After graduating from The University of Rochester with a music degree and biology minor, Kristine moved to New York City to continue her studies in musical theater. Music business burn-out led Kristine to an Upper West Side small animal hospital where she had the pleasure of meeting Regis’ cat and Kathleen Turner’s boxer. With a desire to learn more about canine behavior, she moved to Texas and received her certification in training and behavior from Triple Crown Academy
. Kristine then moved back to her home town in Pennsylvania to operate her dog training business for several years. A desire to help her clients even more led her to PennVet and soon after, a certification in veterinary acupuncture. Integrative medicine is her passion, along with dentistry and nutrition. She enjoys off-hours with her Australian Cattle Dog, her Orange Cat, and her husband.
