Kelsey – Client Service Representative
Kelsey, a small town girl who grew up in New Brunswick, made a big life change last March by moving to Edmonton to be with her boyfriend Jordan.
She first began doing Gel Nails with her own set of claws but as time went by realized it wasn’t what she wanted to do anymore.
She found her true calling at Oxford Animal Hospital. She has 5 cats of her own in NB but unfortunately is not allowed to have animals in her rental, but she gets her furry fix of love at work.
