Kelsey SimpkinsKennel Manager
Hello, I am Kelsey! I become a member of the Confederate Ridge team in 2018. I already feel like I am home, the staff is amazing! I think of us as one big happy family. I have 3 pets of my own, Princess and Lola (German Shepherds) and Tank a Labrador Retriever. I am currently taking classes through Penn Foster to
get my Veterinarian Technician degree. In my free time, I am helping rescue dogs find their forever homes, riding horses or studying! I was recently promoted to Kennel Manager! As a positive team leader, I ensure that all patients who stay with us are fear free and comfortable, keeping the kennel organized and clean as can be.
Hi! My name is Ashley. I recently re-joined the CRAH family again this December 2018. I get to work as a receptionist and as an assistant. You may see me at the front desk and you may see me snuggling your pets when you pick them up from boarding.
I first started at Confederate Ridge in 2005 as a receptionist. I left when I joined the Air Force. I recently retired from the Air Force and moved back home to Fredericksburg. I am so happy I was able to come back and work with such a great team again!
When I am not petting puppies and making appointments, I am raising my two amazing little boys, Jack & Clark. My fur baby is my 12 year old cat, Lily. I adopted her from Confederate Ridge when she was a kitten.
I look forward to helping you and your pets! Come meet me!
Hello, I am Kelley. I am a full time student to become an OTA. I have 2 fur children of my own Axel, a German Shepherd and Halligan who is an English Lab. I also have 3 horses Hope, Roxy and Journey. I am a PATH certified therapeutic riding instructor and I have been doing that since graduating high school in 2015. I
have moved around as an instructor from Virginia to Maryland to Ohio but I am happy to be staying in Virginia now. I was born in Florida and moved to Virginia in 3rd grade! I have a love and passion for all animals. My family owns a farm in Spotsylvania where we have fainting goats, chickens and my horses!
Can't wait to see you and your pets!
My name is Bethany, I have been apart of the Confederate Ridge Animal Hospital family since June of 2015. I have been working as a kennel assistant and I am currently taking online classes through Penn Foster to get my Veterinary Technician degree. I grew up with animals and I always knew that I wanted animals to be somewhere in my career path. When I am not watching the fur babies, you can find me at home playing some guitar, piano and singing or studying like crazy. I grew up in Fredericksburg, Virginia and I have been here all 22 years of my life. I'm so thankful to work with such an amazing group of people.
I'm Brittany, i have been a team member of Confederate Ridge Animal Hospital for 3 years now and am very
proud to say that i work at an amazing facility. I was recently promoted to Doctors Assistant position, helping the Doctors and Technicians with anything needed. I was born and raised here in Fredericksburg, VA. I have one dog named Shiloh that acts just like a human. In my free time you can find me either hunting, fishing, or antiquing. I plan to further my career and later
become a Veterinary Technician, pursuing my dreams.
Hi, My name is Arianna! I have recently joined the Confederate Ridge family and already feel at home. Everyone is so welcoming and loving here. I have one pet of my own, Sammi. She is a one year old lab mix that I adopted from the SPCA. I am currently enrolled in Veterinary Technician School through Penn Foster. When I am not at work, I am either playing with my dog, spending time with my family, riding horses or studying.
