Hi! My name is Kelly Bromen and I was raised in Anderson Township since the age of three. I knew some day that whatever I did when I grew up was going to involve animals. At an early age I had raised hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs and rabbits. I also had several dogs and birds of my own.
When I was 15 I enrolled in the Animal Care program at Live Oaks Vocational School which taught me how to groom several different breeds of dogs and cats. I took this course for two years and it brought me to my first job at Petland. While I was mainly a salesperson, I also got to handle and take care of all the puppies and other pets in the store. I did health examinations with the Veterinarians, administered medications and vaccinated the puppies on a weekly schedule. I also became familiar with exotic birds, which I also came to love.
