Our Team

Dr. Krista Gibson, DVM

1383081789For those of you to whom I am new, here's a little of my story. I grew up in this area of Scottsdale and left many years ago to pursue a career as a veterinarian. My life took me all over the country, and now I've come full circle back to Scottsdale. Along the way I've made some wonderful friends, both human and animal, and I sincerely hope to make many, many more with all of you.

Since graduating from the University of Wisconsin - Madison Veterinary School in 1996, my almost 20 years of practice have flown by, and I still love what I do. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me or simply stop by the office and introduce yourself. I appreciate your trust and continued support of Animal Medical Services, and I'm looking forward to caring for your pets now and into the future.

My practice philosophy is one of individual attention and personal service. I am here for YOU and your pet's health. Animal Medical Services is a solo practice with one veterinarian. Here you will always see the same veterinarian, we know you and your pet's names, and you will never be put off if you need to be seen, even if it's 5 minutes to closing time. We are not corporately owned or operated, and we are not part of a large conglomerate where procedures and policies are dictated from above. Your pet's needs are not the same as every other pet's needs, and we understand that.

If you are looking for a personal veterinarian that will care for your pet as an individual, then Animal Medical Services is the place for you!

Ricky Winch - Technician

A true local, I was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ, With 9 years of experience in the veterinary field, I have always had a love for animals and medicine. In addition, I am also in Real Estate, which has always been a lifelong passion. In my spare time, I like to hike, camp and be around family and friends, as well as being an avid member of Habitat for Humanity and The Human Rights Campaign. Three dogs keep me company at home; a Pit Bull named "Abby,' a Brussels Griffon named "Brody" and a Maltese/Poodle mix named "Buddy.". I look forward to meeting all of you and all of your furry friends!

Kendall Penrod - Front Desk/Veterinary Assistant

HI! So, a little about me: I was born and raised in northern Arizona, and moved to the valley in 2011 I grew up with animals, big and small, and now I have a German Shepherd mix named Kimba. I like playing guitar, watching movies, and being with friends and family. I have the great opportunity to do something I love, as well as meet some new friends along the way (four-legged friends included!).
