Growing up on a farm in central Ohio, Keely can’t remember a time when she wasn’t surrounded by pets and livestock. This experience sparked a deep passion for animal care. Whether it was nurturing the outdoor cats or sleeping in the barn, waiting for one of the goats to give birth, Keely was dedicated right from the start. As she grew older, a career in veterinary medicine seemed like the natural path. As a veterinary assistant, she gets to work doing what she loves the most!
Sandi’s interest in veterinary care stems from a strong sense of compassion for animals. She’s always felt an indelible bond between herself and those who are furry and four-legged. As a child, growing up in an apartment in suburban Chicago, Sandi remembers desperately longing for the day when her family could finally own a pet. Once that day finally came, she quickly made up for time by bringing home every animal she could, from stray puppies to rabbits and even a chinchilla. Being able to work in the veterinary field has been an absolute dream come true for her!
