Medical Director

"As a young child I found a stray dog while playing outside and immediately fell in love with her!  I brought her home and much to my surprise, my parents let me keep her.  I must have been about seven years old at the time.  Soon thereafter, Taffy decided to eat a sponge and developed a complete obstruction - vomiting was all that she could do.  We took her to our local veterinarian who surgically removed the sponge,  but told us that she might not live because she was so weak.  I remember sitting with her day and night so that I could hand-feed her small portions of food - I was not about to let her die.   When we took Taffy back to the animal hospital for her re-check, she jumped up on the doctor and licked his face.  That was when I decided to become a veterinarian and I have never looked back."

"My goal is to have the finest hospital in the area.  I am continually upgrading our equipment so that we can have the best diagnostic facility, the safest anesthetic equipment, and the most advanced surgical equipment that can be found anywhere.  I insist that all of our veterinarians attend continuing education conferences to stay on the cutting edge of Veterinary medicine and surgery.  Equally important to me is that we have a super friendly, well trained staff to make your visit to our hospital a pleasant experience.  I have been here for 42 years and the best part of my day is coming to work and taking care of your pets!"

Dr. Neuman did his undergraduate work at Cornell University and then went to the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.  After graduating with highest honors, he did a rotating medical and surgical internship at the Ontario Veterinary College.  Dr. Neuman is Board Certified in Canine and Feline Practice and is proud to be the founder and Medical Director of St. Charles Animal Hospital.

Hi! My name is Lena, and I have been in the veterinary field since 2016! I worked as both a technician and receptionist from 2016 up until this year, 2023. I am originally from northern Virginia, but moved to Waldorf to be with my new husband, married October 2022! 

Together we have a 1 year old King Charles Cavalier Spaniel named Pearl, a 10 year old chihuahua mix named Ruby, and an almost 20 year old cat, named Bo-Bo! Working for St. Charles has been an incredible experience so far, the staff has all welcomed me with open arms, and I have never met such lovely and caring owners. I’m so happy to have found this hospital! 

Other than veterinary medicine, a big passion of mine is water safety! I grew up a competitive swimmer. I coached competitive swim for 7 years, and taught lessons for a total of 9 years. (I even used to do therapy swimming for dogs!) 

I so look forward to meeting you and your furry family member!

Angie    
Head Technician  

My name is Angela, I have a bachelors degree in Marine science and biology. I have been working in the veterinary field since January of 2011. In this time I have worked many positions in a veterinary hospital. I started out working client service and quickly became trained as a technician and shortly after that I was trained as a surgical technician. I have 2 fur babies of my own, Tiger who was a rescued feral cat that I have had since he was estimated at 5 weeks old, and DaVinci my black lab. I am so grateful for the opportunities I have received while working at SCAH. I look forward to working with our doctors and picking their brains every day for more knowledge to fill my own and to continue to progress and perfect my skills as a technician. I have always thought that there is something very challenging about taking care of patients that cannot verbally express hurt or distress, but that is why I love my job and it is something I take pride in. Everyday as a technician is challenging and rewarding at the same time, and I would not change it for the world!

     My vet career started in 1997 as a kennel assistant.  I attended Harcum College in Pennsylvania from 1998-2001 where I graduated with an Associates Degree in Science.  I completed an internship at the University of Pennsylvania Small Animal Hospital in Philadelphia, as well as a large animal at the New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, PA.  After graduation, I went to work for a surgical practice and prepared for my  national boards exam (VTNE).  In 2001, I became a Registered Veterinary Technician. 
     After 20 years in the profession my passion continues to grow.  I have had the privilege of caring for many pets from young and healthy, to critically ill, to geriatric.  I am always learning something new.  I especially love to educate clients on having new puppies/kittens, nutrition, and behavior.
     My furry family consists of a 5 year old Pit Bull named Abby, and a 13 year old cat named Barnaby.  I have been at St. Charles for 2 years now and I look forward to meeting you and helping your pet with everything they need for the best possible care!

 I am so happy to work with such a devoted team of individuals. The entire staff truly makes the care and well-being of every fur baby that comes in their highest priority.  This is a standard that I strive to provide as well.  St. Charles has given me the opportunity to learn many new things every day, and to meet so many wonderful pets and their families! One of my favorite things is being able to educate clients who have added a new puppy or kitten to the family. I enjoy teaching owners about their new pet’s needs, such as nutrition, socialization, training, and necessary vaccines, etc to maintain the pets overall health and wellness. I find is so rewarding!

I have grown up around many animals in my life, and have worked with them for many years. I have been in the veterinary field as a technician for 7 years, 5 of them as a technician with St. Charles.  Animals have always been a huge part of my life, and I have always known that I wanted a career working with them.  Achieving that goal in my life has been amazing!  Outside of work I am blessed to share my home with many creatures great and small, including a wonderful miniature schnauzer named Pepper Jack, 6 amazing cats, snakes, lizards, chinchillas, degus, axolotls, and the occasional foster kitten, or two, or more! I love to foster kittens! I seem to have a group every year. I enjoy getting them healthy, socialized, and showering them with love until they find their new families.

My non-animal related interests include spending time with my spouse, and my awesome friends, watching Marvel superhero movies/tv shows, binging Disney Plus, collecting vintage toys from my childhood (the 90’s), and various arts and crafts projects.
