Tanya Christian, Practice Manager and Lead Technician
Tanya has been a part of the Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services team since our opening in 2009. She completed her education at Quinsigamond Community College and has earned the 25 Year Distinguished Service Award as a Veterinary Technician. Her pets include an English bulldog named Golumpki, an English Mastiff named Adney, 2 Toy Poodles named Bailey and Kera, a 12-year-old Border Collie mix named Penny, and 2 cats.
Her favorite part of working for Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services is that every day is a new adventure. She loves developing close relationships with the pet owners and being involved in all steps of caring for their pet during their visit. Tanya has worked in many facets of veterinary medicine, ranging from large animal and equine care to swine and small ruminants (goats and sheep). She is fearless with most species, except (shudder!) big birds like parrots and macaws.
Tanya has 4 daughters: Megan lives in Canada, Amanda lives in Southbridge, and identical twins Brittany and Natasha who also live locally. She also has a granddaughter Alexus and two grandsons, Max and Alex. Tanya enjoys gardening and hanging out by her pool in the summer. Some things you might not know about her are that she loves blues music; she worked with Dr. Mills when she was only 15 years old.
Natasha Day Christian, Veterinary Technician
Natasha has been a part of the Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services team since 2011. She recently graduated from Quinsagamond Community College, with an associate degree in deaf studies. Her pets include an English Mastiff named Stashu, a Border Collie Mix named Maverick, a Ragdoll cat named Caesar and a flock of backyard chickens. Natasha says her favorite thing about working at Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services is that every day is different, although sometimes that can be her least favorite thing too!
Natasha has three sisters, a niece, and two nephews. When she isn’t working, she enjoys rock climbing and hiking with her dogs. Something you may not know about her is that she has jumped out of an airplane on numerous occasions, and she has an identical twin.
