Doctor Kristy was born and raised in Eugene, OR. Starting at age 10, Kristy knew she wanted to become a veterinarian. Raising, training, and riding horses was a large part of Kristy’s younger years, which sparked her interest in veterinary medicine. She completed an undergraduate degree at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande, OR. After earning her veterinary degree from Oregon State University in 2011, she moved South to Carlsbad, CA to complete an internship in small animal medicine and emergency. Kristy enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine but has a strong interest in dentistry and dermatology. After living in Mount Shasta, CA for the past four years, she is excited to become an Oregonian again! Kristy enjoys all things that Oregon has to offer, especially outdoor activities such as camping and hiking. Her other hobbies include cooking, baking, running and CrossFit. She lives with her husband, a labradoodle, a border collie cross, and 3 cats.
