Kasey has long adored anatomy, physiology and helping animals who are unable to help themselves. Her desire to be that help is what drove her to a career in veterinary medicine, along with her work in wildlife rehabilitation. Kasey loves that each day at Alpine is different than the last, and that there are endless opportunities to learn new things, and see something different and exciting.

Carl, Kasey’s stray Harry Potter cat, chose his house, and now lives in her basement with his own room. Widget, her dog, came from a shelter in Gary, Indiana and has moved three times with Kasey, including across the country. Smokey was the smallest kitten of three litters, loves mischief and sitting on your shoulder.

If Kasey’s not at work, and not working doing wildlife rehabilitation, she enjoys hiking, perusing antique stores, and collecting old science and medical books.
