    Kristin McCarthy
    School: Penn State University, Education

    As a child Kristin always dreamed of being a veterinarian. She attended Penn State University beginning in the Animal Science Field with the thought of fulfilling her life long dream. After a couple of years at school, she realized that her compassion for animals would make it difficult to perform surgery and to ultimately make the decisions needed to euthanize at the end of an animal’s journey. With that thought, she decided to change her direction toward elementary education. After graduation, Kristin became a teacher but, always regretted never fulfilling her dream. After marriage and 2 children, she decided to change her life’s direction. A full time opportunity presented itself at VCA Neshaminy Animal Hospital and Kristin decided to go for it. She has been with VCA now for over 4 years and loves her  job. Kristin came to work part time for VCA Delaware Valley in 6/12. At home, her favorite job is to tend to her family consisting of 2 children, ages 11 and 15, her husband, and her many furry children including 3 dogs, Duncan, Nevada, and Sydney and a bunny named Cappuccino. Kristin's outside interests include camping, softball, and general family activities, like hiking with the dogs at Tyler State Park.
