Office Manager and Certified Veterinary Technician
Karen grew up in Indiana and now lives on a nine-acre farm nearby. She came to us at PAVG after her own ma/pa clinic closed and, right when this happened, an opening came up here and she was hired!
Growing up, Karen always knew she wanted to work in the animal field. She went to undergraduate and vet tech school at Purdue (go Boilers!) before she met a veterinarian, got married and opened up their own practice years ago.
Karen comes home to a 31-year old Pony named Bingo, an old roping horse named Paco and five cute kitty cats who help control the mice population. In her free time, you can find Karen spending valuable time with her wonderful kids (specifically watching them play basketball—go Vikings!), playing pickleball and racquetball, weight lifting and doing yard work, which helps her relax.
