Kym Graham: Management
Kym grew up on the west coast of Florida in the small town of Punta Gorda. Her love of animals and the outdoors was obvious from a young age. Whenever she was asked what she wanted to be when she grew up she enthusiastically replied a veterinarian!
Redland Animal Hospital became a part of Kym's life when she was searching for a veterinarian that she could entrust with the care of her pets and knew from the first time that she met Dr. Bushnell that her animals were in great hands. She was offered a job in 2004 as a technician and was guided into a management position. Caring for the animals and educating their owners is where her passion remains.
When Kym is not working her main source of entertainment is her son, Bryland. In between all their outdoor activities they have fun with their three dogs, Mr. Nubbs, Shrek and Dixie, their cat Man Man. They also do what they can to help foster stray dogs and find them forever homes with the help from This Is The Dog, a local rescue group.
