T. C.

Kim Taylor

Veterinary Technician

Kim moved around quite a bit as a child, and her family’s Cocker Spaniel quickly became her best friend in the world. She cannot remember a time in her life when she wasn’t caring for pets! When the opportunity arose for her to enter the world of veterinary care, she didn’t hesitate. Now, Kim is proud to serve the pets and animal owners of Indianapolis as one of 30th Street Animal Hospital’s Veterinary Technicians.

Kim began her animal-care journey in DeLand, Florida, where she started working for a boarding kennel. She would remain there for the next seven years, developing a foundational knowledge of veterinary medicine that serves her well to this day. Next, Kim moved to North Carolina and signed on with a local clinic, learning even more from her boss and close confidant who had previously worked as a professor of veterinary medicine at Ohio State University.

After relocating to Indiana, Kim joined the 30th Street Animal Hospital family in January of 2006. She’s been serving the pets and animal parents of the area ever since—Kim especially enjoys performing dental procedures and forming lasting bonds with her patients and their owners. She’s also an avid pet foster parent, and is proud to have successfully raised, fostered, and re-homed hundreds of kittens over the years!

Kim and her husband have six children between them, as well as multiple grandchildren. They share their home with one cat, Romeo, as well as three dogs. When she isn’t spending time with her family and pets or tending to the area’s animal companions here at the clinic, Kim can be found relaxing with a good book or tending to her garden.

Jeri worked as a nurse in the human healthcare field for nearly 20 years. When her dog came down with a serious illness, it was Jeri who provided daily care. The experience made a permanent impression—Jeri soon realized that she would like to combine her background in medicine with her lifelong passion for pets!

Jeri attended Indiana Bible College to earn her degree in veterinary technology, passing her national exams shortly afterward to become a Registered Veterinary Technician. After a stint working in emergency medicine, she joined the 30th Street Animal Hospital family in June of 2017—Jeri especially likes to help out with surgeries and perform thorough dental cleanings, and her favorite part of the job is chatting directly with the area’s pet owners on a daily basis.

Away from work, Jeri can be found working in her yard or completing home-improvement projects with her husband. Jeri has three adult sons and a grandson—as well as four stepchildren and nine step-grandchildren!—and the furry side of her family includes four dogs: a Labrador mix named Shyla and three pugs who go by Whoopi, Tazz, and Willa.
