Technician SupervisorKimberly Raupp
I have always had a passion for animals. There were always puppies, dogs, and cats that "followed me home", when I was a child. I begged my mom for a pony, and was convinced it could live in the shed in our suburban backyard. I always knew that I would some how work with animals when I grew up.
I am married with three children. I am owned by four dogs, six cats, two parrots, and a variety of exotic pets, including "Bubba", the fifty-five pound tortoise. I attended the veterinary technician program held at Wayne State, and became a licensed veterinary technician.
I joined the VCA Allen Park Animal Hospital family in 2004. I enjoy every day interactions with our wonderful clients and our patients. Am dedicated to providing the best care possible and treat each patient as if they were my own pet. I have continued my education and enjoy counseling owners on nutrition and how they too, can help their pet companions live a long and healthy life.
