Kristen has been part of the Leaside Animal Clinic family since 1996. You don’t always see Kristen around the clinic because she spends most of her time doing the anesthesia in surgery. Her interests are in surgery, anesthesia and dentistry. What she loves most about her job is that she gets to be around animals all day, and the learning never stops. She enjoys taking the time to educate clients and nursing their furry companions back to health. 

Kristen has a Rottweiler/Cane Corso, Vega who has taught her a lot about having a pet with anxiety. This has led her to creating a positive fear-free experience for our patients! Outside of the clinic, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her husband, her two very active girls, her dog and two cats (Bosch and Diesel).
