Kim Johnson, Veterinary Technician
Kim has been a Veterinary Technician for about 10 years. Before joining our team at Centreville, she worked in shelter medicine where she gained experience as lead surgery technician. She was brought away from high volume shelter medicine to Centreville on the prospect of developing long term relationships with clients. In five years Kim would love to continue being a part of the Centreville family and to continue doing what she enjoys. Kim lives with her beautiful 12 year old daughter and their two cats, a large Maine Coon and a Siamese. While not working, Kim enjoys being outside and riding horses. Her superpower is laughter as she loves to help put a smile on everyone’s faces.

Gabby Quinlan, Practice Manager
