Our Staff


travisTravis Kingsley, DVM

I grew up on a farm outside of Houston, MN. Through the years we had dairy cows, beef cattle, pigs and always horses. I knew eventually I would go to veterinary school, but after high school I joined the Army and served in Germany for a few years. When I came back to Minnesota I attended Winona State University and then the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. When we graduated, Naaren and I moved back to this area and I started working for Caledonia Veterinary Clinic. I have never thought of working anywhere else so buying the practice was an easy decision for us. I love this area, the community and my clients. While I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine, I especially enjoy herd health, ultrasound and reproduction.

I was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma but moved to New york when I was 11 years old. Growing up, I always new I wanted to be a veterinarian and never considered any other career path. I graduated from Colgate University and then attended the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. I met Travis in veterinary school and we were married at the beginning of our senior year. After school, Travis got a job at Caledonia Veterinary Clinic and I worked in Winona at Pet Medical center for 5 years and then in Sparta, WI at Morganside Veterinary Clinic for 4 years. It did not take long for us to realize that this was where we wanted to stay so when the opportunity came to purchase Caledonia Veterinary Clinic, we jumped at the chance! I have really enjoyed working and living in this community. I work exclusively with small animals and especially enjoy internal medicine and soft tissue surgery. Travis and I live on a small hobby farm with our 3 children, Noah, Priya and Avery. We raise chickens and goats and also have 1 dog (Lynx), 2 cats (Spice and Gordy) and 2 guinea pigs (Charlie Brown and Toad).

I grew up on a small dairy farm in NE Iowa and attended Wartburg College in Waverly, IA. I then pursued my DVM at Iowa State University where I graduated in 2009.

I’m a people person and love animals so this is a great way to have both. I enjoy this job so much because of the variety; you never know what is going to happen from one day to the next.

maryMary Jetson – Receptionist

Hello, my name is Mary Jetson and I started working at the Caledonia Vet Clinic on June 30, 2014. I live in Spring Grove with my husband Mike and our cat MacKenzie. We operate a dairy farm that has been in the Jetson family for 157 years. I raise the calves, do the bookwork and help out on the farm as needed. We milk black and white Holsteins, but recently I decided we needed a little color in the barn, so I added Adel, a red and white Holstein. She is easy to find in the herd and by far the prettiest! My son Mike and his wife Sarah live in Lakeville, MN. This past June, we became proud grandparents of Ethan. I have lived in Spring Grove for 10 years, prior to that I lived in Hastings, MN and worked many years at Land O’Lakes. Throughout my career I have been involved in many aspects of customer service. I really enjoy working at Caledonia Vet Clinic; the staff is so knowledgeable and friendly. I look forward to seeing you the next time you stop by!
