My name is Tara Manning, and I have been at Country Lane since 2003. I began working as a veterinary technician and helping with weekend kennel. I then transitioned into inventory management and now have been the Office Manager since 2012; you can still find me fulfilling different positions throughout the hospital and I am always available to help you in any way that I can. In my free time I enjoy my time spent with my sweet precious baby boy Rylan, my Husband Kyle, our 5 dogs, family, and friends.
