Kelley Johnson
Specialty Technician Supervisor LVT, CVT
Kelley has always had a love for animals. Growing up, she was always bringing home stray animals and knew any career working with animals was the career for her. Straight from high school she pursued a certification in Veterinary Technology at LaGuardia Community College where she received her A.S in Applied Animal Science and started working for her local veterinarian. She has been a Licensed Veterinary Technician since 2005. After working in general practice, she sought to expand her knowledge and had developed a passion for surgery. Kelley worked here at VREC Westbury for 8 years in our Surgery department and then transferred to Arizona where she was the Surgery Supervisor at our sister hospital VCA ARECA for 5 years. She has recently come back home to us here at VREC Westbury as our Specialty Technician Supervisor.

In her free time, she enjoys going to sporting events, traveling and anything outdoors. She is fur mama to 3 purrfect kitties: Hershey, a Siamese mix; her rescue Moaning Mona, a Burmese kitty; and her new bottle raised kitten, Oscar the grouch.
