Karyn Collier, DVM
Chief of Staff
Dr. Collier is Chief of Staff of Saint Francis Veterinary Center. She is a veterinarian in the Department of Emergency and Critical Care, the Wellness Clinic as well as the Marshall Center for the Treatment of Feline Hyperthyroidism.
Dr. Collier has led Saint Francis to become the industry’s only three-time Finalist for AAHA Accredited Practice of the Year, North America (2012, 2014 and 2019), winning top honors in 2019. Under her leadership, Saint Francis also earned VECCS certification as a Level II VECCS facility (Veterinary Emergency & Critical Care Society) in 2015, the first VECCS-certified practice in the State of New Jersey.
Dr. Collier earned her DVM at Cornell University in 1993 and her BS in Biology from Tougaloo College in 1988. She completed her Certificate in Executive Leadership from Cornell University Online in 2018.
Dr. Collier knew at the age of 8 that she wanted to be a veterinarian, when her dog was saved by a doctor in Mississippi following a car accident. One of her favorite parts of working as a veterinarian is the opportunity to develop relationships with clients and work with them to keep their pets healthy. She shares her home with four dogs, Coogan, Stitch, Demon and Munny, all rescues from local shelters.
Dr. Collier has a particular interest in reproductive medicine.
Outside of work, she’s a self-proclaimed ‘Super Soccer Mom!’ as the mother of three wonderful children. She has run half-marathons and can’t get enough of her home-town Philadelphia Phillies baseball team.
