Andrea graduated from High School in Pleasant Hill, CA. She migrated east to attend Rutgers University and graduated with a B.S. in Animal Science. After graduation she returned to California to work at Carnation Genetics, first learning, and then teaching embryo transfer in cattle.
Three years later, she accepted a position as Lab Manager for Granada Genetics in Marquez, Texas. Battling humidity, various bugs & ticks, she was relieved when she was transferred back to California where she continued in Embryo Transfer until 2001.
Andrea decided to switch over to small animal and worked in the Coalinga Animal Clinic for 11 years. Looking forward to retiring sometime, she decided to move to Redding to indulge in her new hobbies – photography and hiking.
Growing up in a large family with pets of a large variety, Keri was always tending to their “pretend” wounds as well as chores associated with domestic and farm animals.
Homeschooled most of her life she formed lifelong friendships with those closest to her. Before graduating high school she worked as a Veterinary Technician, learning all she could before attending Carrington College of Veterinary Technology where she graduated in 2011.
She enjoys Painting, Drawing and all Outdoor activities. Keri resides in Redding with her 3 dogs – Michi, Bailey and Chiquita.
