Kelli Ready, CVT
Talent Acquisition Partner
Chief Leadership Officer
Kelli has over 15 years of veterinary experience. As a young child, she always knew she wanted to work with animals which led her to a career as a certified veterinary technician. Kelli has had the opportunity to work in both general practice and ER/Specialty hospitals as a veterinary technician and a manager. As a veterinary manager, she developed a passion for interviewing and onboarding. This ultimately led her to a role in Talent Acquisition where she collaborates with hospital leaders to find top talent while also ensuring an amazing candidate experience. The most rewarding aspect for Kelli is helping others discover their dream careers and supporting hospitals with their hiring needs while still contributing to the health and wellness of pets.
Kelli lives in Minnesota with her husband, Nate, and their two senior (but still very playful) cats. As a lifelong Minnesotan, she has a love for the outdoors and enjoys spending summer days out on the lakes and sitting around bonfires at night. She has a passion for cooking and is always trying out new recipes for her family and friends. Kelli and her husband are avid sports fans (Skol Vikings!) and are always up for attending a football, baseball, or hockey game. She is thrilled to continue her career with Encore and can’t wait to see what this team can accomplish together!
