    Courtney Benso

    Practice Manager

    Courtney grew up surrounded by animals in her family home in Staten Island, New York. As a child, she dreamed of working with animals, but pursued a bachelor’s degree in filmmaking instead. In 2006, she co-produced a web series for that showcased her love and passion for dogs. The series helped motivate her to follow her heart back to animal care. She began volunteering at shelters, dog walking and home boarding, and eventually established her own pet care company. In 2014, Courtney took her love for animal care a step further and joined the Banfield team as a veterinary assistant. Over the next few years, she was promoted to shift lead and eventually, practice manager. Currently, she is pursuing an associate’s degree in the Penn Foster Veterinary Technician program.

    Kelly has been with Banfield since May 2018, and is pursuing a degree to become a veterinary technician, graduating in April 2020. Her passion for animal care comes from her deep love for her pets - Lucy, a border collie/lab mix, and Dinah, a tabby cat. Outside of work, Kelly loves to spend time with her family (especially her two sisters, two nieces, and nephew). You can often find them hiking, roller-skating, jumping on the trampoline, going to parks and movies, or doing various crafts.

These things motivate her every day, and drive her to continue her education in veterinary medicine as far as she possibly can. More Details >>
