Kelsey has been with Horton Central for 5 years, loves working with the animals, but for her its all about the people, if they’re happy, she’s happy. smile

Diamond has attained her Associate’s degree in Animal Science from the Vet Tech Institute at Hickey College in Saint Louis, Missouri. After interning at the Horton Central practice following her graduation, she’s continued to work under Dr. Hussey, enjoying her days with the awesome staff and wonderful clients.
