Kelli has a heart for animals, which has made her the perfect fit for our team! She has a calm demeanor and works well under pressure, which is reassuring when our clients are upset when their baby is sick, and they don’t know what do to! Our favorite thing about Kelli is how her eyes light up and her smile gets real big when she talks about her fur babies! She is with us because she truly loves animals and is a great caretaker for those that love them.
Kelli came from the food industry where she was manager for about 12 restaurants at a time and was up all hours taking care of her people. She has always loved animals and has over 5 years of experience volunteering with canine rescues, and even served as a transporter for several animals across state lines. She joined our team after the animal emergency room (Perin-410) closed, but not before she became Certified in Pet First Aid and CPR. She also became USDA certified in March of 2023.
In Kelli’s spare time, she likes to spend time with her family & travel. Her face will light up when she talks about Bodacious Jaxson AKA Bodie, her 12-year-old “Dorkie” and first-born stinker. Then there’s Belle Nelle who is lovingly referred to as Belle. Belle is a 5-year-old Westie Maltese Mix and a “foster fail” as she was Kelli’s very first litter of fosters. Brulee is a 5-year-old Frenchie and came with the marriage. Rainier (Rainie) is the couple’s 10-month-old, scared of her own shadow, Great Dane.
