MEET THE CLIENT SERVICE STAFF AT PACIFIC ANIMAL HOSPITAL
Kimberly started her career in the veterinary field just out of high school. After leaving the work force for a number of years in order to raise her family, she returned to the field joining the team at Pacific Animal Hospital in 2002. She was fortunate enough to be able to spend a couple of years living abroad in American Samoa where she was able to assist the local humane society and work with the volunteer organization Animal Balance to help provide much needed medical care, as well as spaying and neutering, to the animals of this island. Although Kimberly has worked as both a receptionist and technician with Pacific Animal Hospital, and continues to do so on occasion, she is currently our Business Manager. Kimberly continues to be passionate about her chosen field and loves working with both the pets and their wonderful people! She has many animals of her own including a cat, a pit bull, two Chihuahuas and two Samoan "purebreds" which she brought home with her from her time in Samoa.
