Chelsie, Veterinary Technician

Chelsie was raised in Refugio, Texas and graduated from Refugio High School in 2010. She started working at Hillcrest Animal Hospital in May 2011 as a Kennel Technician. Chelsie strived to do more and after completing certification classes online gradually moved her way up to become a Veterinary Technician.


Chelsie is versatile in all aspects of the clinic and continues striving to learn all she can, however she enjoys Dentistry the most. Chelsie and her fiance Ryan have 2 dogs, Cayson and Kiley who are toy Australian Shepherds. In her spare time, she enjoys doing different outdoor activities and spending time with family and friends.
