is excited to build relationships with new patients and their families.
When not working Dr. Steve enjoys spending time with his family. He enjoys fantasy baseball and playing soccer. He recently started coaching soccer as well.
Dr. Marie grew up in Londonderry, NH and has loved all furry creatures for as long as she can remember. Unfortunately, her mother strongly dislikes animals and so growing up she was never allowed any pet larger than a guinea pig (of which she has had several). However, this did not dissuade her from pursuing a career in veterinary medicine.
Dr. Marie graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a B.S. in Animal Science in 2009 and from Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2014. It was during her undergraduate education that Dr. Marie first worked at Best Friends Animal Hospital as an assistant/ receptionist. After living in upstate NY for the last several years, she moved back to her home state in 2017 with her husband, Howard. They have 2 daughters, Lorelai born in 2017 and Halary born in 2020.
In addition to being a full-time mom, Dr. Marie works part-time at Best Friends Animal Hospital and is also an adjunct professor in veterinary technology for Medaille University. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the New Hampshire Veterinary Medical Association.
Although her favorite activity is spending time with her family, Dr. Marie also loves horseback riding, traveling, kayaking, and eating dessert!
