A little bit about her:
She earned her DVM at Washington State University and completed a surgery residency at North Carolina State University
Dr. Krebs began her veterinary career as an Animal Care Specialist in the Army. She served 23 years on active duty in diverse positions such as Deputy Director and Veterinary Surgeon at Veterinary Medical Center Europe in Germany, and the dual-hatted Chief of Clinical Operations and Clinical Medicine Specialist/Surgeon in a deployable unit—the 248th Medical Detachment (Veterinary Service Support) at Ft Bragg, NC
During her service, Dr. Krebs cared for hundreds of military working dogs and thousands of pets owned by service members and retirees
She mentored, trained, and developed more than 100 new veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and food inspection specialists, striving to have a positive impact on the lives of those around her
Imagine life in Nevada:
Pack up your hiking shoes and your ski poles because the Reno area is full of year-round outdoor adventure! Aside from the obvious fun at the nearby Lake Tahoe, our community has countless opportunities for outdoor recreation like skiing, hiking, kayaking, dirt bike riding, fishing, and more! Reno is also speckled with arts and entertainment! Multiple casinos, the National Automobile Museum, the Nevada Museum of Art, the Truckee River District, and the National Bowling Stadium are some fan favorites.
Relocating from California?
If affordable, new housing in an up-and-coming area sounds too good to be true, look no further! Reno is close enough to the Bay Area for a weekend getaway, yet far enough away to escape the high cost of living! Here, the average home costs around $550,000, plus, you'll have more space between you and your neighbors, considerably lower utility costs, and access to a growing community that is attracting new infrastructure rapidly. And we can't forget--no state income tax!
There are endless possibilities right at your fingertips. Why not make life in Reno and a career with Fairgrounds Animal Hospital one of them?
