Her love for horses inspired her love for veterinary medicine and she decided to go follow that path. Her main interests include neonates, critical care, and anesthesia. She has devoted her time and training to becoming an anesthesia technician and loves learning about the many different aspects of that field. She is most passionate about the patients and making sure they are always cared for to the best level. In her free time she enjoys hiking with her dog Bentley, fishing, and riding her horse Griz. She competes in ranch sorting and is also starting to do some breakaway roping. Kelsey can’t wait to see what Arizona has to offer and she is very excited to be a part of the Jackpot Veterinary team.
