My name is Kelly. I’m currently a student at the University of Florida and work at the Avian & Exotic Clinic of Palm City during my breaks. I want to become a veterinarian one day and own my own clinic. I used to be a furry animal kind of person, but since I started working here, I have fallen in love with birds, reptiles and all the furry animals we help. Everyday is an adventure here and I can not wait to see you and your feathery / scaly / furry friend(s).
