Kami earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Baker University in 2001 with a double major in Biology and Chemistry. She then attended Kansas State University where she received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2006.

Kami and her husband have 3 wonderful kids and one goofy Great Dane mix named Izzy. She loves spending time outdoors and traveling with her family. In her spare time she enjoys reading, crafting, and volunteering to help out with her kids activities. As a Doctor, Kami is passionate about preventative care and continuing education, and she strives to provide an exceptional experience for our patients and their owners.

Lynde Murray-Wright, DVM

Lynde grew up on a farm near Emporia, Kansas, after returning to the United States from Papua New Guinea, where her parents had been missionaries. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Mid-America Nazarene College in Olathe, Kansas with a double major in Biology and Chemistry. After getting married, she moved to Lincoln, Nebraska. She worked in the laboratory of the area’s trauma hospital for almost ten years, when she felt the need for a change of direction due to getting a divorce. She started working at Belmont Veterinary Clinic and returned to college at University of Nebraska-Lincoln so she could apply to veterinary school. She was accepted to Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated with honors in 2004. She accepted an associate’s position at High Plains Animal Hospital in Borger, Texas and lived there for five years until the declining health of her parents made it necessary for her to move back to Kansas. She moved in with her mother following the death of her father and has been doing relief veterinary work in the Wichita area since 2010. She has four cats, the oldest of which is 20 years old. She enjoys quilting, working in her flower beds, and square dancing.
