    Doctor Assistant/LVT Student

    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.
