Our Careteam

Brandy Jones

CVT

Caring for animals is in Brandy’s blood—she comes from a line of dairy farmers and grew up around animals on a farm south of Hillsboro. There, she learned to give animals the best possible care and developed a strong work ethic.

Brandy attended Portland Community College, where she discovered the Vet Tech program. She completed her schooling on top of three clinical site rotations. After graduation, she was hired on as a Veterinary Technician at Cornell Center Animal Hospital! She likes lab work with the microscope, as well as hearing client stories about their furry friends.

At home, Brandy lives with her husband Nicholas and their pets—Pig Bert and Caterpillar, two guinea pigs; Arya, Sansa, and Smokey the cats; and Conner the German shepherd. In her spare time, Brandy loves hiking, drawing, and sewing. She even made the bridesmaids dresses for her wedding and is making the dresses for her friend’s wedding!

Brittany Carney

Client Services Specialist

Having grown up around pets and visiting her aunt’s boarding and training facility often as a child, Brittany always felt a natural pull toward the animal-care world. With her background in pet care and customer service, Brittany is the perfect fit for Cornell Center Animal Hospital’s Client Services team!

Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, Brittany attended college in Missouri before resettling in the Pacific Northwest. She previously worked in a boarding facility in northern California, as well as a fast-paced medical records center in Berkeley. When she heard about an opening here at Cornell Center Animal Hospital from a fellow employee, Brittany jumped at the chance to apply her animal-care knowledge in order to better the lives of the area’s pets. She’s especially fond of learning something new on a daily basis and imparting her knowledge to loving pet owners.

In her time away from work, Brittany is an avid artist and paints, draws, and sculpts whenever she can find time. She’s also fond of exploring new places, reading, playing golf, and attending stand-up comedy shows.

Sandi King

Lead Technician

As a kid growing up in Washington County, Sandi’s favorite pastime was trapping feral barn cats and trying to tame them. Even as she got older, Sandi would bring home every stray animal she could find, trying to provide it with a home. Now she still gets to care for animals as a certified Veterinary Technician!

Sandi used to work for a friend who ran a dairy, which was her first introduction to veterinary medicine. The doctor there told her about a program at Portland Community College, and with two young children to raise at home, Sandi went back to school and graduated in 1988 and has been certified ever since.

Dentistry is one of Sandi’s favorite passions within veterinary medicine. She loves giving a pet a clean mouth. She also likes working with senior pets.

Sandi and her husband have two grown children who have children of their own, and several pets—Izy, a large Cane Corso puppy, a British shorthair cat named Miley, and a Scottish fold cat named Beourman. Sandi even runs a Scottish fold cattery called Faerydae Folds, where she currently has two breeding females, two toms, and two more females on the rise!

Kelli Railey

CVT

Kelli grew up on a recreational farm in Silverton, Oregon, where her love of animals first blossomed. Combined with the nurturing side that she inherited from her mother, Kelli quickly realized that a career in animal care was the perfect path for her! Now, she’s a CVT here at Cornell Center Animal Hospital.

Kelli’s animal-care career began when she interned at a local pet clinic, where she developed a fascination with animal medicine. After moving to Portland, she started working at a doggie daycare facility and later signed up for the Veterinary Technician program at Portland Community College. Shortly after beginning her studies, she came across an opening here at the clinic, and knew it was the perfect opportunity to supplement her schooling with real-world animal healthcare experience.

Around the hospital, Kelli enjoys performing blood draws and studying samples under the microscope. Most of all, she enjoys meeting new pets every day and getting to be a first-hand witness to the incredible bonds between pets and their owners.

When she isn’t studying or caring for pets here at the clinic, Kelli enjoys reading history, horseback riding, surfing, gaming, and spending time with her own pets. She has a Chihuahua named Tyson who is a true people-lover; a cat named Roo who adores Tyson; a chihuahua Kenny who was adopted from WCAS while in school; and a foster cat who goes by Shadow.
