Kennedy Wilson – Veterinary Technician
(Pictured on the right)
Kennedy was born and raised in Steubenville Ohio. She moved to Florida with her family in the summer of 2013. When Kennedy was in high school she volunteered at local animal shelters. Working with the animals ignited the passion she has for helping and healing animals. Kennedy turned that love and passion for animal health into a career in 2014, when she began working as a Veterinary Technician. She lives in Ellenton Florida, with her family and fur babies. Her furry children include; Jack an 8 year old pit/lab mix, Echo a 3 year old American Bully, Oliver a Tuxedo kitty, and Pixie a 7 year old Chiweenie that came through Keystone as a rescue in very bad shape, but nursed back to health by Kennedy and the team. Kennedy was the only other founding technician that helped to open the doors of Keystone Animal Hospital. She was looking for something different, a different way of providing care for animals and their clients. She loved working with Dr. Sara in the past, and knew that with Dr. Sara’s help she could expand her abilities for helping animals in a welcoming and calming environment. In her spare time she enjoys being with family and friends and spending time outside, especially on the water where she is an avid fisher.
