Hospital ManagerKristen Roesner
School: University of Missouri - Columbia, Animal Science
Kristen was raised near St. Louis, Missouri. Her fondest childhood memories are the frequent visits to her grandparent's house who lived on the property of a Missouri hunting and fishing club. Kristen's grandparents were the club's caretakers. They cared for the numerous animals and watched over the club's lands. She loved visiting her grandparents, because she was able to assist with the animals and learn about wildlife and conservation. Kristen began shadowing veterinarians at the age of 14. Upon high-school graduation, she joined the University of Missouri College of Agriculture. She was employed at the School of Veterinary Medicine's teaching hospital as a small animal ICU technician. Kristen graduated with her Animal Science degree in 2010 and began working at VCA All Creatures Animal Hospital in 2012 as a CSR and Nutrition Consultant. A recent move to Kansas City, has brought her to VCA Welborn as our hospital manager! Featured in her picture is her Persian cat, Gandalf.
