Our Team Leader

Dr. Jessica Smith Kidd


I am from Marietta Ohio, and knew I wanted to return home after completing my veterinary degree at St George’s University. Dr David Spindler gave me that opportunity at Green Meadow Veterinary Hospital and was a great mentor. As time went on, I got married to my husband Joe, and our family grew. I have three beautiful daughters that keep me busy when I’m not working. We have a French bulldog, Courtney, three cats, Tilly, Figs, and Ding, and four goats, Daisy, Buttercup, Sophia, and Dory. I am licensed as a veterinarian in Ohio and West Virginia. I am a member of the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA), the West Virginia Veterinary Medical Association (WVVMA), and the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP). This fall I am going to begin my training for veterinary acupuncture. I am excited to learn a new form of treatment for my patients to help with pain management, inflammation, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and other conditions. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Joe and I love music and take in several concerts each year. We also enjoy spending time camping in the summer.

Our Care Team

Dr. Marshall Aanestad


Hi, I’m Dr. Marshall Aanestad (pronounced “Honest-Ed”). I am a 2020 graduate of the Ohio State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and I recently joined the team in June. I’m a second generation veterinarian (my father practiced in Athens for 25 years). My special interests include Ophthalmology and Dermatology as well as working with the occasional sick farm animal.
I am a member of the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA), American Heartworm Society (AHS), the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP), and the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP). I also hold certifications in Low Stress Handling and RECOVER CPR Training.
Originally from Pomeroy, OH, I was happy to finally get out of the city back to Southeastern Ohio. My fiancé, Katie, and I have a dog and cat (June and T-Swift), but we’re hoping to get some chickens in the near future.


Practice Manager

I have been in management most of my life but am fairly new to the veterinary world. I’ve since discovered it is not only an interesting and unceasingly fluctuating environment, but I get to witness fascinating medical procedures and rescues daily. The staff here is wonderful to work with; they are dedicated, well trained, and personally invested in every single animal that comes through the doors.
I am married with two sons, am an avid beekeeper and part time musician, and share our home with dogs, cats, lizards, fish, and a small flock of chickens. I enjoy spending time reading, practicing instruments, hiking, kayaking, playing chess, and, of course, spending time with my family.

Debbie Haas


Hello, I’m Debbie.
I began working at Green Meadow Veterinary Hospital during the spring of 1981 and my responsibilities have changed over the years. I am currently employed as the office bookkeeper, but my tenure allows me to be versatile and help out where I am needed.
When I’m not working I enjoy cooking, and my co-workers enjoy the results of my time experimenting with recipes. I also enjoy collecting old cast iron items.
My family is important to me, and spending time with them is essential. My feathered and furry family welcome me home each day, including one bird, three dogs, and four cats.


Veterinary Assistant

I love my family – both real and extended. I love my pets, and most everyone else’s, too. I love my yard and the flowers there. I especially love to cook and bake.
My duties are veterinary surgery assisting, x-rays, answering questions when I can, and answering phones when needed.


Registered Veterinary Technician

My name is Loretta and I am a registered veterinary technician. I graduated with a degree in veterinary Technology from Brown Mackie College in Akron, Ohio and passed my national board exam in 2016. I’ve always had a passion for animals and knew that the veterinary field was for me. What I love most about being a veterinary technician is meeting clients and patients and making a difference in their lives – no matter how big or small.
Outside of work I enjoy playing video games, collecting retro video game systems and memorabilia, fishing, camping, and worrying if George R.R. Martin is going to kill off one of my favorite characters in Game of Thrones.



My name is Kelsey and I am a receptionist here at Green Meadow Veterinary Hospital. I enjoy working in a fast-paced environment and being able to play a role in helping families with their fur babies!I feel my role as a receptionist is very demanding and always keeps me on my toes. I like to be involved in the treatment of animals as much as possible and help out wherever I am needed. I enjoy meeting and forming relationships with all the wonderful clients and patients we have here at the hospital.
Outside of work, I enjoy cooking and baking for all my friends and family. I have three pets of my own, two dogs Trixie & Izzy and a kitty named Whiskey. I love to spend time with them hanging out at home and cuddling after a long day at work. I like to spend time outdoors hunting, fishing, and riding horses on my family farm. I have chickens at home and love being able to have farm fresh eggs daily! Animals have always had a huge impact in my life, and I love that I get to spend every day learning new things and meeting new pets.



My name is Joyce Bertram and I started working in July 2016 as a receptionist. I enjoy greeting our clients and their pets when they walk through the door and assisting them with their needs. I’m new in the world of veterinary medicine, and I find it very interesting!
My husband Paul and I have five children: Christine, Eric, Adam, Garret, and Matthew. We also enjoy our four cats: Buckeye, Phillip, Thomas, Amelia, and our turtle, Herbie.
I love watching my son Matthew play football, basketball, and track events. GO TIGERS!! My other children are adults and spending time and traveling with them as often as possible is precious to me.
I’m a huge Ohio State Buckeyes fan! I love watching the games with my family and friends. GO BUCKS!!


Veterinary Assistant

My name is Meagan, and I’ve been in the medical/veterinary field for over 20 years. I love helping animals and people. Currently, I am a receptionist and help pet owners with their questions and appointments.
While there is a lot to be said for keeping track of files and handling day to day transactions, I love the medical side of this fast-paced, crazy world of veterinary medicine, too! There is always something new and interesting to learn. It’s so gratifying to help critters feel their very best!


Support Staff

My name is Bill and I’ve been married to my wife, Denise, for thirty-five years and have lived in Marietta for most of my life. I have two daughters and one son that I am very proud of. I also have five beautiful grandchildren, and two more on the way. Rounding out my family are two dogs, Coop and Floyd. I enjoy listening to music and collecting it. I also enjoy going to concerts, playing guitar, creating pyrographic artwork, Ohio State football, and spending time with my family. It is a privilege working with the doctors and staff at Green Meadow Veterinary Hospital


Veterinary Assistant

My name is Danni Goman. I am a recent graduate from Caldwell High School and a future student of the University of Findley. My adventure with Green Meadow Veterinary Hospital started with job shadowing. I have loved it here so much that I just couldn’t leave. I am new here working as a veterinary assistant. I have always adored animals and my time at Green Meadow has encouraged my dream to become a veterinarian.
