Kristi Hillebrand, CVT - Hospital Manager

For Kristi, veterinary medicine is truly a family affair..

She’s married to Dr. Matthew Hillebrand! Kristi has worked with animals for many years, and her extensive experience working with all types of pets—and people—continues to serve her well as the manager of Dreaming Summit Animal Hospital!

Raised in Arizona from a young age, Kristi attended Scottsdale Community College to study equine science, then worked at an Arabian horse ranch after graduating and traveled the country showing magnificent creatures. She’s also toured the state as a Parada Del Sol Rodeo Princess!

It was during Kristi’s time working closely with horses that she fell in love with the veterinary side of the animal care world. She attended Long Technical College for her Veterinary Assistant certification, becoming a CVT in 1994. Two years later, Kristi married Dr. Hillebrand, and the rest is history!

In her spare time, Kristi enjoys playing softball and racquetball, sewing, studying interior design and spending time with her family. She and Dr. Hillebrand have two grown sons and they’re about to become grandparents! The Hillebrands share their home with three dogs and a rabbit.
