In between college courses, to prepare her for a career in animal science and husbandry, you can find her reading, writing, horseback riding, and teaching her cat Baloo to hunt for goldfish. Ruth cannot be more thrilled to be learning and working at the best small and large animal veterinary practice in the state.



Glastonbury CT Vet StaffKireen started the new year with us in January 2016 as a surgical technician.  She has her BS degree from SCSU in liberal studies and began her career in the veterinary field September of 2009. With her avid thirst for knowledge and CE she quickly advanced from an assistant to technician and surgical nursing.

In her spare time you will find her snuggling with her cat Niko, hiking, painting, and/or out and about with friends. Kireen is ecstatic to advance her knowledge and experience into large animal/farm care with us at Beckett & Associates!
