Receptionist SupervisorKirsten R
Kirsten was born and raised in the Coachella Valley.
Right after graduating from La Quinta High School, she enrolled at California Baptist University where she majored in Biology with a concentration in environmental science. While in college, Kirsten interned at the Mary S. Roberts Adoption Center in Riverside. She helped socialize animals and fostered many.
Kirsten has been a die hard animal lover since she was a little girl. Growing up, her dream was to become a marine biologist. Every summer, she would stay with her grandparents in Long Beach, CA and swim in the ocean for hours at a time with her grandfather.
