Pet Groomer

Nancy Hastings

Nancy Hastings was first hired by Mt. Nittany as a receptionist. In 1993, after several years helping clients at the front desk, Nancy took the plunge into grooming. She’s happy to report that Mt. Nittany Grooming has continued to grow ever since. Nancy has lived in the State College area most of her life and now resides in Pleasant Gap with her son, Jason, who is her pride and joy! When she’s not in a room full of dog hair and running dryers, Nancy enjoys the peace and quiet of gardening and spending time with her family.

Andrea joined Mt. Nittany Veterinary Hospital as a receptionist in December 2008. A native of Texas, she also lived in California and Rhode Island before settling in the State College area and has made this her home, along with her husband, their four children, cat and four dogs. Having spent many years in office management before joining the Mt. Nittany team, she fell in love with working with the animals and clients here at Mt. Nittany and realized that this is her calling. If you're looking for just the right type of food, treat, toy, or other item for your special pet, Andrea will be pleased to help you find it! In her spare time Andrea enjoys traveling and spending time with her family all across the U.S. Please stop in and say hi to Andrea the next time you're in the neighborhood.
