Kristal Beall, DVM

Staff Veterinarian

Emergency & Critical Care

I was born in Silver Spring, Maryland and grew up in nearby Frederick.  I moved back to Montgomery County at the age of 11 and have considered it home ever since.  My interests include horseback riding, skiing, hiking, watching sports (Go Skins!) and exploring D.C.

Why do you work at Friendship?

Friendship has been home ever since my veterinary career began as a veterinary technician when I was in college. This was my first exposure to emergency medicine and the wide variety of specialty services Friendship has to offer. Friendship has a great team of people working together to help the animals in DC, and I am excited to continue be a part of that team!
