Our Veterinary Team in Amesbury

Dr Joe Marchell Headshot

Dr. Joe Marchell

My name is Joe Marchell. I grew up in Hampton Falls, NH and attended Winnacunnet High School, University of Vermont, and Washington State University for my doctorate. I come from a family of veterinarians. Both of my parents practice on the seacoast; Dr. Frank Marchell at Piscataqua Animal Hospital in Kittery, ME and Dr. Cindy Wojcicki at Merrimac Valley Animal Hospital in Amesbury, MA. Professionally I enjoy dermatology and internal medicine. Outside of work I’m interested in music production and weightlifting.

Dr. Cynthia Wojcicki

Dr. Cynthia Wojcicki was born in Amesbury, MA. She attended Amesbury public schools and graduated from AHA where she was very involved with music, singing in the church choir and playing clarinet and saxophone in the band. 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, she attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. After graduation, she went on to Cornell, graduating with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1987.  She then went to work in Salisbury, Portsmouth, and Kittery 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 has 2 children and of course a family of dogs and cats.  When not at work, she enjoys interior design, sewing, skiing and volunteering with the Hampton Falls Historical Society.


Dr. Serena Sutka

Dr. Serena Sutka has known she wanted to be a veterinarian since she was ten years old. After high school she attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst and received her Bachelor of Science in Animal Science in 2010. She then went on to graduate from Tufts University in 2014. She has a special interest in surgery, pain management, as well as feline friendly and fear free protocols.

While Dr. Sutka is a self-proclaimed crazy cat lady, in her spare time she loves to travel, paint, knit, sew, hike, run and do yoga. Bonus if it’s beach yoga!


Dr. Kara Radzinski

Dr. Kara Radzinski grew up in Durham, NH before relocating for her Bachelors degree in Biology and Chemistry at the College of Wooster in Ohio. She fell in love with the Midwest and decided to stay longer, pursuing her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. While in Madison, she became heavily involved with the local House Rabbit Society and helped fund her studies by working as a veterinary assistant at a small and exotics animal hospital. In 2019, Dr. Radzinski moved back to New England and has loved continuing to work with all kinds of animals -- whether scaly, feathery or fluffy!

Outside of work, Dr. Radzinski enjoys competitive board games, spending time with her husband and daughter, and desperately trying not to kill her plants.
