Kaylyn

Receptionist

I am from the heart of Grand Rapids and I have loved every second of it! I’ve always had a passion for animals.  Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to work in the veterinary field. I grew up with two cats in my house at all times.  I love being a part of every pet’s life that comes through our doors! I really enjoy seeing pets grow up and transition through life! My favorite part of being a receptionist is that I am the first and last experience our clients have! I strive to make the experience here as good as it can be.  Having previous experience from a very large clinic, it was an amazing transition to a smaller clinic. Everyone here is a big family and I am very lucky to be a part of it! I can truly say I love EVERYONE here and that is pretty hard to find.  I currently live on the northwest side of Grand Rapids with my husband Ben, daughter Collins, two cats Felix and Oliver, our purebred mutt Mac and our deaf dog Howie.  When I’m not at work I enjoy baseball and hockey games with my husband and daughter.  During the summer our favorite thing to do is to take Mac and Howie to the dog beach! Nothing makes a dog more tired than playing in the water and sand.

Her favorite part of working at Plymouth Road is being able to help pets and owners get truly great care from our talented staff. She loves her job here and looks forward to working here for many years to come! She lives in her home in Grand Rapids with her husband Zach, her two dogs Peyton and Bella, and her cat Ethel. In her spare time she loves to attend music concerts, spend time with her friends and family, trying out different local breweries, and playing various sports.
