Dr. Kristy was born and raised in Alhambra, California and is a Southern California girl at heart. She graduated from UC Davis in June 2005, did an internship and practiced in Sacramento for 2 years, and has been at Talega Animal Hospital since 2007.
Dr. Kristy wanted to be a small animal veterinarian for as long as she can remember. She particularly loves internal medicine cases and the challenge of diagnosing a problem in a dog or cat that cannot tell you themselves what is wrong.
She feels that the patience she needs to deal with her patients is garnered from the patience she needs to deal with her 5 year old son and the 2 chihuahuas that she has adopted since joining Talega Animal Hospital! In her spare time, she enjoys antiquing with her mom, exploring new and familiar eating places, and going on adventures with her husband and son!
Dr. Kristy knows how important your pets are to you and looks forward to helping to keep your fury loved ones healthy
