Certified Veterinary Technician
Hello! My name is Kyla and I have been a Veterinary Technician for 6 years! I graduated from Globe University in Woodbury. I’ve worked at 2 previous clinics before landing at France Ave. Pet Hospital. I’ve dabbled in all different things such as Wildlife and Exotics. I currently still work part-time with exotics when I can! Animals are my passion, and I will always be an advocate for their well-being. I currently have 1 cat at home. Bones! She definitely keeps me on my toes as her personality knows no bounds! I would love to have a dog someday; with my current crazy schedule, I don’t feel I would be able to give a dog the time and attention it fully needs. I don’t have much downtime, but when I do I’m relaxing at home with Bones or traveling north to spend time in the country with my family. I love to go fishing, boating, hiking, camping, anything outdoors! Here’s to Someday!

Katie loves all living things and enjoys spending her free time with her own pets. She has a Pekingese pooch named Beckham, a bearded dragon named Rosalie, a kitten named Francis, and some cory catfish/mystery snails. Katie is very excited to be making a difference in the veterinary field alongside her lovely coworkers. She is currently going to Normandale Community College to achieve her associate’s degree and plans to attend technical college as the next step in her educational future. If Katie could only eat one meal for the rest of her life, it would probably be pancakes.
