Kristina is a licensed veterinary technician at our Kirkland location, who came to us in 2016 after a recent move from Arizona. She joined our practice already having six years of veterinary ophthalmology experience. In total, she has been in the field of veterinary medicine for 21 years! Her favorite aspects of the job are client education and constantly adding to her knowledge in order to best help the pets she cares for.
Kristina currently has one cat and one dog. She has very sweet 5-year-old Shiba Inu named "Macy" and an aloof 7-year-old Russian Blue named "Saguaro". "Saguaro" came to her family after being abandoned in the Arizona desert, hence her name.
When she is not working, Kristina enjoys spending time with her family exploring WA, going to the beach, reading and baking.
