Siobhan Burke, VMD
Dr. Siobhan Burke has been with Driftway since July of 2011 and recently became the owner of the practice. She received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in 2009, and was awarded a Business Certificate from the Veterinary Business Management Association. She is certified in Veterinary Chiropractic (CVCP) and Veterinary Acupuncture (CVA). She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association.
Dr. Burke completed her undergraduate work at Northeastern University, where she was in the Honors program and earned degrees in Behavioral Neuroscience and Biology in 2004.
Her particular interests are combining traditional medicine with holistic alternatives, and she feels lucky to have worked at a holistic veterinary practice in New Jersey before joining Driftway. She is also hoping to be very involved with our local community, and serves on committees for the upcoming Scituate Dog Park, and soon for the Scituate Animal Shelter.
Dr. Burke is the mom to two young daughters, and an Australian cattle dog. She also enjoys gardening, painting and photography in her spare time.
Victoria Morgan Salvatoriello, DVM
Dr. Victoria Morgan Salvatoriello joined the Driftway Animal Hospital team in April of 2013. She is a 2011 graduate of the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine and a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Dental Association. Dentistry, and weight management are her areas of professional interest.
Dr. Salvatoriello is a native of Cohasset, MA and 2005 Magna Cum Laude of Union College, where she was a double major in Biology and Computer Science. She says her college advisor encouraged her to study to become a veterinarian.
"We had an in-depth discussion on what I wanted to do with my life. I expressed my desire to be a vet but was too scared of the responsibility and being faced with painful scenarios. He gave me the encouragement necessary to pursue my dream," she says.
Dr. Salvatoriello says "helping bring pets and their owners closer together through optimal health and longevity" is the most satisfying part of being a veterinarian. She recalls working closely with an older cat that lost a leg following a serious illness. "Seeing the client and pet every day or so during the healing and rehabilitation process was hugely rewarding. This very brave kitty made an amazing recovery that brought joy to everyone involved," she says.
She enjoys spending time with her husband and young son along with her Brittany, Kassidy, and Papillion, Isabelle. Her pursuits outside the office include hiking, geocaching, biking, snowboarding, skiing, needlepoint, yoga and photography.
Lisa Kimball, DVM
Dr. Lisa Kimball is a 2005 graduate from Cornell University's College of Veterinary Medicine. She joined the Driftway team in 2014 and has loved developing relationships with the patients and clients that make this hospital such a joy to be a part of.
Dr. Kimball takes great pride in giving her patients the care and attention that comes from a life-long passion for veterinary medicine. As a child she grew up under the wing of her father, also a veterinarian, working in his hospital in Cornwall, New York. She started watching him perform surgery from the time she was 3 years old, then worked as a kennel attendant and eventually as a technician before heading off to vet school.
Dr. Kimball has a strong interest in soft-tissue surgery and all areas of small animal general medicine. She is raising her three children and various pets with her husband, Sam, yet another veterinarian! In their spare time they enjoy music, boating, traveling and cooking.
