Kristy did her National Certificate of Veterinary Nursing at CPIT in 2004 and has been at Marshall and Pringle ever since.
She has a special interest in critical care nursing, medical cases and ... lunch!
Outside the clinic Kristy is kept busy with her two young sons Lincoln and Fletcher and helping her partner Nick on their farm.
Kristy also enjoys reading and walking her two dogs when she has spare time (which isn't very often!)
