Through the years she has worked as a technician and receptionist at local family veterinarian offices while attending WCJC to receive her AAS.

Kristina joined the Internal Medicine team in late 2013. Not only does she enjoy continuously learning more about the specialty field, she also enjoys the relationships she continues to form with the pets and pet parents that come through the Internal Medicine service. In 2017 Kristina became the team lead for our Internal Medicine team and in 2019 accepted the role of manager to Internal Medicine and our Neurology team. She is excited to continue to grow her knowledge in specialized veterinary medicine.
