Lynn Wimmer — Owner/Veterinarian

In October of 2005 I was fortunate enough to buy this veterinary practice. It is the perfect practice for me! I love working with our wonderful clients, their great pets, and my terrific staff.

In 2000 I graduated from the Virginia-Maryland Regional School of Veterinary Medicine (VMRCVM) at Virginia Tech. I loved the time I spent at VA Tech, which is located in Blacksburg, VA. The area is beautiful and the vet school is fantastic.

Family is very important to me—I have two beautiful daughters, Abby and Becca. They have spent many hours at the clinic with me as they have grown. Now that they are growing up and have school, friends and outside interests they are not at the office as often but they still love coming in when they can and helping to file charts, pull charts for appointments, let the technicians know when appointments are here, etc. They are true animal lovers and both intend to pursue careers with animals when they are older. We truly are a family practice.

Our family has many pets, most of them are rescues from one place or another. We are blessed to share our lives with 6 dogs, Birdie and Boots are both who-knows-what mixes – Suzie Q is a poochin, Woody is a cock-a-poo mix, Maisy is a lab/pointer mix, Jazzy is a terrier mix and Potter is another who-lnow-what mix; 1 mule; 2 ponies; 5 horses; 1 bunny; 4 barn cats, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck,  Dewey and Louie; and 1 indoor cat, Muffins, that are cared for by my daughters.

When I am not working at CCVC or busy with the girls I love to go trail riding and always hope to be able to fit in scrapbooking and crafting too.

Pets are an important part of our family. At CCVC we are dedicated to giving the very best care to your pets in a loving environment. We invite you to come and be a part of our client family.

Dr. Allison — Veterinarian

Dr. Allison and her family moved from Chattanooga, TN to Gettysburg in 2015 for her husband’s new job at the Seminary Ridge Museum. They have 2 daughters: Finley and Beatrix, 2 cats (Osci and Reese), a dog named Bailey, and a mare named Soleil. Time away from the office is spent proctoring online school for the girls and learning to sew while listening to audiobooks that are mostly comprised of humorous mystery novels.

Graduating from UTK in 2002, Dr. Allison has worked in a number of emergency settings as well as traveling to multiple clinics as a locum vet. Public health, zoonosis, and epidemiology are some of her top professional interests. She also has extensive experience in behavior management, physical therapy, and end of life care.

Finding a clinic like Carroll County Veterinary Clinic has been a dream and Dr. Allison is enjoying being a member of this close-knit group of caring and professional individuals.

Beki — Veterinary Technician

My name is Beki and I’ve been a technician here at CCVC since 2011.

I have an 15 year old daughter named Reilley and just got married in 2017!  We have 8 furry family members – 4 cats;  Tidbit who I bottle raised from a baby,  a 3-legged cat named Minus , Lucy and Oscar whom we adopted from CCVC. We also have a  rabbit, a long hair Chihuahua named Bonnie born in 2004 that I rescued from the Carroll County Humane Society, a Jack Russell / Yorkie mix named Molly who was born in February of 2011, a 2016 rescue mixed breed named Finn, and a 2016 beagle mix we rescued named Momma.

I have been working with animals since I was 14. I love working here at CCVC because the staff is like family. I look forward to meeting new clients and getting to know their furry babies!

Crystal — Veterinary Technician

I am Crystal and I am a technician here at Carroll County Veterinary Clinic. I have been working here since March of 2007 and love every minute of my job. I actually used to work at CCVC before Dr. Wimmer bought the practice and decided to come back because I loved it so much. Before beginning my career I took the veterinary assistant course at Carroll Community College.

Meeting new clients and pets and maintaining relationships with established clients is so rewarding. Working with new people and animals—it is like having a huge extended family. I look forward to meeting all of our clients and getting to know each of their pets.

