    Kristin is one of the smiling faces you will see working Client Service at VCA Lilburn Animal Hospital. She has been with us since April 2012. Kristin is a native of Charlotte, NC. She attended North Carolina State University and Central Piedmont Community College.

    Kristin has a Black Lab named Oliver and a "Perfect Mutt" named Emma. She is a member of the ASPCA. Kristen has been a client of VCA LAH for 3 years and loved the attention and care that she and her pets have received. It is a family environment, and the family grows every day with new clients and pets, and as she learns the faces of existing clients or "family"! Kristin says it's a great feeling at the end of the day to know you made a positive difference in a client.

    Kristin enjoys gardening, reading (her dogs like bedtime stories), and being with family and friends. She also loves watching NFL football and listening to music from the 50s, 50s, 70s, and 80s. We are so excited to have Kristin join us here at LAH!
