  • Krista

    Receptionist/Pet Care Nurse

    My name is Krista.  I am a proud mother of a beautiful 3-year-old daughter.  My husband and I are also parents to 3 loveable dogs and I can't forget our 3 rambunctious cats.  I have worked as a pet care nurse at Clough Pike Vet Clinic for the past 2 years.  During my off time, one of the things I like to do is gardening.  I love beautiful flowers and the chance I also get to show my daughter how all those vegetables that she eats grow from seeds.  My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family.  I feel very blessed for that hobby.  I feel very fortunate for having the chance to work at Clough Pike Veterinary clinic and all the other awesome staff members.  I would like to take the chance to thank all the clients of Clough Pike for choosing us.  It's given me the chance to work with memorable pets, fun and very caring staff members, and the best bosses you could ever ask for.  Thank you all so much!

  • 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, 2 spoiled cats, and 1 stubborn goat (aren't they all?).
