Doctors and Admin
While every member of our team is essential in providing the proper care your pet deserves, our doctors are the heart of our hospital and service. In addition, our commitment to your satisfaction and customer service has led us to hire a manager specifically to oversee your customer service needs!
Dr. Kristen Andrews
(formerly Dr. Kristen Nelson)
Welcome! I am Dr. Kristen Andrews, the primary veterinarian and owner of Stockton Hill Animal Hospital. I am originally from Iowa but moved to Kingman after graduating from the College of Veterinarian Medicine at Iowa State University in 1995. Some may know me as Dr. Nelson- I married March of 2010 and so am now Dr. Andrews!
I share my home with my husband Art, my pug ‘Chubbs’, and my cockatiel ‘JB’. In my free time I enjoy working out, snowboarding, hiking and just enjoying the beautiful Arizona outdoors! My husband and I are huge fans of Star Wars and have quite a collection of props and costumes from the movie as well as other movies. Like many others, I wanted to be a veterinarian when I was little. Unfortunately, I had a weak stomach and had decided that I simply could not do it. However, I had such a strong desire to spend my life helping animals that I forced myself to overcome my fears and pursue a career in veterinary medicine. It was one of the best decisions I ever made and I have greatly enjoyed this profession for the past 16 years. I look forward to another 16 years taking care of pets and their owners at Stockton Hill Animal Hospital.
