Our Veterinary Team in Amesbury
Dr. Cynthia Wojcicki
Dr. Cynthia Wojcicki was born in Amesbury, MA and lived at the corner of Market Street and Fern Avenue until her family moved to Cedar Street in 1970. She attended Amesbury public schools and graduated from AHS in 1976. During these school years she was very involved with music. She sang in the choir at the Methodist Church, and at school she played clarinet and saxophone in the Middle School and High School concert, marching and jazz bands. In addition to her musical interests, she learned to fish at Tewksbury Pond, swim at Lake Gardner and ski at Po Hill.
After high school graduation, she attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Here she learned to balance work and fun. There were plenty of both during those four years. The work involved all the typical math, chemistry, physics, and biology classes needed to fulfill a degree in Zoology. The fun part of those years involved singing with the UMASS Chorale, attending athletic events, traveling to visit old friends at Boston University and UNH, and just hanging out with new friends. She graduated in 1980.
Since graduating with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1987, Dr. Wojcicki worked in Salisbury, MA, Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, ME before buying MVAH in 1998. She has worked very hard to make MVAH a practice of excellence and the award – winning hospital that it is. She enjoys all aspects of medical practice but has particular interests in dermatology, nutrition, feline medicine, business management and computers.
Dr. W has lived in NH since 1987. She has 2 children and several dogs and cats. When not at work she enjoys interior design, sewing, skiing and volunteering with the Hampton Falls Historical Society.
Dr. Susan O’Dell
Dr. Susan O’Dell grew up in Michigan, where she received her Bachelors Degree in biology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. She then graduated from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2007. Since her graduation she has been practicing small animal medicine in New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
Dr. O’Dell enjoys preventive medicine and is particularly interested in population control issues. She worked for an animal shelter in Puerto Rico and has participated in both large and small scale spay-neuter events in the United States and abroad.
She resides in Massachusetts with her family, two Satos (Puerto Rican mixed breeds) Brisa and Pincho. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her children, running, ice skating, and baking.
Dr. O’Dell is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA).
Dr. Alan Brus
Dr. Alan Brus is the newest veterinarian at our practice and joined the MVAH team in October 2018! He received his DVM from the University of California at Davis and completed internships at The Animal Medical Center in New York City and at Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital in Woburn, MA. He has a special interest in neurology and brings with him a wealth of knowledge to our team! He will be seeing patients Monday-Wednesday and on Saturdays, too.
When he is not at MVAH, you can find him making costumes and board games. At home, he has two cats of his own named Rascal and Mello.
