Kasey spent time growing up on her grandparents’ farm in Bristol, Tennessee when she was very young. It was there that she made her first connections to the earth’s creatures—caring for the farm animals made a permanent impression that hasn’t wavered to this day. Kasey always knew that she was destined for a career in animal medicine!
Kasey is originally from Baltimore and launched her career in animal care by volunteering at the Baltimore Zoo while she was still in high school. After several Volunteer-of-the-Month awards, she was offered a position as a Zookeeper Assistant! Kasey worked there for the next three years and developed a love for reptiles, amphibians, and birds; she was even profiled in the Catonsville and Arbutus Times for her work. Next, she took a job at a local pet store as an Animal Care Specialist, developing her customer service sills, before signing on at another local animal hospital to learn the ropes of the veterinary profession.
Kasey joined the Glen Burnie Animal Hospital team in 2012 as a Veterinary Technician. She has special interests in dental work, and also loves to assist during surgeries. Kasey’s favorite part of her job, though, is getting to meet a wide variety of pets and their loving owners every day!
Most of Kasey’s hobbies outside of work involve animal care as well. She takes care of stray cat colonies in the wintertime, feeding and providing shelter during the coldest months, and also frequently pet-sits for friends and clients. Along with her husband and their young son, Kasey shares her home with three cats—Jynx, Bunny, and Yas—as well as an Eastern Box Turtle and nine aquariums full of freshwater exotic fish.
