Kelsey obtained her bachelor’s degree in animal science at Louisiana State University in her hometown of New Orleans. Currently, in her fourth year studying to become a doctor of veterinary medicine, Kelsey joins Craig Road Animal Hospital as our newest D.V.M. extern.

Growing up with a variety of pets, Kelsey has always wanted to become a veterinarian. “My mom has a piece of paper from kindergarten where we all signed up for what we wanted to be when we grew up and next to my name is ‘an animal doctor’, and I’ve never changed it,” she said.

When asked what she expects to gain from her time at Craig Road Animal Hospital, she answered, “I want to improve my general skills working through cases efficiently.”

When she isn’t studying, Kelsey is very active and plays flag football as well as softball. She also enjoys playing guitar. Back home in New Orleans, Kelsey has chow mix pup named Beau.
