Hi! My name is Kristen. I graduated from St. Petersburg College of Veterinary Nursing as a CVT. Ever since I was little, I wanted to work with animals and thankfully, I get to do that everyday! My goal in life is to provide happiness and health to every animal I can. I will try my hardest to be the best I can be for my patients. Besides animals, I am also a mother to 3 children who make my world, and a fiancé who always makes me laugh. I have two dogs Lily and Leeroy, and a cat named Alvin who fill our lives even more!
