Chrisi is a wife, mother, and long time Benbrook-ian. She graduated from Western Hills High School and then attended Texas A&M University where she graduated with a degree in Animal Behavior.

Chrisi finds it hard to have hobbies as a working wife and mother – but she wouldn’t have it any other way! Her interests have always been in the ever changing, challenging world of the veterinary business. She loves Dr. Daniels and the Animal Doctors staff and looks forward to working alongside them every day.

Kayla  photo


My name is Kayla. I've worked with dogs for about 15 years. Dogs are my passion and I couldn't imagine working without them. When I was given a job at a vet clinic when I was 16, it transformed the way I see the world. I have four dogs, a 1-year-old Golden Retriever named Archie who is the silliest of boys, a 2-year-old border collie mix named Emerald she keeps me on my toes, but I couldn't imagine life without her. I also have a foster fail chihuahua who is my shadow and a  chihuahua that thinks he’s big. My 14-year-old son shares my passion and I hope he continues to share that passion into adulthood.
