Get to Know Our Veterinarians
Dr. Leah Goodman
A native of Bangor, Dr. Leah has wanted to be a veterinarian since she was 9 years old and started volunteering at Broadway Animal Hospital when she was just 12! She eventually got her first paying job at that same hospital at 15, then earned her DVM from Cornell University in 1994. Dr. Leah has worked at several other local practices, including Forest Avenue Veterinary and ARL, and says she most enjoys emergency care and surgery.
While she has more cats than dogs at home, Dr. Leah says she doesn’t have a favorite and needs both canines and felines. Her pets include Pablo, a rescue dog from New Mexico, Valerie, a feral cat, and Jimothy, who she describes as a “tongueless feline circus freak.”
When she’s not working, Dr. Leah enjoys swimming, biking, painting, gardening, cooking, and spending time with her human family: husband, Greg, and three sons, Drew, Charlie, and Nick. She also indulges herself with clothes and chocolate every chance she gets!
Dr. Ariana Bailey
Dr. Ariana Bailey came to us from Dehler Animal Hospital. As a child, Dr. Ariana Bailey grew up worldwide, living in places like Indonesia, Vietnam, and England. She knew she wanted to be a vet from a very young age. It all started on vacation with a strong desire to help street animals in Bangkok, Thailand, at 10 years old. Since then, her love for animals has grown from a hobby to a career.
Dr. Bailey earned her veterinary degree at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. She now lives with her husband Matt in Standish and has a St. Bernard named Archer, a standard poodle named Lana, and her cat Cyril. Her main hobbies are international traveling, cooking, and hiking. She can often be found reading a good book on her deck and enjoying all the nooks and crannies Maine offers.
Dr. Brandon Durand
Dr. Brandon Durand is originally from Lebanon, Maine, where his animal love started. He grew up on a small farm and learned to care for all the animals his mother would bring home to “rescue.” He went on to get his bachelor’s degree in animal veterinary science at the University of Maine Orono. While in Orono, he volunteered at the local humane society and worked at the school dairy. After finishing his bachelor’s, he decided to pursue his veterinary degree.
He moved across the country with his future wife and 2 cats, landing in Colorado, where he would obtain a master’s degree in Toxicology and his Doctorate in Veterinary medicine from Colorado State University. After living in Colorado for 15 years, Dr. Durand and his family moved back to Maine, where he began practicing at Stoneledge Animal Hospital.
He enjoys soft tissue surgery, internal medicine cases, and emergency medicine. While not working, he enjoys fishing, golfing, and exploring Maines wilderness.