At home my family consists of my husband Jake and our two beautiful daughters, Alexis and Ella, who are my pride and joy. I am a dance and soccer mom to my girls. We also love playing disc golf, biking and kayaking. We have many four legged family members. We have 3 dogs, Phineas and Ferb, were both adopted from our local shelter. Phineas is a 2013 model golden retriever mix and Ferb is a 2015 model jack russell mix. Negan is our 2016 model great dane mix whom we adopted from a local rescue group. We have four cats; Bauer was adopted from a litter of kittens brought into the clinic in 2010, Hitch, who is so named because he only has three legs, Maleficent, a longer hair dilute calico who we adopted from the clinic in 2015 and Aurora (aka Beastie) who was brought into the clinic in 2014.  We also have 5 guinea pigs, Sven (who was adopted through CCHS), Stitch, Johnny, Kit and Kat. As you might imagine, our household is always interesting and entertaining.

Kathryn — Veterinary Technician

Hi, my name is Kathryn. I started out at CCVC as an intern in January of 2013, and then was hired in April 2013. I went to school at the Vet Tech Institute in Pittsburgh, PA where I graduated and I am now a certified veterinary technician. I am also mother to Waylon who was born in 2015 and Chase who was born in 2016.

I have a Black Lab / Basset Hound mix named Belle who is my partner in crime. Some people call me crazy for having so many cats – four tortie (tortoiseshell) cats named Maddie, Missy, Miranda and Mila, a Siamese mix named Maverick, but I love them all and they keep me on my toes.

I am happy to be part of the CCVC family and look forward to getting to know you and your pets.

Laura — Veterinary Technician

Hello, my name is Laura and I am one of the technicians here at Carroll County Veterinary Clinic. I have been employed here since November of 2004. The family atmosphere at CCVC makes coming to work just like coming to my second home. I truly enjoy working with all of our clients and their pets. I have been working with animals since 1987 and still love what I do. Every day there is something new or someone new to meet. Along with working as a technician, I also help with administrative duties here in the office.

I am married to a wonderful man and we have four beautiful children together. We also have two full-of-life Border Collies named Sam and Gyr and a cat named Oliver. I have also recently inherited an older dog named Beau who fits into our house very well as well as adopting a puppy named Maverick who is a border collie mix. When I am not here at CCVC I am busy running the children around to all of their after school activities. Camping with my family, reading and working in the garden are some of the activities I enjoy in my free time. I look forward to meeting you and your pet(s) and helping you care for them.

Marilyn — Veterinary Technician

Hello, my name is Marilyn. My love for veterinary medicine began with Carroll County Veterinary Clinic—as a client with furry family members who have chronic medical conditions. I have been passionate about animal rescue since childhood. I am an advocate for humane education, Trap Neuter Return, and I frequently foster orphan neonatal kittens for shelters and independently. I have five rescued feline family members: Kitt’m is a blind senior lady cat who I rescued as a young adult. Jethro, who I adopted from HSCC, is also blind due to scarring from a severe infection as a very young kitten before he was rescued. Wilder, who I rescued from LCAS when I found him as an extremely sick kitten suffering from Fading Kitten Syndrome, has severe chronic Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Smidgen, who I rescued after she was found as an orphan at just one week of age, also has chronic IBD. And finally, Meep, another FKS survivor who I adopted right here at CCVC where she was rescued. Those five are my whole heart. CCVC saved my fur babies’ lives on many occasions and they taught me how to keep my guys and my fosters healthy and thriving. That is a gift for which I will be forever thankful. Because of this vet med team I began a career as a Veterinary Technician in the winter of 2018. I also spent some time as a CSR in an emergency veterinary hospital. I was thrilled to join the team here at CCVC in the spring of 2018. I started here as a Kennel Tech/Vet Assistant. I love spending time bonding with our patients when they come to stay with us here at the hospital. I have since transitioned into a Veterinary Technician position here at CCVC. It is an honor to be a part of this gifted team of brilliant and compassionate medical professionals who I admire greatly. I am very grateful to have the privilege to serve our wonderful clientele and their fur babies.

