Dr. Kelsey Braaten

Surgical Intern

Kelsey Braaten, DVM

Dr. Kelsey Braaten is an intern with the surgery specialty department at Pieper Veterinary. Originally from Connecticut, she graduated from Purdue University in 2014 and earned her doctorate from the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2019. She enjoys the puzzle-solving aspect of specialty surgeries, and how often fixing the found problem helps the patient feel so much better and happier than when they first came in.

Dr. Braaten lives with her dog Inara, a 4-year old "coconut retriever" rescued from St. Kitts and Nevis. When not at work, she enjoys watching movies, going hiking, and horseback riding.
