Chris is native to Maryland and grew up around animals all of his life. On his 12th birthday, he asked for a dog that would be just his and that is exactly what he got, a shepherd-husky mix named he named Smokey. From that day forward he knew there was not going to be a time in his life without one. During college, he worked as a Veterinary Technician for Eastside Animal Hospital near Towson and hoped that one day he would be able to pursue a career working with a Veterinary practice. While Chris’ career led him down a different path during the past 20 years, he has now found the opportunity to fulfill his career dream. He is able to combine his great love for animals with his Business Management skills and bring that passion and commitment to Hoffman Animal Hospital. He looks forward to working with the team and building relationships with our clients and their pets.

During his free time, Chris enjoys spending time with his family and friends and traveling. He resides in Arnold with his family, and shares his home with 3 Collies – Winston, Maggie, and Fergus, a Shiba Inu- Keiko, and 4 assorted feline friends- Myles, Fynn, Ella & Gina.
