Kristin Garlick, MSA, BS, CVPM
Business Consultant & Financial Manager
Kristin Garlick built her experience through a varied background as a Career Recruiter, Residential Property Manager, Director of Finance in a referral and 24-hour emergency practice, and an AAHA Practice Consultant. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management, her Master’s of Science in Accountancy, and the designation as a CVPM in 2013. She spends her time promoting the veterinary community volunteering for the Minnesota Veterinary Medical Foundation and was named a 2013 Emerging Leader in Veterinary Management from the VHMA.
Kristin shares her home with an adoptive four-legged family. The oldest in her brood is a Fish, a Siamese mix, who was hit by a car and surrendered to the emergency clinic. Then there is a bearded dragon, who was found on the side of the highway with a very large gash on her side named Archi. Next is Steeeve!, a deaf Domestic Short Hair tabby, who was a stray with neurologic issues. Jarvis, half pit bull/half bulldog, was found wandering the streets on the coldest night of the year after suffering from abuse and neglect. The newest is Cricket, another pit bull adopted from Alabama. Needless to say, they all allow Kristin to share her life with them.
