Dr. Mike Marino


Dr. Mike was born and raised in Pennsylvania (GO EAGLES!).  He attended West Chester University, where he earned a bachelors degree in biology with a concentration in microbiology in 1997.  He then worked for several years in research, where he eventually met his wife, Carolyn. Dr. Mike felt God calling him in a different career path and in 2005 he was admitted into Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Mike and Carolyn married two months prior to school starting, and moved away from all of their friends and family.  It was worth it in the end.  Dr. Mike achieved his goal of becoming a veternarian in 2009, and is looking forward to a long career in veterinary medicine. Dr. Mike joined the Kind Care family in July of 2015. He and his wife have two daughters, Bethany and Tiffany, along with six furry children: 3 dogs (Tiger, Henry, and Bud) and 3 cats (Cinder, Hammy, and Maggie).
