In her free time, she loves to go to the lake and spend time on their boat!

Brittney Scott

Veterinary Assistant

Brittney has been part of the team since 2005. Growing up she always had a passion for animals and would often smuggle stray kittens or a new amphibian friend into the house. She shares her home with Amos, the charming Cardigan Welsh Corgi and Stevie, a Leopard Gecko. As a jack of all trades, you can find her dividing her time between providing patient care during your pet's visit, answering any questions that our clients may have over the phone or doing some of the more behind-the-scenes work involved to ensure that our office runs seamlessly. Her goal is to improve the experience of both our patients and their humans alike through compassion and top-notch care. When she's not running around our clinic, Brittney enjoys navigating the exciting world of dog sports and stays active jump-starting Amos’s career in rally, scent work and Fast CAT. She's also a huge Disney fan and loves visiting any (and all) of the Disney Parks!

Kenzie McAtee

Tech Assistant

Kenzie recently graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. If Kenzie looks familiar to you, it might be because she’s Trish’s daughter! Growing up, she was involved in agriculture through FFA and being in a farming community. Kenzie will continue to further her education by going to grad school in the fall, and ultimately, her career focus is within the livestock community she is so passionate about. She recently brought home a darling little Cockapoo named Hattie, and they’re busy working hard in their first puppy classes! In her free time, Kenzie enjoys spending time with friends, has her own small photography business and is limitless with her talents in multiple jewelry and clothing crafts!
