Kristen graduated Harcum College in 2002.  She completed a 6-month practicum at Veterinary Hospital University of Pennsylvania and New Bolton. Kristen passed her boards and earned her license in 2003. 

Kristen started her career as a kennel technician in a pet store, feeding and cleaning up after puppies as well as assisting the veterinarian with vaccinations. 

Kristen works at Winslow Animal Hospital part-time because her full-time job is chasing around the happiest, craziest ball of energy – her 3-year-old little boy! He is her world, her hobby, and her free time! Kristen is married and has a 5-year-old German Shepherd named Darby.  Kristen’s family adopted her as a 6-month-old puppy with a broken leg when her original owners didn’t want to move forward with treatment for the puppy.
