Our Team

Meet Our Team

Dr. Geraldine Cretacci

Owner

Growing up with pets most of my life has allowed me experience just how much meaning a furry little creature can bring to someone’s life, as well as the rest of their family’s. It is this strong impact that our pets have on us and us on them, that has driven me to do what I do. Being a veterinarian and having that privilege to help you make the best diagnostic and therapeutic decisions in caring for your pets is a role that I really enjoy and value. Whether it’s helping you welcome a new pet, preventative health care to keep your animal healthy, or assisting an old friend to pass with peace and dignity, my goal is to continue to make a positive difference in that human-animal bond that is very special to each of us in so many different ways.

As the new owner of March Animal Hospital, I am proud to say that we continue to have an exceptionally talented and dedicated team that continues to amaze me everyday. I have found my place and can’t think of a better way to spend my life doing what I love, with a team that feels the same way I do about our patients and clients!

I am a Chicago suburbanite that received her bachelor’s degree at Loyola University-Chicago and graduated from the University of Illinois School of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. I enjoy the rewards and challenges of veterinary practice and have a special interest in preventative medicine and animal behavior. In my free time, I love to pack in as many activities as possible with my husband, Braden and our adorable daughter, Bella. We especially love taking our dogs, Doris and Buehrle, on strolls through the neighborhood as our Chicago weather permits!

Dr. Beloiu

Veterinarian

Have you ever just sat and watched your pets or even wildlife and regardless of how long you observe them, you are completely fascinated? I can spend hours watching animals without ever feeling bored. This fascination is what led me to becoming a veterinarian. As a veterinarian, I can use my keen observation and knowledge to present all of the diagnostic and treatment options to a pet owner so together we can decide what the best option is for their pet. Keeping pets happy and healthy is my main priority.

I graduated in 1997 from the University of Agricultural Science and Veterinary Medicine in Bucharest, Romania. After working for 3 years as a Veterinarian in Bucharest in a small animal practice, I came to the United States in 2000 and finished the ECFVG program at Iowa State University to obtain my U.S Veterinary license. I have a special interest in holistic medicine and am certified for Acupuncture. I also utilize herbal prescriptions for my patients. I live with my husband, my wonderful daughter, my mother in law, and we have a fish tank.

Dr. Singleton

Veterinarian

At 5 years old, most kids bounce around and have dozens of different things they want to be when they grow up. I chose to become a Veterinarian and never changed my mind. As I grew up, my determination to become a vet always resonated with me because there is something so endearing about the bond shared between people and their pets. I stuck close to home and completed my undergraduate studies and vet school at Purdue University. Once I graduated I chose to set out on my own and move near Chicago. My three cats, Finn, Guy, and Ansel and my dog Twinkie made the move with me.

Cats have always held a special place in my heart, so joining the team at March Animal Hospital and becoming the feline advocate for the Feline Friendly program has been a perfect fit for me. In addition I love caring for senior pets and educating clients on animal behavior.

Kate

Practice Manager

Growing up on a farm in Wisconsin, I always had a love for animals and helping them. Whether it was saving strays or helping our local vet birth our pygmy goats, I was fascinated by working with animals. After attending college out West and spending over a decade in the mountains, I came back to the Midwest and landed at March. My background in culinary arts and radio broadcasting brings a rather odd set of skills that I hope rounds out my leadership aspect. At home, when I'm not harvesting plants from my garden to make teas and tinctures, I'm wrestling around with my three dogs, Arlo, Fannie and Olive. For those of you I don't already know, I hope I get the chance to help you or your furry friends!

