Joanne Desarmia

VA/Office Manager – Having graduated from the Veterinary Assistant Program through Granton Institute, and having worked in Large Animal Veterinary Practice for 5 years, Joanne joined the team here at Mississippi Veterinary Services in December of 1994. This very valued member of our team can be found at the reception desk or busy assuming her role as Office Manager. Her and her husband share their home with their cats “J.W.” (‘John Wayne’) and “Pepper”, “Betty” the Boston Terrier and “Darby” the Chihuahua and the newest addition to the family “Rio” a little Chihuahua mix.  Aside from spending her days with us here at Mississippi Vet Services Joanne has 2 hobbies which she is passionate about. She has her own business of “Jo Bling Creations” custom dichroic glass jewellery (which most of the staff wear!) and has also become addicted to Team Penning after acquiring her beloved Quarterhorse “Honey”.  When not penning or working Joanne enjoys beading, swimming, snorkelling, sewing, reading and has a love of vacationing in warm, sunny places with a view of the ocean!
