Dr. Karen James, our Chief of Staff, grew up down east in Washington County Maine. She graduated with a DVM degree from Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine in 2012. After graduation Dr. James spent four years working at a mixed animal practice in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. She is excited to be back home in Maine working with companion animals and their owners. Her professional interests include fear free practice, client education, along with wellness and preventative medicine. Dr. James strives to provide outstanding patient care with both her medicine and surgery skills.

Outside the clinic she can be found gardening, spending time with friends and family, and kayaking. Dr. James loves dogs and cats of all breeds and sizes but has a fond affinity for a Chihuahua named, Vinny and an orange tabby domestic shorthair named, Jasper.

Dr. Meaghan McMonagle graduated from Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. After a quick year working at a walk-in clinic in the heat of San Antonio she moved to Maine and joined the Blue Hill Community. She has a special interest in pain control. However, her overall goal is to use all resources available to provide the best medical care and advice for your pet and your family.

She lives with her husband, Zachary, her loveable toddler, and two feline friends, Dexter the Menace and Tatlier the Princess. When she is not looking after patients, Dr. McMonagle enjoys hiking, travel, sports, and baking.
