    Hi, my name is Krystal.  I am currently in school at Brown Mackie.  My field of study is veterinary technology.  I am also a full time mom to a beautiful son who was born October 31, 2014.  He is my pride and joy.  I also have two fur babies--Buster and Gracie.  In my spare time, I like to be doing something outside.  I grew up on a farm, so my passion has always been animals.                 

  • Barb

    IT/Inventory Management

    I have been with Clough Pike Vet Clinic since 2004.  I have always loved animals and at one time had aspirations of being a veterinarian myself, but between you and me, I think we're better off leaving that to Drs. Kelch and Santangelo.  I also work part time from home as a medical transcriptionist.  When not working, I enjoy needlework and travel.  My husband, Jim, and I have 2 grown children, a son-in-law, 2 grandchildren, and 2 spoiled cats.