Abby Wimmer — Veterinary Technician

Hey, my name is Abby. I am Dr. Wimmer’s oldest daughter and I am a senior at Westminster High School. When I graduate, I plan on continuing my education at Carroll Community College prior to attending the Virginia Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech. I would like to follow in my mom’s footsteps and take over the practice one day. I currently work as a technician here at the clinic. My family has many many pets, including cats, dogs, fish, horses, and a mini-mule. I recently adopted a puppy in August of 2020. His name is Ralphie and we are not entirely sure what breed he is, but he is 12 pounds of ridiculously cute fluff. He comes to work with me since he can’t be trusted at home so you may see him from time to time! In my spare time, I enjoy weight lifting. My goal is to compete in the national competition for powerlifting. I also enjoy riding my horse, Romeo. I am very happy to be a part of the CCVC family, and I can’t wait to meet you and your pets.

Becca — Veterinary Technician

Hi, my name is Becca. I am Dr. Wimmer’s youngest daughter, and I’m a junior at Westminster High School. I have been officially working at the clinic as a technician since the summer of 2019, but you could see me running around the halls for many years before that. I love every moment I spend here and helping your fur-babies feel their best is so rewarding. At home I have a dog named woody who in my not so biased opinion is the most adorable cock-a-poo. If I’m not at the clinic I’m probably riding on of my off the track thoroughbred, Martini. I compete in eventing and it’s my goal to eventually work up to the 5 star level and create my career out of it. I’m so happy to be part of the CCVC family and I can’t wait to meet all the clients and their babies.

Andie — Communications Officer/Receptionist

My name is Andie. I have worked for the Carroll County Vet Clinic since April of 2000 and I continue to love coming to work every day. No two days are ever the same. I answer the phones and check you and your pets in and out. I will also give you a call the day after your appointment to make sure your pet did well and answer any questions you might have and set up any appointments if needed.

I love all breeds of dogs and cats but my heart belongs to the BOXER. All the boxers in the practice know me and give me kisses and nubby wags! We try to know your family members and your pets and treat them like our own.

I have been married to my husband Walter since 2003. I have two grown daughters Dawn and Carrie. They have blessed me with seven grandchildren: Kendall, Kennedy, Kameron, Haylee, Garrison, Landon and Brynlee. Two of my granddaughters have given me four great-grandchildren: Kayden, Kassidy, Kaiser and Manuel. My family at home also includes Stormy – a red brindle boxer, Governor Weatherbe – a fawn boxer,  Captain Jack – a flashy red brindle and Calypso – brindle boxer. Emmitt is our newest boxer addition and keeps me on my toes. I love spending time with my grandkids and my dogs. I am sure I will be seeing or talking to you soon.

Albus and Remus

Hello! We are Albus (left) and Remus (right). We came to the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic in 2017 as adult cats that needed a home. We got along with Sam and Henry (the other two hospital cats) pretty well so we were invited to stay permanantly. We definitely love our “bro snuggling” as you can see from our picture. We’ve been together since birth so we don’t venture far from each other. It’s taken us a while to get brave enough to come out to the front rooms, but if you ever see us feel free to say “HI!” If you don’t see us all you have to do is open a bag of treats and we come running. Usually we can be found in the back lounging in one of our many beds together.


Meow, my name is Henry. I have been the hospital cat since 2012. Before finding my forever home here at CCVC I was a wanderer. Lucky for me I found my way into Dr. Wimmer’s barn one day. She saw that I was in need of some help and brought me to the office. First they scanned me for a microchip, but I did not have one. Next they took care of the matts in my coat. I had a funny haircut for a while but it felt so much better. I spent a couple of months getting use to everyone before I officially earned my title of hospital cat.

My favorite parts of the day include meeting people, playing with my toys in the hall, sleeping in multiple places around the office, and of course meal time. I have to be brushed every day which didn’t use to be something I liked, but I’m starting to enjoy it. A couple of months ago I wasn’t eating or playing as much so I started having laser therapy done once a week on my mouth for my stomatitis. It has helped to bring down the inflammation in my gums and now my appetite is much better. I have also recently been diagnosed and hyperthyroid so now I take medicine every day to regulate my thyroid. I’m a very good boy and like it in my food. I hope to see you next time you stop by!
