  • Dr.
    Robert Berry
    Veterinarian/ Practice Owner
    Dr. Berry graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1977 with a BS degree in Animal Science. Because of an interest in food animal production, he began study and received his DVM degree from the University Of Florida College Of Veterinary Medicine in 1981. Having re-evaluating options following graduation, he started his clinical practice career at a local companion animal practice, the Glen Burnie Animal Hospital. Seeking a change of pace, a five year stint at the Emergency Veterinary Clinic (EVC) in Catonsville, MD followed his first practice association. After the EVC experience he worked as a relief veterinarian in several area practices before starting his own practice (Whetstone Point Veterinary Hospital) in the Federal Hill area of Baltimore, MD. Four years later he purchased the Animal Medical Center of Mount Washington. In 2005, the Federal Hill practice was sold and Animal Medical Center of Mount Washington, now rebranded and renamed, “The Village Vet”, became his singular professional object of interest. Numerous equipment, technology and physical plant upgrades have occurred and continue to be a part of the long term practice goal of providing quality companion animal care to the surrounding neighborhoods of Mount Washington Village.
  • Dr.
    Taylor Gaines

    I am Dr. Taylor Gaines. I grew up in Elkridge, went to college at UMBC, and then graduated from Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and a Master of Public Health. Now I live in Catonsville with my wife, my baby daughter, and our cute, energetic mutt, Mexi.

    My goal is to be the best veterinarian for you: meeting all your needs, answering all your questions, and giving you the attention and care you and your animals deserve.

  • Kendall .
    Practice Manager

    An advocate for animal welfare, Kendall began working at the Baltimore Zoo’s hospital and reptile house in 2002, focusing on husbandry and followed his zeal for animal health to The Village Vet in 2007. It is at this hospital that he has been able to learn from the excellent doctor staff and apply that knowledge to provide outstanding care for patients.  When not at The Village Vet, Kendall can be found at an art gallery or trying out a new local restaurant. 

  • Jen .
    Technician, RVT

    I was born and raised in Baltimore City.  I received my degree in Veterinary technology in 2001 and my path in veterinary medicine has taken me everywhere from teaching to now at The Village Vet!  I enjoy crafting, hiking and spending quality time with my family.

  • Nate .

    .I have been working in the animal field since 2014 while I was still in high school. I started as an intern and worked my way up. I've had the privilege over the years to work with some of the greatest veterinarians and technology. I'm proud to call The Village Vet my new home. While I'm not caring for animals, I can be found getting lost on some trails or watching movies with my furr babies. 

  • Diane .

    Diane came to our practice in March of 2022. She has her AAS in Veterinary Technology and being a Veterinary Nurse is her greatest passion. 

    Diane enjoys creating abstract art, hiking, drawing and painting. 

    Her furry friends at home include 3 cats, Cool Hand Luke, Notorious C.A.T. and Captain Beans.  We are very proud of all the hard work she does for our clients and her hospital family.

  • Sabrina .

    Hi, I'm Sabrina. I was born and raised in Baltimore, Md. As a little girl I always knew I wanted to help and care for animals. Since coming into the veterinary field in 2015 I have learned so much alongside many amazing techs and doctors.  When I am not taking care of your fur babies, I enjoy spending time with my 6yr old rescues, a chihuahua and pitbull and raising my 3yr old daughter. I also enjoy traveling, learning, and experiencing other cultures. 

  • Joey .

    Joey started in the Veterinary field in 2020 in a Baltimore veterinary hospital as a Pet Concierge. She wanted to continue her career in client services in a smaller volume so she joined the Village Vet team as a receptionist. With the gained experience, knowledge and love she has for each animal that walks into the hospital she has become a valuable employee. She has dogs (Mocha and Dino) and two cats (Charlie and Binx) so she understands the love and the worry clients have when it comes to their pets.

  • Jasmine .

    Since the age of 5, Jasmine had a love for animals. She would watch Animal Planet every day, her favorite shows being The Crocodile Hunter and Animal Precinct. Her dream was to become a veterinarian or an animal control officer. As she got older, Jasmine continued to study different animal breeds and would continue to strive to help animals. Whether it was helping a stray dog reunite with its family or orphaned kittens. After 10 years in the veterinary field and volunteering with local rescues, she decided to start Round Of A-Paws Pet Rescue. She now has one chihuahua, Pepper, whom you can find sitting on one of the desks in the hospital! She hopes to continue to spread her love of animals and help as many pets as she can.
