Kelsey

Technician

Education: University of North Texas, Bachelor of Fine Arts
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.
