As a child, Kevin would spend summers on his grandparents’ dairy farm in northern Wisconsin. He always looked forward to caring for the livestock and pets there, and credits those experiences with sparking his love of animal care. Now he serves as a full-time Veterinary Technician here at Austin Urban Vet Center!
After high school, Kevin had the opportunity to join a small-animal veterinary team near his hometown of Kenosha, Wisconsin. After a few years, he moved to California to escape the harsh Wisconsin winters. There, he worked in two different practices over the next four years before moving to Austin to be closer to his brother and sister.
As a Tech, Kevin’s primary goal is to strengthen the bond between pets and their owners. He loves talking to people about their furry companions, and advising clients on health issues and care is extremely gratifying for him. Medically, he particularly enjoys surgical assisting, radiography, and dental work.
At home, Kevin has two pets. Chucks is a cat that Kevin has had since she fit in his palm. She even knows the sound of Kevin’s truck and runs to greet him at the door. More recently, a dog named Scout came into Kevin’s life when he was dropped off at Austin Urban Vet Center. Luckily, Chucks doesn’t mind having him around!
