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, and the American Association of the Human-Animal Bond Veterinarians. At home, I live with my husband, Jamie. Our 20 year old triplets graduated high school in May 2017 and have since went their own ways. Tyler is earning his doctorate at Purdue University. Krista is playing volleyball and Lacrosse for Earlham College in Richmond, IN. Last but not least, Austin joined the military. We also have an array of pets at home- One Golden Retriever, Willow; one Red Heeler, Cooper; one Rat Terrier, Nicky; four house cats: Ducky, 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.
