Marissa Johnson


Veterinary Assistant


Marissa was raised from a young age to live in harmony with animals and nature, and has always been completely at ease with her four legged friends! Growing up in a household with both dogs and cats, some of Marissa's earliest memories are of tending to the household pets and making sure they were healthy and comfortable. This passion is what led to her realizing that working with animals was her dream!

Originally born in Florida, Marissa has lived most of her life in Connecticut and is currently enrolled in her last year of the Vet Tech program at Middlesex Community College. She's also a proud member of Phi Theta Kappa honor society and Vice President of the MXCC student chapter of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America.

Marissa joined the Manchester Veterinary Clinic team in August of 2018 after a short externship as part of her Vet Tech education, and she's so excited to add her skills to the MVC team!

In her free time, Marissa loves playing with her two dogs-Athena, a 7 pound Miniature Pinscher and Lady Venus, a 70 pound German Shepherd. She's passionate about dog training and has trained Athena to be highly responsive to conversational commands. Marissa's other hobbies include reading her extensive collection of leather bound books, spending time in nature, baking muffins for (fortunate!) family and friends, and assembling furniture from Ikea.
