AAH welcomed Kristen Whitley to our reception staff in March of 2018 after she moved to our area from Chesapeake, Virginia. Following an internship with our senior groomer, she joined our grooming staff in January of 2021. Kristen began her early education in private school, and then was homeschooled until her graduation in 2010. She was formerly employed at a large animal shelter in the Chesapeake area.
Being the daughter of a veterinary assistant, Kristen grew up around a veterinary practice, and is an avid animal lover. She knew from an early age that working with animals was her calling. She shares her home and her love with a cat named Luna, and dog named Mishka. Also an enthusiast of the arts, Kristen passionately draws, reads, and makes jewelry. Her beautiful, warm smile and outgoing personality make her a wonderful addition to our team.
