​​​​​​​Introducing Kristin, one of the skilled technicians specializing in surgical procedures at PASE. Kristin hails from Allentown, New Jersey, where she was born and raised. At the age of 12, Kristin discovered her deep affection for animals and aspired to pursue a career dedicated to their care. During her junior year at Penn State, she had an invaluable opportunity to intern at a breeding farm, further reinforcing her passion.
Initially, Kristin embarked on her veterinary journey by working with horses in the equine medicine field for several years. Among the various aspects of Equine medicine, her favorite was tending to the needs of young foals.
