The Herring Team
Cynthia Herring, practice owner, handles the business part of owning a practice. She founded the practice with the late Dr. Ronald K. Herring in 1986. For 38 years, she worked side by side with Dr. Herring, creating the foundation for what Herring Veterinary Service has come to represent in the community today. When the practice was first founded, she was a jack of all trades. She answered phones, assisted with procedures, and did the human resources work. As the practice grew, she continued to take on more and more responsibilities, allowing Dr. Herring to concentrate on practicing medicine and forging bonds with clients. When she isn’t taking care of business, she can be found in the woods with her dogs and grand puppies. She has two grandchildren, Alia and Ian, whose every whim and desire she thoroughly enjoys indulging. Recently, Cynthia discovered her love of chicken husbandry and cares for a small flock on her property. As a young girl, her love of reading and animals led her to the James Herriot collection about a young Scottish veterinarian practicing medicine in part of the 1900s in the English countryside. Throughout her life, she drew inspiration from the books with the quote, “All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.” Dr. Herring’s love of his clients and their pets is what motivates her today. She feels driven to continue his legacy and care for everyone in the practice.
Daniel Herring, practice manager, handles the day-to-day operations at Herring Veterinary Service as well as helping to grow the relationships between the practice and its clients. Daniel is the son of Dr. Ronald Herring and Mrs. Cynthia Herring, who founded the practice is 1986. From a small child, Daniel was always a special helper at the clinic, collecting snips, snails, and puppy dog tails. He lived in Cheyenne, Wyoming for eight years, where he helped run the local Petco. During his time there, he learned a lot about the animal husbandry of all the critters that came through the door. He won an award for his outstanding customer service and traveled to Dallas, Texas to showcase his talents. In his spare time, he enjoys landscape and wildlife photography and has won a national award for his photography. His favorite saying is, “Scales, tails, feathers, and fur. They are all part of the family.” He is dedicated to treating everyone that walks through the door like the family they are.
Dr. Lynne Cosner
Dr. Lynne Cosner has been a veterinarian for 22 years. She has practiced veterinary medicine for 19 of those years in Clearfield, PA. She moved to Pennsylvania from Ohio in January 2000 and she has never looked back. Dr. Cosner joined the practice in September 2019. Prior to that, she owned and operated her own practice before selling the practice. She is a Buckeye, born and raised. She graduated from Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in animal science in 1994 and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1997.
In her spare time, she is a farmer. She raises chickens, grass-fed beef cattle, and grass-fed Katahdin sheep. Dr. Cosner has a passion for caring for abused and neglected animals. Presently she has a fat, sassy Hereford cow named Sweet Pea and a shy, quiet alpaca named Kippy. When she is caring for animals at the clinic, she can be found on the Pennsylvania backroads doing farm calls. She works with the local Amish community treating their livestock. One of her core beliefs is the Golden Rule. She applies this to both her personal life and how she practices medicine. Every client and cherished pet she sees is part of her extended family, and she wants to make sure they feel like it.

She’s been to the beaches in Aruba, but the beach she likes the most is in the Outer Banks, NC. During the beach offseason, she likes to take her dogs so they can enjoy the beach too! Sally believes in being kind to others and helping them when possible. While she’s at work, her goal is to make people feel welcomed and help them to the best of her knowledge.
Lynette Fulmer, receptionist, has been with Herring Veterinary Service for two years. Her responsibilities include welcoming clients, checking their pets in, answering the phone, and making appointments. This is the second veterinary clinic that she has worked for. Prior to working at Herring Veterinary Clinic, she owned and operated several styling salons, but her love for animals led her to try something in the animal field. Some of the things she likes to do in her free time are horseback riding, playing with her own pups, taking care of her chickens, and working in the yard. One of the most important things she has learned is that you’re never too old to try new things or even a new career. Lynette takes her job very seriously. She strives to do her best to help every client and ensure their pet gets the best care possible.
