Tammy Maher

Customer and Technical Support

Tammy started with VIN in 2008 as a content coordinator and now spends a majority of her time helping the eVetSites members get the most out of their websites. She enjoys her role with tech support, specifically, providing orientations to our members. She's learned lots of tips and tricks over the years and would love to share them with you! Like the rest of the team, she enjoys providing support in each step of the web building process - there is no question to big or small - if she can't answer it for you, she will find the person or resource that can best help you. When she's not working with the eVetSites and VIN teams, she enjoys spending time with family, friends, and their human and fur babies.

Crystal's college background in Graphic Design and Advertising makes her a great fit for the eVetSites team. She started helping practices to customize their websites in January of 2010. She also builds new templates for eVetSites members, helps with tech support when needed, completes content transfers, and much more. She lives in Indiana and is a mother of 2 teen boys (Austin & Michael) and 2 fur babies (Rothy the Basset Hound, Tiger Kitty). In her free time she loves to do photography and couponing. Her Basset Hound Rothy loves the camera and you will find many of her images in the image banks for use on your eVetSites website. Her goal is to make every eVetSites website the best it can be!

Christpina Vue

Customer and Technical Support

Christpina recently started with eVetSites in the middle of 2018. Before she became a part of our team, she worked at a 24 hour Pet Emergency and loved seeing all kinds of different pets. She has owned or still owns, a school of fish (freshwater), dogs, cats, and a hamster. Because of her love for animals, she created her own blog/website to share her knowledge of being a responsible pet owner. She's especially obsessed with dogs and can distinguish almost all dog breeds. If you don't see her with her American Eskimo/Husky mix, she's either exercising, spending time with her family, or reading.

Michael Johnson

Michael has been working in the veterinary community for over 30 years, the last 12 years with the Veterinary Information Network. A native Californian who now lives in St. Louis with his family, his wife Laura, his daughter Makenzie, his son Adam (away at Furman University) and 2 furry kids. Michael travels for VIN and the many veterinary conferences that VIN attends, and sometimes the newest member of his family Wallace the Corgi travels with him to the shows.

Russell McGinnis

eVetSites Developer

Russell has extensive experience at building and supporting enterprise software solutions and in 2018 returned after spending 4 years as the CIO of a renewable energy startup. Prior to that position he worked as the Technical Architect and Development Supervisor at VIN. Russell sports an accent hailing from Scotland, but has lived with his wife in the USA for over a 3rd of his life. The addition of 2 children, a dog and 2 cats along the way has helped mellow him out, just a little.

 

Anthony Bartels

Customer Support

Tony is a 2012 Colorado State University graduate from the combined DVM/MBA program and does his best to support eVetSites, VINx, veterinary students, interns and recent graduates on VIN.
