Meet Jeannette M. Kelly, DVM

Diplomate, ACVIM (Oncology)

Dr. Jeannette Kelly created Veterinary Cancer Care, P.C., in 2004 due to demand for a veterinary cancer treatment center in New Mexico. Dr. Kelly is dedicated to kind and gentle treatment options focusing on quality of life, and the advancement of oncology through multi-institutional clinical trials.

Meet Megan Paget, Senior Oncology Nurse

Megan’s life has been filled with animals since an early age. As a Santa Fe native,  she lived both in town and on a family ranch and was involved with 4-H and numerous school activities. Megan earned her BS in Animal Science from New Mexico State University and has been a veterinary assistant for more than 16 years, working with both large and small animals. She is currently attending San Juan Community College to obtain her veterinary technician license. Megan is Veterinary Cancer Care’s “Institutional Memory,” having been with Dr. Kelly for more than 8 years, and has worked in many capacities while here. She has become Dr. Kelly’s “right hand” and senior staff member, finally settling into the role of senior oncology nurse. Megan currently lives in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, with her husband Keegan, sons Declan and Conor, and their dog and cat.

Meet Brian Sturgeon, Oncology Nurse

Brian has had a long-time passion for animals. From a young age, he planned to become a veterinarian. He realized his passion was more about nurturing and caring for animals than actually being a vet, so he attended the veterinary technology school at San Juan College. Brian has worked with large and small mammals and exotics in a variety of settings, including general practice, urgent and critical care, surgery, internal medicine, and oncology specialties. Brian is an Oncology Nurse and Compliance Officer at Veterinary Cancer Care. Working closely with Dr. Kelly on clinical trials, Brian manages inventory, maintains certifications with OSHA and AAHA, and represents VCC in the community, where he helps educate about cancer prevention and treatment options. Outside of work, Brian enjoys power lifting with his husband Sammy, acting/performing, and spending time with loved ones including his pit bull, Karma.
