Kyja is originally from Seoul, South Korea but has lived in Lakeville, MN since 1995. She graduated from Argosy University in 2014 with an AAS degree and has been a certified veterinary technician since 2014. With 4+ years of experience and 2 certifications under her belt, she happily joined the Banfield team in July of 2018. She is also certified in companion laser therapy. At home, she has a teacup Yorkie, Luca; a 3-legged Pomeranian, Mickey; and 2 torti cats, Kiara and Masi. Although, the brigade of small animals keeps her on her feet, she likes to play piano in her spare time (helps a lot as a stress reliever!). She also enjoys spending time outside doing a number of activities such as bike riding, helping her parents with their yard work, and going on ice cream (pup cup) runs when necessary!
