Kristen joined SVA in 2015.  She earned a Veterinary Assistant Certificate from PIMA medical institute and is interested in veterinary surgery, phlebotomy, the human/animal bond, and all the messy, dirty things that gross other people out.  Outside of work, Kristen enjoys hiking, reading, yoga, and just about anything she can do outdoors.  Kristen is owned by Stanley, a tuxedo cat who can be politely described as feisty.
