Meet the Kirk Veterinary Service Staff
Dr. Kelly Kirk
Hello! My name is Dr. Kelly Kirk. I grew up in Mitchell, Indiana. I attended Purdue University where I earned my BS in Biology in 1992 and a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 1995. I established Kirk Veterinary Service, Inc. in Orleans, Indiana in 1996. I am a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Indiana Veterinary Medical Association, the American Association of the Human-Animal Bond Veterinarians, a director of the Orleans Chamber of Commerce, President of the Mitchell Football Boosters, and Treasurer of the Mitchell Volleyball Boosters. At home, I live with my husband, Jamie. Our 19 year old triplets graduated high school in May 2017 and have since went their own ways. Tyler is earning his doctorate in Indianapolis. Krista is playing volleyball and Lacrosse for a college in Richmond, IN. Last but not least, Austin joined the military and is heading to Indianapolis this fall to start College. We also have an array of pets at home- Two English Bulldogs, Maddee and Mimzy; one Golden Retriever, Willow; one Red Heeler, Cooper; one Rat Terrier, Nicky; five house cats: Amber Kitty, Ducky, Fuzzy, Chance and Socks. Plus, we have a variety of farm animals. We just added ostriches to our farm. My family and I also own and operate Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt in Bedford, Indiana. I am an avid snowmobiler, and enjoy boating, hiking, flower gardening, and reading.
