About the staff
My name is Sherri. I am the pet stylist here
at Four Paw Spa and Animals have always
been my passion. Starting from the age of
11 at my first job on a horse ranch, through
years of 4-H to working at a boarding
kennel, as a bather, with a dog trainer, with
multiple show dog breeders and right
through grooming school to now, my life has
always been about animals in some form or

In 1992 I graduated from Pedigree Career
Institute as an all breeds pet groomer.  
Later that same year I came here to
Merrimack Veterinary Hospital and have
been here since.

I consider myself to be one of those lucky
people who is able to get up every day and
do a job she loves. I have so many
wonderful, amazing clients and pets that I
have built relationships and bonds with. I
am also lucky to be surrounded everyday by
people here on staff who share my passion
for animals although we each do it in our
own special way.

When I am not working I enjoy cooking,
gardening, reading, politics and I may have
a slight addiction to the online game called
World of Warcraft. I am owned by a jack
russell terrier named Nicci who was rescued
here at this very hospital and our siamese
kitty named Samara.

     Lisa Darby
Groomers Assistant

Lisa Joined us in the spring of 2009. She was
interested in the position because she loves
animals of all kinds.  She has been amazing!  Lisa
really seems to have a knack with any dog that
she works with. In the time I have known her I have
never heard her even raise her voice. All the dogs
love her but most importantly, they respect her.  
We are all (dogs and humans) lucky to have her
around to help us.

Lisa shares her life with her human family, plus 3
dogs and 2 cats. She has a second job working at
another animal hospital where she works in the
kennel and is being trained as a veterinary

With the little free time Lisa has, she enjoys
watching sports and is a Celtics fan, gardening
and playing on her Blackberry.   Also I plan to
addict her this year to American Idol!
