Hi! I’m Kristie. I’ve grown up with animals my whole life, not with the farm animals most of my colleagues have, but with dogs, cats, and even a rabbit at one time. After working on the human side of medicine for a few years, I realized my passion is working with and caring for animals.

Hi! I’m Kristie. I’ve grown up with animals my whole life, not with the farm animals most of my colleagues have, but with dogs, cats, and even a rabbit at one time. After working on the human side of medicine for a few years, I realized my passion is working with and caring for animals.

My earliest memory of my animals is when I was younger and would play “doctor” with my kittens after watching episodes of ER. There isn’t a time when I wasn’t surrounded by animals growing up. My parents taught me to always love animals because they’re creatures that need our love and care. My first puppy that was “mine” was a Shih Tzu named Oreo I received for my 9th birthday as it was my golden birthday. Oreo taught me responsibility and unconditional love.  One traumatic memory was when he went missing for a few days.  When we finally found him, we found out that he had been hit by a car and sustained a broken collarbone. Going through his recovery taught me a lot of what a vet and technician’s job entails and how hard they work.

Growing up my family always called me the “dog whisperer” because any dog I met instantly liked me and of course I fell in love with anything large and fluffy. I definitely lean more towards being a “dog person” but any animal seems to have a special place in my heart, whether I’ve known them for 5 minutes or 5 years. I currently have a Goldendoodle named Bear, a Bernese Mountain Dog named Ruby, and two kittens named Panda and Charles.
