Kris grew up with pets her entire life, but it wasn’t until late in high school that she decided she wanted to work with animals. Kris started in the veterinary field in 2007 at the age of 19. She got her start as a receptionist but knew right away that she wanted to be more hands on with the pets. She started assisting in a kennel and was always ready to help hold an animal for nail trims with the technicians. In 2011 she received an opportunity to work as an assistant and has loved her job ever since.
In her spare time Kris loves to camp, hike, make jewelry and do anything crafty with her husband and son. She shares her household with 2 long-haired black cats, Odie and Princess Nopie.
