Kyra has been a Certified Veterinary Technician for 6 years. She grew up in New Tripoli and Kempton, and her mom was one of our very first clients more than 30 years ago!
Growing up on a farm Kyra was born and raised to take care of animals. This lead her to the decision to go to school to become a certified veterinary technician. Although Kyra loves all types of animals, she is a horse girl at heart! She currently trains and shows her own barrel horses and hopes to compete on a national level one day.
Prior to starting at Silver Maple, Kyra worked at a few different veterinary hospitals across the Lehigh Valley and Quakertown area. Kyra says, “ The best part about this profession is seeing these animals go home wagging their tails or purring with their owners. I’ve tended to many sick patients who were close to the brink of death, it is so rewarding to be a part of their clinical progress and giving them the chance to go home with their family.”
In her free time Kyra is either at the barn or doing something outside. Summer is her favorite time of year and she is usually busy traveling to horse shows, going jeeping, or attending bonfires. Kyra also used to volunteer time at a therapeutic riding center for handicap kids. She really enjoyed it and thought it was so amazing to be a part of. Unfortunately, she hasn’t had time to volunteer but someday hope to again.
In school Kyra received a plaque award for excellence in veterinary medicine. Her high grades, determination, and compassion led her to that achievement. We are excited for you all to meet Kyra and are thrilled to have her as a new addition to the Silver Maple Veterinary Clinic team!
