 Margie Wertman (Office Manager) 

has played a key role at Town and Country Animal since October 1989.  Margie says, "Being raised on our family dairy farm in Sinking Valley gave me a great background to work for a veterinarian.  Although I didn't like milking cows much, I enjoyed being involved with other aspects of the farm. I helped with field work and crop work, and also with my clerical studies did all the bookkeeping.  One fall day in 1989, our friendly farm vet, Dr. Hershberger, stopped by the farm and offered me a position with his newly opened small animal clinic in Warriors Mark.  October, 2016, will mark 27 years of employment.  I married my best friend, George, in 1971, and yes, we are still best friends.  We reside near Warriors Mark, and have two children: Stacie Blair of Bellefonte, and Travis of Pittsburgh.  We have a little white dog, Luci (a Jack Russell "Terror", and ruler of the house).  We also have four "grand-cats" (Hocus, Pocus, Bella, and Chloe). My favorite things are RV camping and boating at Lake Raystown, but most importantly being with my family and enjoying the life that I am so truly blessed to have.
