Our Staff


Diane Downing, RVT

Diane is a Registered Veterinary Technician who has been working at The Grove City Veterinary Hospital since 1979. Her wealth of knowledge and experience means that she can and has done just about everything in the clinic aside from being a vet. She manages our inventory for us, placing orders to ensure we have what we need at all times to treat your pets. These days she is found most often answering the phones and checking patients in and out at the front desk. Over the years Diane has formed strong bonds and friendships with many of our clients, and their pets. 

Diane is married to husband Jack. She has a special love for coonhound type dogs which she affectionately called "cutehounds."  



Hanna Collins, RVT

Hanna is a Registered Veterinary Technician. She graduated from the Columbus State Community College's RVT program in 2011 and hired in at The Grove City Veterinary Hospital in March 2012. Hanna loves the technical aspects of being a Registered Veterinary Technician. She especially enjoys surgery and dentistry for our canine and feline patients. She loves that she can send a pet home with a healthier mouth than when the pet came in on the day of their dental procedure. Hanna also enjoys diagnostics such as taking x-rays, performing ear cytology, and urinalysis. Performing diagnostics adds more information to the puzzle of the mystery of a pet's illness to help the veterinarian form a treatment plan. 

She has 3 cats named Pepper, Quintin, and Gixxer. She also has a Great Dane named Dominic, and she keeps a saltwater fish aquarium as well.
