Meet our team! Triadelphia Veterinary Clinic was founded with the idea of creating a family friendly hospital that invites your whole family to participate in your pet's veterinary care. Our Doctors have over 50+ years of professional experience.
Dr. Jones has been practicing veterinary medicine for over 20 years. She is married, a mother of two wonderful boys and a spoiled miniature schnauzer. She has been in the veterinary community since she was a teenager, working as an assistant in Westminster, Maryland. Dr. Jones graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Delaware in 1992 with a major in Animal Science and a minor in Biology. She was then accepted to the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine where she received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1996.
She has a special interest in non-traditional, exotic pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, hamsters, and other rodents. She had the good fortune of working with a Board Certified Avian Specialist gaining knowledge of various bird species as well as reptiles. Dr. Jones raised Netherland Dwarf rabbits starting as a 4-H project that evolved into an avid hobby, which she continued until her college years.
Dr. Stup grew up in Howard County and knows what a wonderful place this area is for pets and families. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Maryland, College Park, she attended North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. While there, she developed interests in oncology and emergency medicine. Upon graduation from NC State, she was chosen by Tufts University in Massachusetts for advanced studies as an intern in small animal medicine and surgery. Since 2002, Dr. Stup has practiced veterinary medicine in Howard County; the area that started her passion for helping animals. In January 2006, she was proud to open Triadelphia Veterinary Clinic with her colleagues. She lives in the neighborhood with her husband, daughter, son, 3 dogs, cats, miniature horse, chickens and goats.
Dr. Oltman grew up in Livonia, Michigan. She attended Michigan State University, achieving her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in June 1990. She has lived and worked in Howard County, Maryland since August 1990. As well as being a small animal practitioner, Dr. Oltman has worked with Hills Pet food on several clinical trials for new prescription diets. She strives to form lasting relationships with her clients and their pets. Dr. Oltman lives with her husband, 2 sons and several cats.
Carissa has always had a passion for animals, people, and helping in any way she can. She grew up in the local 4-H program showing cattle, hogs, sheep, and pleasure riding horses. You could say that the love for animals came pretty natural to her.
She is currently enrolled in the Penn Foster business management program to receive her bachelor's degree and eventually earn her Certified Veterinary Practice Manager certificate (CVPM). When not working at the clinic or on school work, you can find Carissa spending time with family and giving lots of love to her pack of Pembroke Welsh Corgis; Londyn, Mr. Wilson, Styrling, and Brystol! She could not be happier to be a part of the TVC staff and loves working with three of the kindest veterinarians in the area!
