Kayla K. joined the Four Seasons family in August of 2021. If customer service was an olympic sport Kayla f=would be a 6 year gold medalist with her prior experience and with how she has handled this transition to our facility. She is our very own fountain of happiness in calm in the chaos that is veterinary medicine. It's been so great to see her flourish and bring smiles to our clients and wiggling and wagging tails to our canine patients. Coming from Eastern Michigan Univerisity, being in this part of the mitten was not unfamiliar. Kayla is known for her LOVE, yes all caps, of pugs like her little gal Izzy, and cats like her fur-avorite pet Crowley. When she isn't rocking out at the front desk you can find Kayla painting, taking pictures, disc golfing, playing volleyball and softball and even fossil hunting!
Katelyn S. arrived to our practice with exactly no direct experience in the veterinary world. She had plently of time spent managing both humans and animals alike for the past nine years at the Howell Nature Center, but with her current goal of going back to vet school, it just made sense to jump in here! Just like our practice owner, Katelyn celebrates with the Spartans of MSU, and carries both a degree in graphic design and a concentration of Animal Behavior and Neurobiology. Four seasons may be a long way from the injured wildlife and orphaned babies (like squirrels, hawks, falcons, coyotes, humminbirds and more) of her past, it still has the same sort of people - passionate and invested in the best possible animal care and client education! She has her very own zoo at home with three dogs, Byrd, Iris and Mozzerella; along with three chinchillas (Momo, Beans and Chilli Mac), and dozens of fish, a 17 year old turtle, and the many wildlife and domestic fosters who pass through on their way to their fur-ever homes whether they be back in nature of in a home like yours!
