Like many of her colleagues, Keila decided to pursue a career in the veterinary field out of a deep desire to help animals. Growing up in Harrison Country, she spent most of her time outdoors, playing with her dog and dreaming of one day working with animals as a career. Today, as a veterinary technician, Keila has been able to bring her childhood dream to fruition!
Keila worked at a couple other clinics before joining the Animal Hospital of Lanesville team in April of 2022. When asked what the favorite part of her job is, she has a difficult time answering. That’s because there’s no aspect she doesn’t enjoy!
At home, Keila has five fur babies of her own, including two dogs and three cats. Luna, a bi-eyed pit bull mix, was rescued in 2020 and has proven to be such a blessing. Daisy, a beagle, may be getting on in age, but still acts like a puppy. Roscoe and Cooter are indoor cats who take laziness to an extreme – unless, of course, it involves food. And, finally, there is Boots, a handsome and sweet outdoor kitty.
Aside from animals, Keila’s other passion is volleyball. She recently began coaching children and is loving every second of it.
