An Arizona native, Kristi has wanted to work with animals since she was in kindergarten. She graduated from Carrington College in 2016 and worked as an animal cruelty investigator with MCSO in 2017. She moved to Chandler in 2019, and joined the SLCAC team in 2021. Kristi has had an interest in veterinary surgery from the get-go and has worked with a wide range of animals including livestock, wildlife, reptiles, and exotics. She enjoys providing top notch care for patients undergoing anesthesia—which always includes a copious amount of snuggles and love when they’re waking up post-op. Kristi takes a great deal of pride in being our lead surgery technician and ensuring that each patient gets the care and attention they need.
Kristi currently lives with her boyfriend Jesse, two dogs, Mia and Grizzly, and one cat named Dodger. In Kristi’s free time she enjoys traveling with Jesse, taking their dogs out, visiting family, and just having a good time overall.
