Support Staff

ASCS support staff show their dedication by caring for our patients, equipment and spaces with professionalism and heart. They are the foundation of our excellent service.


Noelle Norrie

Practice Manager

Noelle has one of the longest tenures at ASCS, joining the practice in 1997 as a referral coordinator. Her passion has always been creating lasting relationships with the clients and making sure that everything runs smoothly for the practice. Since becoming Practice Manager in 2014 and she recently became a Veterinary Management Institute Graduate, solidifying her position here at ASCS. She looks forward to continually helping the practice to grow. Noelle and her husband spend their free time mountain biking and trying to keep up with their two black Labradors, Finn and Wallice.


Kim Berger

Front Office Manager

After previous careers in visual merchandising and interior design, Kim made an about face when she decided to satisfy a life-long interest in veterinary medicine. She started out in general practice and then worked for a time at the Animal Medical Center before joining us in October of 2012. She really enjoys working in specialized care in a family environment and especially enjoys getting to know our patients and their owners. She still entertains her passion for decorating and crafting, (she practically invented Pinterest!), and takes pride in turning “junk” into treasure. With her three children grown and gone, Kim shares her home with her husband and an Aussie mix named Hattie and a Border collie named Baron.


Christie Gilliam

Referral Coordinator

Our newest Referral Coordinator, Christie, has worked in the veterinary field for the past 15 years. She originally hails from Nashville, Tennessee and contrary to what most recent transplants claim, the reason for her recent relocation to our area had nothing to do with our economic boom and everything to do with our weather! She found that in her search for the best places to live with chronic asthma, Seattle came on top, so she and her husband and three kitty cats made a beeline up to the PNW.

A self-proclaimed “cat addict,” (Yes, she’s the one with the stroller), she’s also an avid reader, Karaoke enthusiast, (she auditioned for The Voice and American Idol–that’s how good she is!), enjoys painting, arts and crafts and she studied music in college. She brings her experience, her care and her exceptional communication skills to our practice. And who can resist that warm southern drawl!



Paul Lomano

Pack Room Manager

Paul joined ASCS in 1999. As pack room manager, he is responsible for sterilization, maintenance and inventory control for all surgical instruments and equipment and making sure the surgeons have the necessary paraphernalia for the many procedures they perform. Paul’s quick wit and sense of humor lends for a bit of comic relief in our somewhat serious environment! Paul enjoys traversing the trails of Discovery Park with his wife, Lisa, traveling to the United Kingdom and chilling on the couch with his kitty, Mina. Paul is also an avid reader of a wide range of literature,  from Lord of the Rings to historical novels.
