Kimberlee Muir

Head Technician, Director of Medical Production

Kimberlee Muir attended Weber State University about 5 years ago. She is currently working towards becoming a veterinarian hoping to attend Utah State in the fall.

From the time she was little, she has always known she would be in this field whether tech or a veterinarian she knew this was what she wanted to do. Her favorite thing about working with animals is diagnostics! She loves drawing blood, she could do it all day if she had the chance! She knew she was in the right profession when she tried to work as a waitress on the side and realized how much she loved being a tech!

Kimberlee has two Persian cats named Owl and Clifford and one horse named Cobalt and they are her babies! In her spare time, she loves reading, writing music, singing, playing her guitar, riding her horse, or shopping. She loves her job and there is nothing else she would rather do. It is a privilege to get to come to work and meet everyone’s pets and be able to treat them.
