My name is Kristen Thurmond. Originally from Nixa, Missouri, I came to the Kansas City metro area to attend college and fell in love with the city. I decided to make Kansas City my home.

Currently, I volunteer at Spay & Neuter Kansas City and have a passion for helping families keep their pets safe, healthy, and out of legal trouble. This drives my passion to help pet owners with any legal issues that come their way. During law school, I interned with the Kansas City Prosecutor’s Office in the Municipal Division and worked primarily with the animal dockets.
