Lori Van Kluyve

Receptionist

Hi, I’m Lori! I’ve been in Vet Med for 20+ years as a veterinary technician and just recently moved to the front desk after some non-work-related injuries. I have four dogs, three cats, three human children, and a husband, so our house is a zoo. My favorite breed is pitbull, and my passion is seeing the abused/neglected animals come to life after some TLC—it’s amazing what love can do for them!
