VCA Stoney Creek Animal Hospital


  • Hospital Manager

    Karen .

    Karen is originally from New Jersey, but after moving to South Florida as a child, started her veterinary career at the age of 15 as a kennel attendant. Since the decision to make this her life long career, she has held positions as a receptionist, veterinary technician and technician supervisor before being promoted to practice manager at VCA Academy Animal Hospital in Coral Springs where she worked for almost 20 years.

     Karen joined VCA Stoney Creek after moving with her family to South Carolina and happily commutes to be part of such a great team. She shares her home with two cats Paws and Caboose (abandoned by train tracks) and "Karma", a new black lab puppy. 

    In her spare time Karen enjoys reading, time at the beach and spending time with her two children Michael, age 14, Hailey age 9 (future Veterinarian hopeful) and her loving boyfriend Joseph.

    " I enjoy not only spending time with the pets at our practice but being able to lead such a dedicated and fun staff committed to providing quality medical care.  It is a blessing to have a job you truly enjoy coming to every day"
