Kimberly Smith

Veterinary Nurse/Reception

Kimberly has enjoyed working in the veterinary field for the last 20 years. During that time she has been fortunate to gain experience in nearly all of the roles a veterinary hospital setting provides. A highlight of her career has been the opportunity to live abroad in American Samoa and volunteer alongside Animal Balance to help provide much-needed veterinary care to the island's dogs. While she continues to enjoy working with all of our furry four-legged friends, she has also grown to love working with their special people equally as much and can currently be found spending the majority of her time at our front desk. When not working, she can be found spending quality time with her own crew of pets, cooking, or enjoying a good book.
