Kristina

Customer Service Representative
Kristina's Bio
Hello, my name is Kristina, and I have been working as a Client Service Representative since 2010. I found my home here at Huntington Beach Pet Hospital in 2016. It was important to me to be part of a practice that is making a difference not only with our patients but with the owners as well. My passion for working in the veterinary field and my experience, continue to grow every day. When I’m not working, you’ll find me spending time relaxing with my husband, daughter, and my two dogs, Layla and Alvin. I also love pet sitting so when I’m not taking care of my own pets you’ll see me taking care of someone else’s. One of my favorite places is in Laguna at the tide pools where my fascination for the ocean runs away!
