Kayris has been a veterinary technician since 1997 and joined the team at Boston Street Animal Hospital in 2011. She has worked at both large and small practices and also spent two and a half years doing research on aging at NIH. She is especially interested in the role of good nutrition in maintaining healthy pets. As a long time resident of Canton, Kayris is excited to be working in the community. She lives with her husband, two kids and two extraordinarily unruly tabby cats named Ollie and Jameson. When she‘s not working, doing laundry, packing lunches or supervising homework, she enjoys running, cooking, gardening, and reading.
