Kelly Stewart

Kelly has worked in veterinary pathology laboratories since 2014, kicking things off in haematology but later branching out into multiple departments including serology and molecular diagnostics. In her personal time, she is into comics, cosplay, cartoons, and film and geek culture in general, which is reflected in her large collection of books, comics, games, action figures and other merchandise.
