nina-beyer

Dr. Nina Beyer, VMD

At age 11, Nina Beyer decided that she wanted to be a veterinarian; she had always been ”animal-crazy,” according to her family, and her interest in health care came from her mother, a nursing educator. After graduating from Penn State, she attended veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania, receiving her VMD degree in 1987. After a year in northern New Jersey, she joined Greenfields Veterinary as a junior associate; she became junior partner in 1999, and bought out the senior partner, becoming the sole owner of Greenfields, in 2006.

Nina became involved in greyhound rescue in 1992; over the next several years, she spayed or neutered hundreds of greyhounds on their way to new homes. In 1994, she was finally able to adopt her own greyhound, a wonderful dog named Zoe. She has also adopted 3 rescued Italian greyhounds over the years; this toy breed has become popular in pet stores, which means puppy mills. Nina currently shares her time with another greyhound, Juniata, and her horse, Skorri, and she shares her home with a wonderful elderly cat named Jessie. She sings in a choir, reads voraciously, and bakes as often as she can.

Dr. Kirsten Burg, DVM

Dr. Burg is originally from right here in Gloucester County.  She has always had a love of science and medicine.  She earned dual Bachelor’s Degrees in Marine Science and Biology from Coastal Carolina University.  During her undergraduate years, her mom mentioned that she could meld her deep love for all animals and biology into a single pursuit of veterinary medicine.  After taking a position as a technician at a busy small animal and exotics practice, Dr. Burg fell in love with veterinary medicine and proved that your mom is always right!  She switched career paths and earned her DVM degree from the University of Florida.  Dr. Burg’s main veterinary interests include dentistry, oncology, and client communication and education.  She particularly enjoys her geriatric patients and their extraordinary and historic bond with their families.

In her free time, Dr. Burg enjoys spending time with her husband and son.  They share their home with Mally, a rescued Pit Bull Terrier and Stitch, the Bearded Dragon.  She is also an avid reader, baseball fan and beach bum.
