VCA Maple Shade, Business Manager:
For Amanda Pierce, it’s all about relationships.
Pierce, who has been employed at the animal hospital for 16 years (it’s been in operation for 35 years), said she decided on her career in part to be supportive.
“I wanted to help the people and their pets by helping to educate clients on choosing best medicine and lifestyle for their furry family member,” Pierce said. “I also want to create an empowering and fun place for my team to work.”
She said what is unique about the hospital is the way people and animals are treated when they walk (or fly, hop, or slither) in the door.
“The pet’s health is our top priority and excellent customer service is our goal,” Pierce said. “Every team member genuinely cares about our clients and patients as if they are family.”
She said she would recommend Maple Shade to someone looking to open a business here.
“It’s a nice town with friendly people,” Pierce said.
She noted she is a member of the Maple Shade Business Association because “it is important to support local businesses,” adding that the greatest challenge to Maple Shade businesses is online shopping.
A native of Bayville, N.J. (“I love the beach, it is in my soul!”), Pierce graduated from Central Regional High School and, later, Ocean County College.
A Medford resident for nine years, she spends her spare time spending time with her family, seeing Broadway shows, going to the beach, vacationing, reading, learning history, crafting, going to the movies, and interior decorating.

Michael Woods, owner of Ed and Sons AutoGlass, Inc., says one thing he’s learned about running a business is how you interact with patrons.
“You treat your customers like family,” he said.
Woods has spent 42 years working at Ed and Sons, which has been in town 55 years.
“My father started this business and as a young child I learned the business,” he said.
According to Woods, what makes his business unique is that it is family owned and operated.
While he does not hold a position in the MSBA, Woods’ wife, Lisa, attends meetings.
“She enjoys learning from other town business members,” he said.
“[It’s a] great town to be in business,” Michael added.
Asked what the greatest challenge the Maple Shade Business Association faces, he replied “the current pandemic.”
A lifelong Shader (58 years), Michael is a graduate of Maple Shade High School who said spending “time with my family” is what he likes to do when he’s not working.
