Kindle McKenzie, CVT


Certified Veterinary Technician

Kindle was born in Fort Collins, CO and lived southwest of there with her parents and older brother. At the age of 5 she and her family moved to Lusk, WY to live on here grandparent’s ranch. Being home schooled until her teen years, Kindle had many opportunities to be involved with ranch life. This included working cows, roping calves, late night calf watch and starting her first colt at the age of 9. Sadly the ranch was sold when she was 13 and her family moved to Encampment WY. There she attended high school and was very active in both sports and agriculture activities. She continued to train and work with horses throughout high school and college, whether it was showing or just day working for local ranches. 

Kindle later attended Eastern Wyoming College and received her degree as a Certified Veterinary Technician. After becoming certified she began working at a mixed animal practice in Gillette WY. After two years of working in a mixed practice she realized her true passion was large animals. 

In December of 2012 she accepted a position at Countryside Large Animal Vet, she has worked under many of the Veterinarians over the years. She now assists our intern Veterinarian and works in the front office. Kindle lives in Wellington CO with her husband Austin. Together they have three border collies, Spur, Podrick, and Yara, one cat Ophelia and several horses. Kindle enjoys being in the mountains, hunting, traveling with her husband, riding her horses, spending time with family and friends, art and music. Kindle would someday like to travel the world, work in a zoo, own a team of draft horses and raise a family.
