Kristi Arndt returned to her family's business in August 2013 to serve as our Client Education Coordinator. She was a Biology major at Illinois Wesleyan University and then earned her DVM, EdM, and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. While she was there, Kristi helped develop and administer the Executive Veterinary Program which received the Merck-AgVet National Award for Creativity in Veterinary Medical Education. Because of her unique background and teaching experience, Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine then hired her as Faculty Development Coordinator for their innovative Problem-Based Learning curriculum. Kristi loves being a trailblazer and is excited about her new and evolving role at Lombard Veterinary Hospital. When Kristi isn’t at work, she enjoys solving Sudoku puzzles and actually likes doing them over and over until they are correct! She and Tela, her German Shepherd dog, are having fun with Schutzhund training.
