Karen is a 2011 graduate of Minnesota School of Business Veterinary Technology Program, where she earned her Certified Veterinary Technician license. After working in private small animal practice for two years, Karen started her career with Banfield in 2013. She loves being able to provide preventive health care to patients throughout their lives. Working with Mars Volunteer Program to promote giving back to pets in need in our community is a strong passion of hers as well.
