Licensed Veterinary Technicians


Karen has been a licensed veterinary technician since 2013. She was born in San Diego, CA and now lives in northern Nevada with her 2 dogs Bortje and Serra, her cat Maui, and four hens. When she isn’t working or studying, she enjoys hiking, backpacking, and gardening, and loves any kind of berry pie. A dream vacation for her would be Tahiti or Bora Bora and she’d love to meet Charles Darwin. A favorite book for her is “All My Patients Are Under the Bed.” Karen puts her high energy to good use with her furry patients and very much enjoys her job here at A Plus Animal Hospital.




Veterinary Technicians in Training



Katelynn has been a member of our kennel staff since December 2010. She was born and raised in Reno, graduated in 2009 from the Motorcycle Maintenance Institute, and is currently at TMCC, studying for her licensed veterinary technician degree. Some of her hobbies include horseback riding, riding ATVs and sand rails, training rescue dogs, and playing tennis. Katelynn shares her home with her cat, Spazz, two Springer Spaniels named KC and Demo, and a sweet pit bull named Lilly. When she has some free time, she enjoys Italian food and watching her favorite TV shows – Bones, CSI, and The Big Bang Theory. If Katelynn could be any animal she’d be a horse so she could run free. Her idea of a dream vacation is to Hawaii, but her favorite vacation spot is Las Vegas! She says her sister is her hero because of the unwavering super she receives from her.




Jenny has been a part of the A Plus team since 2007 – she started out in boarding and eventually transferred to the veterinary assistant department where she works today. She’s a Reno native, having graduated from Hug High School in 1997. In her free time she goes hiking up in the mountains and spends time with family, friends, and her loveable pets –two dogs named Maggie & Patches and four cats named Cori, Boo, Sunny, and Jake. Jenny is a fan of The Big Bang Theory on TV and her favorite foods are Mexican and pizza. Her favorite thing about working at A Plus Animal Hospital is the fulfillment she experiences when a pet comes in feeling poorly and goes home feeling great!
