Kelly Lugo - Practice Coordinator
Kelly has been working with animals since 1993. Working throughout high school as a vet assistant - cemented her love for animals. After receiving her BS in Animal Science from Rutgers University, Kelly re-thought her original plan to become a veterinarian. She left the veterinary field to become a General Manager of an upscale pet care facility for 16 years. Making pets and their parents happy are second nature to Kelly. She is upbeat, cheerful and objective. Calming people down - whether it be on the phone or in person - and calming pets down almost to the point of putting them in a trance .. are some of the things we have often seen her do!
Kelly left the corporate kennel environment to return to her first love of veterinary medicine at Park View Veterinary Hospital. Realizing that a lot of behavioral issues are due to the inability of the human caretaker to train or communicate their needs to their pets, client education, pet nutrition, behavior and wellness have become her passions within the field. Kelly has special expertise in dealing with shy and fearful pets and gains their trust so they become approachable. She is certified through the Red Cross in Pet First Aid and volunteers at her local animal shelter where she is on the advisory board.
She enjoys spending time with her husband, kids and three dogs and is constantly making us aware that cluttering up our lives with unnecessary things or issues - is of no use to anyone! "it's all small stuff" is her basic tenet!
