Kari is as sweet as can be. She always has a friendly smile on her face to greet everyone as they walk through our doors each day. She is amazing with our clients and their fur children. We are lucky to have her!
Kari joined the Mountain Ridge team in October of 2021. She is originally from Southern California. She spent 11 years in the bay area of California before moving to Colorado. Kari explains that she has always loved being around animals, big and small, so she knew this was the perfect job for her! She started out as a Veterinary Receptionist at an animal hospital in California and that is where she fell in love with the field! Kari graduated in 2012 with an AA in Business Medical Office from Gavilan College in Gilroy California. She has 1 dog, his name is Nathan and he is a sheltie mix. He enjoys coming to work with Kari and going to our doggy daycare! She also has a black cat named Soma, a grey tabby named Ninkasi, and an orange and white kitten named Savina. Kari's hobbies include hanging out with her fur babies & her husband and checking out all of the cool things to do around Colorado like hiking, going to breweries, and going to concerts.
