BRIANA MESIAS

Briana always had dreams of being a veterinarian since the age of 5. She has always had a passion for rescue animals and wildlife and wishes to work with all kinds of animals....exotic, aquatic, wildlife, large and small. Briana is currently pursuing that dream by attending UConn, and is both an Animal Science and a Business Management major while joining the Bloomfield Animal Hospital in May, 2018. She hopes to one day open her own clinic, rescue group, and conservation group while also traveling and helping animals in need. Born in New Jersey, Briana was raised and currently lives in Hartford, CT. When she is not studying or working, she enjoys spending her free time watching movies, playing volleyball, exploring new places, spending time with her two dogs ( a mix breed and a Siberian Husky), and hanging out with her friends.


RANDY LaVIGNE

With an accounting degree from UConn, Randy has been managing the business side of the animal hospital for his wife and hospital owner, Dr. Andrea Dennis, since its inception in 1992. This proud Husky also had a distinguished athletic career while at UConn, having been a captain of both the basketball and baseball teams during his senior year. In basketball, Randy was an All-New England guard who helped the Huskies get to two NCAA tournaments, including a Sweet Sixteen. In baseball, Randy was an All-American outfielder, and helped lead the Huskies to the College World Series. Upon graduation, Randy was a 7th round draft pick in the Chicago Cubs organization where he played five seasons. He is now on a new team.
