Dr. Lynn Grinstead

Owner, Veterinarian

Growing up with allergies and asthma, Dr. Lynn Grinstead wasn’t supposed to spend a lot of time with animals. However, this didn’t put a damper on her interest and love for them! A few career-choice changes and 11 years of post-high school education later, Dr. Grinstead became what she’d always been meant to be: a veterinarian.

Dr. Grinstead grew up in Pickerington. She first attended the Florida Institute of Technology to study marine biology before entering The Ohio State University’s Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology Doctorate program. During her last year of doctorate studies, she applied to OSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine, starting in 1998. That same year, she began working as a Veterinary Assistant here at Winchester Veterinary Clinic.

Medically, Dr. Grinstead enjoys internal medicine cases and using physical exams, blood work, x-rays, and ultrasound to put the pieces of the puzzle together. She also loves surgeries and the instant gratification they can bring. She also appreciates the long-lasting bonds that she forms with her clients and their furry family members.

Dr. Grinstead has been married to her husband George since 1993. They have a daughter, Sydney, and a son named Constantine. As you might imagine, their home is full of animals. They have four dogs, a pit bull, a beagle, a terrier mix, and a chihuahua, two chickens, and a green-winged macaw!

In her time away from the clinic, Dr. Grinstead enjoys spending time with family and friends and watching her children’s sporting activities.

Dr. Kelsi Carlson, DVM

Dr. Kelsi Carlson, DVM

Associate Veterinarian

The human-animal bond has been one of the most important connections in Dr. Kelsi Carlson’s life. In fact, the bond was so important that it helped influence her career path to be surrounded by animals. As an associate veterinarian at Winchester Veterinary Clinic, she gets to live out her dream every morning she walks through the door!

A native of Pickerington, OH, Dr. Kelsi’s journey in veterinary medicine began when she was in high school after she began working at a local doggie daycare and as a kennel assistant. These positions gave her a chance to learn more about animal behavior and how to react with different animals in different situations. After earning her Bachelor of Science degree from Otterbein University, Dr. Kelsi would go on to receive her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ohio State University.

When it comes to her favorite aspects of being at Winchester Veterinary Clinic, Dr. Kelsi loves supporting the unbreakable human/animal bond. She wants nothing more than for her patients to feel loved and to live long, happy lives so that the bond with their owners can continue.

Dr. Kelsi and her husband have 3 dogs, Swiffer, Dyson and Cruiser. She loves being outdoors, so her hobbies include kayaking and hiking. In fact, she and husband have made it a goal to visit all of Ohio’s state parks!
