Salmon Creek Veterinary StaffKailyn Miller, Reception

My name is Kailyn Miller. I graduated from Eastern Washington University in 2013 with a degree in business (Go Eags!) and have been working at Salmon Creek Veterinary Clinic since February of 2017. I enjoy anything health and fitness related - primarily weight lifting. I also do foster care for the Southwest Washington Humane Society for kittens. I am very passionate about animal rescue and foster, and have been volunteering with the humane society since I was 15 years old. With all of the kittens I have fostered over the years, I have surprisingly managed to keep my limit at 2 cats of my own. I have a 6 year old dilute calico named Bella. I also have a 4 year old female tuxedo named Boppers.
