Kiley graduated from University Of South Carolina with a B.S. in Marine Science in 2004.

Kiley is our part time Veterinary Technician. She has been with The Downtown Animal Hospital since it opened in 2007.  She and Dr. Garrity have worked together for ten years in total. Currently, Kiley has seven animals, five cats ( Flick,  Alice, Hilary, Midge, and Guido) and two dogs (Jaycee and Daisy) and all of them are Kiley’s perfect little angels (except for when they’re not). All of them were rescues, usually fosters or special needs cats that she couldn’t bare to adopt out. Kiley has always been crazy about animals and the number of them she has just proves it.   Recently, Kiley and her husband added a two legged member to the family, her daughter Molly. When not taking care of all her animals and Molly, Kiley likes to travel, and take hikes in Kentucky’s beautiful parks.
