Heath McNutt

Dr. Heath McNutt was raised in New England and graduated from the University of Maine in Orono before attending St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine. He graduated from St. George's in 2010 and practiced in Vermont for 6 years before settling in the Seacoast area in 2015.

Dr. McNutt’s professional interests center around preventative care and management of chronic diseases.

In his personal life Heath enjoys spending time with his 4 children, gardening, wood working, hiking, and anything to do with the water.

Heath has been with us here at Village Veterinary Clinic since 2017 and in January 2019, along with his wife Dr. Amanda, took over ownership of the practice. They are looking forward to continuing the legacy of compassion and community started by Dr. Nazemetz in 1984.

Founder, DVM

The late Dr. Mike grew up on the family dairy farm in central New Jersey. He received his degrees from Michigan State University. After practicing in several clinics around New Hampshire, he and his wife, Ann Lee Hussey, LVT, established Village Veterinary Clinic in 1984.

He was an active member of the Rotary Club of Portland-Sunrise, he enjoyed volunteering in the community and the worldwide projects that Rotary International brings to the table. He also enjoyed bicycling, fishing, golf and motorcycling.

He shared his home in South Berwick, Maine with many pets over the years and more recently with his Labrador retriever, Parker, and feline friend, Elliott.

Dr. Mike will be remembered for his kindness, compassion, witty sense of humor, and unending love for his patients, clients, community, and family.  

"We have shared many laughs and some tears over the years and I have enjoyed watching your families grow and bring in their families. I deeply appreciate your friendship and loyalty."             ~~~ Michael K. Nazemetz

One of his favorite quotes, "Choose a work that you love and you won't have to work another day." ~~~ Confucius

Amanda McNutt

Dr. Amanda graduated veterinary school from St. George's University in Grenada after attending undergraduate school in Staten Island, NY where she was born and grew up. Heath and Amanda met in veterinary school and from there moved to Vermont after they graduated.

While in Vermont they worked in different clinics and had 3 little girls. They quickly realized they wanted to own a clinic and work together, so began that journey. Heath and Amanda purchased Village Veterinary Clinic in 2019 and enjoy sharing this life together.

Some of Amanda's favorite things to do outside of work are spending time with Heath and their 4 children. Together they enjoy traveling, skiing, hiking and going to the beach. They look forward to being a part of this community for years to come.

Tammy Poole
Veterinary Technician/Office Manager

My name is Tammy Poole. I started here in October of 1992, shortly after graduating from UNH and receiving my AS in Animal Science from the Thompson School of Applied Science. When I first started here there was a staff of just a few. I quickly put my previous experience and newly learned academics to work doing what I had dreamed of. Before long I realized I had became part of a great veterinary practice, a wonderful work family and even greater community.

30 years later and I still love every aspect of veterinary medicine. From the incredible pets, their amazing humans, our awesome doctors, and all the hard working staff who make it happen. So much has changed since the pencilled in appointments and hand written reminder cards and it has been my pleasure to be a part of Village Veterinary Clinics growth.

Outside of the office I enjoy yoga, hiking, aerial dance, gardening, raising monarch butterflied, the Red Sox, and spending time with my husband, our family and our 2 grandchildren. And whenever possible, traveling to Costa Rica. We are currently owned by three cats, Keeper, Alice, and Flipper and a large saltwater fish tank.

Shelby started in the veterinary field in 2016 working in general practice while finishing her schooling. She graduated from Great Bay Community College in 2017 with a degree in Veterinary Technology. Craving a change of pace Shelby transitioned into a career in shelter medicine. While Shelby loved a lot about working at the shelter, she found it difficult to balance work and home life. She decided to transition back to general practice and joined the team at Village Veterinary Clinic in 2020. 

While Shelby is in the clinic she enjoys helping out with surgery, assisting with dentistry, and singing to patients when they come in for a visit. When Shelby isn’t working she enjoys doing yoga, camping, foraging, playing Dungeons and Dragons, and spending lots of time with her family, especially her 2 children, Ezra and Iris. Shelby also has four fur babies; 2 dogs Freyja and Bragi and 2 older cats Odin and Ymir.

While Jordan is in the clinic she enjoys snuggling patients for their vaccines and assisting in surgery. When Jordan isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her husband Ben, son Hunter, and daughter Caroline and going to the lake.
