Kyle is a Licensed Veterinary Technician, who has been working in the veterinary field since 2010. In addition to his work at Ballard Animal Hospital, he is involved in CE's, is a member of the zoo, goes on daily runs with Rigby, and is the go-to guy when his friends have questions about their animals. He is a calm, efficient and hard worker, who can (believe it or not) also be quite a chatterbox! Kyle has three pets: Rigby (a terrier mix) and Lola & Moka (both domestic short-haired cats). Rigby is overly enthusiastic and not great at picking up on social queues. Cutest thing? Backing her butt into you until you pet her. Lola is an independent, hungry cat who dislikes being picked up and never covers anything up in her litter box. Moka is needy, temperamental and jealous, and will not allow anyone but Kyle to pet him. He still sleeps on Kyle’s pillow as he did when he was a kitten, though he now tops the scales at 13 pounds!
Originally from Kent, Chelsey moved to San Diego for the adventure and while she was there, she went to school to become a licensed veterinary technician. She moved back to Seattle with her boyfriend to be closer to family. Outside of work, she loves reading romance novels, crafting, painting & being outdoors hiking with her dogs. She has a friendly Great Dane named Duke. He weighs 154 lbs but thinks he weighs 5 lbs! His biggest fear is the laundry basket! She also has a terrier mix named Kado who loves anything with hands because he loves to be pet. He's their police officer, always on patrol. He's obsessed with protecting Duke, and he's only 15 lbs!

Jen is a licensed veterinary technician hailing from Trenton, NJ. She graduated from the University of MD, College Park with a degree in Zoology and moved to Seattle for an internship at PAWS Wildlife Center. After 12 years of working for the Bird & Exotic Clinic here in Seattle, she joined our team in 2014 to get more experience working with cats & dogs. Outside of work, Jen likes to hike, bike, rollerblade and travel. Jen has two cats, Yeti and Lucian, and one Blue-Fronted Amazon named Charlie (pictured). Yeti is a lovebug and Lucian never stops talking.  Charlie is about 48, swears in German, and thinks homemade hummus is the best snack. Jen is interested in animal welfare and rescue, and is always conscious of doing what is right for both companion animals and wildlife.
Sam is a veterinary assistant and has been practicing since September 2012, beginning with an internship as a surgical assistant at a humane society. She serves as an events coordinator on the board of directors for Equine Aide Horse and Donkey Rescue located in Monroe, WA. She also volunteers her time with Art! for Animals' Sake.  Sam has two tabby cats at home- Mr. Tooth (aka Papa) and Baby- who are needy and loving, and lazy and mischievious, respectively. While Mr. Tooth is known for carefully stealing thumb tacks out of posters with his teeth and dropping them into shoes, Baby is notorious for nibbling on plants until they wilt, regardless of how high up they're moved. While they appreciate that Sam is willing to let them take up the whole bed at night, they are disappointed that she will not allow them to nap on the kitchen table.
Samantha was born in Yakima, Washington, and recently finished her externship through PIMA Medical Institute. She developed her love of animals while growing up in Montana and having bunnies, horses, cows, goats, dogs, cats, deer, chinchillas, and even sugar gliders as pets! Her mom's work as a surgical technician and Samantha's deep love of animals helped her to decide to become a veterinary technician. She loves the outdoors, reading and spending time with her friends, family and fiancé. Since moving to the city in 2012, Samantha has one spoiled rotten Tuxedo cat named Sir Artimas Clyde. He is three years old and loves fetch, kitty play dates and bringing twigs into the house as treasures.

Originally from Seattle, Made grew up in Cashmere, WA, returning to Seattle after graduating from high school. She just completed her assistant training at PIMA and is already enrolled to complete her veterinary technician training. She loves all animals, but is obsessed with cats. Sadly, she can only have one cat at this time, Julien, because he's not animal friendly (at all!). Julien is a character, though, so he keeps her entertained. He loves walking on his leash, shredding toilet paper (code: I don't like my food!), and periodically he opens every cabinet door in her house as a greeting when she arrives home.

Mishra got interested in being a veterinary assistant when his family would take their pets to the vet. Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Mishra's family moved to the Seattle area when he was little. He enjoys games of all kinds -- video games, card games, board games. Mishra has five rats: Monty, Moony, Gemma, Penny & Margaery. (He recently adopted the last two.) He likes rats because they are extremely intelligent, very sociable, and live beautifully in packs. They can be observed caring about each other and showing empathy.
