Veterinary Office Manager
Kayla joined Market Street in July 2018. She has had a passion for animals since she was a child begging her parents for any animal they would let her have. She lives in West Viriginia with her family and their four animals. Kayla loves the close-knit, family feel of Market Street. She especially appreciates that it feels like a home rather than a clinic when you walk in and sees the difference this makes on the animals who are treated there and their humans. In her spare time, she enjoys practicing her photography skills and riding her horse, Krispy Kreme.

She is currently looking into going back to school to become a licensed technician. She was born in Baltimore, raised in Florida, and now lives in Aldie with her partner Matt, their five cats, and a corn snake.

Bart was found on a back road in Berkeley County, W.V. in July of 2017 as a young kitten. He lived as a barn cat, where he enjoyed chasing mice and the occasional horse back ride with boarders. He loved everyone who came to the barn, including kids.
Bart followed one of our staff members for about a year, and managed to sneak in her car a few times. She finally decided to take him in and give him a life indoors. Bart came in to the clinic to be seen by Dr. Katie and never left.
He has loved being indoors since day one, and quickly adjusted to life in a clinic. Bart enjoys laying in the sun, sitting in clients’ laps, being pet, standing and laying in inconvenient places, and meal time.
