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.
