Kristen Young, Veterinary Assistant
Kristen has lived in Freeland her entire life, and her parents have even been taking all their animals to Gratiot Animal Hospital for over 25 years. She ended up working here because she enjoyed the friendly and caring staff, and Dr. Gilbert personally asked her if she wanted to apply so she eagerly did and eventually joined the team.
Currently, Kristen is a junior at SVSU and plans to apply to the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy program in the fall of 2019. Of course, Kristen is an animal lover because they are such loyal companions who bring nothing but joy to all of our everyday lives.
Currently, she has two pets at home: a golden retriever/chow named Brandy, who is all about bananas, apples and strawberries; and Bella, a Yorkie/bichon who loves playing ball and chasing squirrels and is always ready when it comes time for bed.
In her free time, Kristen enjoys the summer and going on nature walks to look for wildlife. She loves being outside and during the winter, tries to read as much as she can when she’s not studying for exams.
