Meet Dr. Kelly Pipkin
Dr. Kelly Pipkin earned her veterinary degree at UC Davis in 2016, accomplishing her lifelong dream of becoming a vet. Growing up in Orange County California, Kelly was involved in her local 4H club and raised many rabbits, chickens, and sheep to show at the county fair. Kelly went to Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo for her undergrad degree in Animal Science and then went straight to UC Davis for vet school. She loves all aspects of veterinary medicine but chose to join a small animal hospital in Fairfax because of its perfect family-oriented atmosphere, beautiful location, and great clients and patients.
In her personal life, Kelly is happily married and living in San Anselmo where she enjoys exploring the country drives and hiking opportunities, taking trips to wine country, and experiencing all of the small town social events. Kelly and her husband, Brandon, met at Cal Poly as students in 2011 and were married immediately after she finished vet school at a vineyard in Sacramento. Almost immediately after getting married, Kelly and Brandon adopted a rescue dog, Penny, from Family Dog Rescue in San Francisco. Penny fits right in with any adventure that her "parents" take.
Outside of work, Kelly likes hiking, wine tasting, experimenting with new recipes, and spending as much time outside as possible. In the clinic, Kelly enjoys working with a variety of animals ranging from dogs and cats to rabbits and chickens. The diversity of patients at Fairfax vet clinic keeps things interesting and each day treating animals is fulfilling.
