Kirsten was born and raised in Minnesota. She obtained her AAS degree from Argosy University in 2011 and shortly after became a Certified Veterinary Technician. In 2015 moved out to Colorado and joined the Overland Team. Since stepping into more of a lead role in 2017, she has been learning and growing with the practice. Free time is something that does not exist for her anymore, but when not at Overland, she is raising two amazing babies, Rhees and Russell, as well as taking care of three senior dogs and two kitty cats.
