Robert Cleveland

Client Service Representative

Robert joins Hudson Animal Hospital with extensive experience in many facets of veterinary care. He joined the Westfield Veterinary Group and Wellness Center in Westfield, New Jersey in 1990. Soon after, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rutgers University with a concentration in Social Work. However, he realized his expertise and passion was in the field of veterinary medicine and became a trusted and valuable fixture at Westfield Veterinary Group for over twenty years. While there he augmented and solidified his skills in numerous areas including: client care, managing staff and technician’s duties. He also acted as a doctor’s liaison whose duties included facilitating communication between clients and doctors and coordinating appointments.

New Jersey’s loss is our gain as Robert now resides in Manhattan with his partner and their rescue Chihuahua Billy. They enjoy cycling throughout the city, traveling and the theater.
