Elena Keeny

Elena Keeny

Veterinary Assistant

Elena has always wanted to know more about the care of her own pets. When she brought her cat—who is decidedly uncooperative at the vet’s office—to an animal clinic for care, she was struck by the patience and compassion shown by the staff. Right away, Elena knew that she’d like to do the same thing! Now, she helps pets daily as a Veterinary Assistant with the Village Gate Animal Hospital team.

Elena was born here in Columbus but grew up in Dayton. She’s currently enrolled in Columbus State Community College’s veterinary technology program, and is thrilled to gain hands-on experience during her studies by tending to pets here at the hospital. Elena especially likes blood work, and loves learning about the various tests that are able to be performed in-house.

Between her busy work and school schedules, Elena still finds time to pursue her other passion: dance. She’s been a professional ballet dancer for nearly 12 years and continues to perform throughout the year—she’s graced audiences in New York, Atlanta, Charleston, and Montreal! Elena and her fiancé live with a Boston Terrier puppy, Pretzel, who is working on learning her commands; a feisty cat named Ethel; and a rescued cat named Pearl who is becoming fast friends with the dog.

Kourtney Sprague

Kourtney Sprague

Veterinary Assistant

Kourtney visited her grandparents’ farm frequently as a child, where she spent hours with the pigs and cows; her early experiences sparked a love for animals that hasn’t let up since. For her, working to better the lives of pets as a veterinary professional simply makes sense!

Kourtney is a Dayton native and is currently finishing her degree at Ohio State University—she’s also completing her internship for her undergraduate studies right here at Village Gate Animal Hospital. She couldn’t be happier to launch her animal-care journey here at the clinic, where she serves the area’s pets and animal owners as a Veterinary Assistant. Kourtney particularly enjoys puppy check-ups and getting to watch young dogs grow and mature with each office visit.

Away from work, Kourtney enjoys staying active, traveling, and doting on her own pets at home. She has a sassy cat named Moe and a dog, Darby, who loves attention and treats.
