Carynne Carter, Client Service Representative & Assistant


Carynne graduated from Harrison College in November 2017 and will soon be a registered technician (RVT)! She started her career in veterinary medicine several years ago at West Michigan St Vet prior to finding her home at Franklin Animal Clinic, where she has focused in the surgery department. Recently, she began to work with Dr. Stacey Shore and gets to split her time between Franklin and Indy Paws, which allows her a wide range of veterinary experience. She feels that becoming an RVT is her calling and she wouldn’t trade what she does for anything!

Carynne is a huge animal lover and has 2 fur babies of her own. Jace is her first, a 7 year old Doberman who thinks he is a human. Ava is her second baby who recently crossed over the Rainbow Bridge but will forever be in our hearts. Carynne has been married for about 2 years and they have a 1 year old son, John.
