Malorie Moyer, ordering manager and veterinary assistant, came to Silver Maple in March of 2014. She started as an assistant and has taken over ordering inventory as well. She has loved animals for as long as she can remember, and feels that Silver Maple is the perfect place to call her second home. She has five fluffy "children": her sidekick, Jemmy, the Australian Shepherd; two cats named Tashi and (toothless) Tikki; and two ball pythons named Koda and Spyder. In her spare time, she enjoys hunting and fishing, hiking with Jemmy, showing her El Camino at local car shows, playing guitar, doing yoga, and hanging with her family and friends. Fun Fact: She can juggle, and was in the same juggling club as another member of the Silver Maple crew, Caroline!
Justine Bennecoff, veterinary assistant, loves working with animals both at the clinic and on her pig farm. In addition to pigs, she has sheep, chickens, donkeys, and a horse. Justine submits her animals to local fairs and also presents them at the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show. She also loves just hanging out with her animals, particularly with her dogs Lacey, Millie, and Tequila. When she's not working with animals, Justine is also a sports fanatic, with a favorite being softball. Fun Fact: Justine could definitely take on a black bear in a fight and win.

She looks forward to continuing to work with you and your pet!

Krista has been working at SMVC for 8 & 1/2 years. She grew up in Fleetwood, Pa where she still resides. Krista learned about Silver Maple Veterinary Clinic after shadowing one of our Veterinarians for a school project in the 8th grade.
Krista is most passionate about helping animals in any way she can. She is currently going to school to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. What excites Krista most is that she gets to spend time with animals and also have the chance to help them.
In her free time, Krista likes getting out and exploring the places we live in. She enjoys taking hikes and going fishing because you can explore so many paths and experience things that not many people know are out there. She likes getting out into nature because you also get to experience different wildlife in their natural habitat. You can often find Krista hiking at Hickory Run or Ricketts Glen and of course spending time with her basset hound Daisy!