Rachael, C.V.T

Nurse Manager

I love to work with geriatric patients, behavior challenged patients, and feisty cats! (Which are all cats, really). I grew up in Chicago. Graduated from UIUC in 2003 ditched med school and dived right into vet medicine instead. I sat for my boards (was grandfathered in) in 2009 and have continued my journey since. I have 2 dogs a chow, golden mutt mix and a chihuahua and a lovey 16 yr old orange dsh, a 6 yr old boy and a hubby. I love exotic patients as well! It was my dream to be something in the vet world ever since I was little, I then thought I was interested in human medicine but I found my life gravitating toward our furry family members. I love this journey it has taken me I can’t see myself doing anything else. 🙂

Emily

Nurse

The best part of my day is being able to put a smile on people’s faces and having a personal connection with the clients that come in every day. I also enjoy constantly being able to learn about the veterinary field. This actually led me to going back to school to become a certified veterinary technician, and now I work as a Client Service Representative and as a Veterinary Nurse.

My fiery Pomeranian mix, Mocha, and I both love to dance; some people say she is my little twin. I also enjoy going out with friends and spending time with my family.

Jackie, C.V.T

Nurse

I grew up with several passions including animals, music, and reading. After studying at the Vet Tech Institute at Fox College, I came to March Animal Hospital to start my career as a Certified Veterinary Technician. This field has taught me so much, and I love that I can continue to learn. I especially love assisting with surgical procedures. When I’m not at work, I enjoy relaxing at home, going to concerts, and caring for my guinea pigs and dog Roxy.

Katie

Nurse

Do you remember that kid that was always helping or finding lost and injured animals? That was me. I grew up doing everything I possibly could to take care of or rescue animals. I am fortunate enough to still be doing this. I began working at March over 14 years ago and I returned after graduating from Carroll University with a degree in Biology and Animal Behavior.

When I’m not busy caring for your pets, my own fur babies keep me very busy. Goose, a German Short Hair Pointer, and my horse Ella keep me on my toes. I also enjoy doing various outdoor activities, going out with friends, and watching movies.

Cathy

Client Service Representative

Over the last six years I have come to know almost all of the clients and patients that come through the door at March Animal Hospital. I love being able to watch puppies and kittens grow up with their families and knowing that I play a part in it.

I am joined at home by my dogs Dottie and Star and my three kitties Sammie, Floyd, and the infamous BOB! I love spending as much time as possible with my grandson and also going swimming.

Izabela

Client Service Representative

There are not many jobs that allow you to utilize all of your talents. I get to care for all of the animals in boarding, assist their owners while working at our front desk, and utilize my creative talents by taking photos of your pets and drawing messages on our lobby message board!

In my spare time, I like spending time with my family and friends. I also try to spend as much time as possible with my horse Axel.

Justin

Client Service Representative

After working in our kennel throughout college, Justin is now one of our full time customer service representatives. He graduated college from Loyola University where he studied Criminal Justice. In his spare time, Justin enjoys spending time with his dog Ace, camping, hiking, and volunteering with the Buddy Foundation. Justin is working on combining his schooling and his love for animals for a career in public service, but in the meantime, he loves being able to help all of our clients!

Meagan

Client Service Representative

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved animals and knew working with them was a passion I would always want to pursue. I’m excited for my new opportunity here at March! In addition to working with people and their beloved pets I am looking forward to learning as much as I can. When I’m not busy working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, but most of all my dog Scooby! Caring for people and their pets isn’t just what i do, it’s who I am.

Shana

Client Service Representative

I guess you could say that I can’t get enough of helping people because I have always loved working in customer service. When I’m not assisting you at March Animal Hospital, I enjoy spending time with my Shih Tzu poodle mix Oreo. I also enjoy reading, working on puzzles, going out to eat, and I can’t say no to a good movie, especially any DC comics.

Sam

Kennel Attendants

I started working at March Animal Hospital a few years ago and I truly enjoy being able to care for all of the animals that stay with us. I especially like spending time with pets that tend to be more shy so I can make sure they are as comfortable as possible. I live at home with my cattle dog mix, Oreo and in my free time I like going to shows and hanging out with my friends.

JoJo

I am also our kennel’s resident cat lady! I have two cats named Phoebe and Tinkerbell that I completely adore. I studied Humanities in college and I am currently taking more classes for Sign Language.
