Certified Veterinary Technician, Osseo
Kelly is a Certified Veterinary Technician at our Osseo hospital. Kelly’s favorite part of her job is educating clients and learning something new every day.
Kelly knew at a very young age that she wanted to make a difference and be part of the veterinary industry, as her mom was an animal control officer and a dog breeder. Kelly started her veterinary technology degree at The Medical Institute of Minnesota in 1992. She also worked at a veterinary clinic and graduated and became certified in 1995. Before working at Vet Partners, Kelly worked at a couple different small animal and mixed practices, where she stayed for many years. She then became a veterinary instructor at a college teaching future vet techs. Kelly became a relief veterinary technician to help the veterinary industry during the pandemic and found her new home at Vet Partners. Kelly has worked with a wide variety of animals and exotics of many different species. She is the small critter and big bird handler go-to girl.
In her free time, you can find Kelly keeping busy with her four kids, husband, and pets. She also likes scrapbooking pictures, as she is a picture freak! She loves spending time in the sun, gardening, fishing, camping, and traveling with her family.
