Hometown: Burnet, Tx
Pets: Giorgio, Tika

Special Veterinary Interests : Behavior disorders, dermatology and internal medicine.

Dr. Santos grew up in Burnet, TX on a small ranch. Her passion for veterinary medicine comes from her mother’s passion for human medicine and her father’s passion for native Texas wildlife. She followed that passion to Texas A&M University to get a Bachelor’s Degree in Biomedical Science with a minor in Spanish. While finishing her undergraduate degree she traveled abroad to provide veterinary services to rural, underserved communities in Mexico where she met her husband, Jaime. Dr. Santos and Jaime currently live in Round Rock with their two girls, Annabelle and Susan, and their dogs, Georgio and Tika. Tika is a Malenois mix adopted from the animal shelter in 2009 and tends to have anxiety issues. Georgio was adopted from a Dalmatian breeding program in 2013 and loves everyone! While her children and family occupy most of her free time, other hobbies she enjoys are: painting, reading, watching movies and traveling.

Veterinary Technician

Education: University of North Texas, Bachelor of Fine Arts
Hometown: Holland, Tx
Pets: Scarlett, Clarence, and FISH

Kelsey grew up, right here, in the Temple area. She’s always had a passion for animals. Graduating with an associate’s degree from Temple College she moved forward to pursue a BFA in Photography from the University of North Texas, photographing animals all along the way. She scored an internship at the Dallas Zoo as a photography intern during her time in college and that’s when she knew her life would forever revolve around animals. After graduating, a veterinary technician job became available so she thought, why not? And that leads us to where we are today.
Kelsey discovered her love for birds while she was working at the Dallas Zoo and now has two feathered friends: Clarence, the parakeet, and Scarlett, a Solomon Island Eclectus. She also has a passion for aquatics and currently has five aquariums ranging from 100 gallons large to 5 gallons small. In her spare time while she’s not caring for her pets, she enjoys playing games, tending to her jungle of houseplants, and surfing the internet.
