Animals have always been an integral part of Kelly’s life. She was focused on a career in animal care from the time she graduated from high school. After graduation she found a ground floor position in a veterinary clinic, where she first met Shawnah. They have been best friends ever since. Kelly received her initial training in veterinary nursing from Shawnah. After a few years, Kelly decided to try working on the human side as a medical assistant. Then one day her cat decided to swallow a fish hook. Kelly turned to her friend Shawnah who suggested Dr Brinkmann treat her cat, and the rest is history. Ten years later she’s still loving the veterinary life and the Animal Clinic of West Lake Worth family. She has rescued countless felines over the years. She recently rescued a large and friendly red footed tortoise called Bubba, and you will likely meet her furry son when you come to our clinic. His name is Kingston and he loves a back scratch. Kelly states that her biggest achievement to date is her beautiful daughter, Shandi. We all welcomed her to the world in November 2013.
