Kristen grew up on Long Island in New York, where she harbored a love for animals from her earliest days. After studying interior design for a brief time in college, she decided to follow her heart and pursue her passion: pet care! Now, Kristen proudly serves as South Rhea Animal Hospital’s groomer.
Kristen studied grooming at the Animal Behavioral College, interning at a local animal care facility at the same time. She was hired on full-time after completing her internship requirements; when the facility closed, she was happy to join the team here at South Rhea Animal Hospital. Kristen’s favorite part of her work is the end result—she never tires of seeing the look on a pet owner’s face when they see their clean, well-manicured animal companion!
Aside from her interests in the world of animal care, Kristen enjoys reading and spending time with her family and pets. She and her husband share their home with seven dogs—Raven, Miley, Dolly, Butch, Sparky, Styles, and Dusty—as well as three cats who go by Crookshanks, Fate, and Isis. Kristen also owns a miniature pot-bellied pig named Hogwarts.
