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.

Lindsay Curran
Client Services Representative
Lindsay decided to become a member of the veterinary profession for one simple reason: she’s always adored animals of all shapes and sizes, and wanted to give something back to the pets who have given her so much. Here at 30th Street Animal Hospital, she’s able to do just that every day! Lindsay serves the area’s pets and animal owners as a Client Services Representative.

Lindsay is originally from Florida but grew up here in Indianapolis. She launched her animal-care journey at another local pet-care facility, where she would hone her skills for nearly five years, and earned her animal behavior degree from Indiana University during that time. Lindsay interned with Bloomington Animal Care and Control and also completed an internship with the Indianapolis Zoo, where she got to work with wild birds and penguins. In September of 2018, she was thrilled to become a member of the 30th Street Animal Hospital family—Lindsay has been helping the area’s pets and animal parents ever since!

Dr. Kelly Barnes
Owner, Veterinarian
Dr. Kelly Barnes has wanted to be a veterinarian ever since she was six years old. She always felt a kinship with the family pets, and wanted to do everything in her power to improve their lives. For her, there was never another option—Dr. Barnes has always known that she was destined to help others’ pets as a licensed veterinarian!

Dr. Barnes grew up in Washington, D.C. until the age of 13, when she and her family moved to Nebraska. After high school, she relocated to Iowa to study veterinary medicine at Iowa State University, earning both her undergraduate and Doctoral degrees there. Dr. Barnes became a member of the 30th Street Animal Hospital family in May of 2003, and has been helping the pets and animal parents of Indianapolis ever since.

Dr. Barnes and her husband, James, have a college-aged daughter and a pair of twins in high school. The family has six loveable pets: Rosie the Boston Terrier; a deaf Boxer/pit bull mix named LeBron James who regularly donates blood at the local emergency hospital; and four cats who go by Parnell, Pete, Mary, and Baby Kitty.
