Lori, Hospital Manager at Phoenix Animal Hospital

Hospital Manager

Hello, my name is Lori Freeman and I am the hospital manager here at Palm Glen. I joined this wonderful team last October. I moved to Phoenix from Moscow Idaho where I was the director of the Humane Society of the Palouse for the past 16 years. My husband and I love to spend time outside and to hang out with our furry children. When we aren’t taking care of our menagerie of animals, we are hanging out with family and enjoying exploring the new area we live in.
