Dr. Kelly Farmer first knew she wanted to be a Veterinarian at the age of 6. A Kansas native, Dr. Farmer had a collection of pets and volunteered in her community with her dog, Lassie throughout her childhood. She was the Senior Canine Rehabilitation Volunteer at the local animal shelter while an undergraduate student at Kansas State University.
During her undergraduate studies, Dr. Farmer was an Early Admissions Veterinary Scholar at Kansas State University and attained Spanish proficiency through a Study Abroad program in Spain. While completing her undergraduate work she was admitted to the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) through a program called the Atlantic Bridge Program. The Bridge Program allows for a number of non-British students to attend the RVC in London, England to receive their degree in Veterinary Medicine. While completing the 5-year program, Dr. Farmer held externships in Wales, Northern Ireland, The Republic of Ireland, England, and the United States. In 2010, she received her medical degree from the Royal Veterinary College, graduating as a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (BVetMed MRCVS).
After returning to the United States, Dr. Farmer worked at a busy small animal clinic for 2 years before starting a Veterinary Relief business through which she worked at over 40 different hospitals! Additionally, she provided consultation and training services for technicians and reception teams. During these years she also worked regularly providing Emergency and Critical Care at referral and specialty centers. After enjoying many years of varied experiences, Dr. Farmer was ready to find a hospital to call home and is grateful and excited to have joined our team. At home, she enjoys reading, baking, and a busy life with her husband Sean and their three human children who are 2, 6, and 8, as well as their three dogs, 11-year-old Baloo and two one-year-olds named Nigel Bentley and Huck.
