Khris Keller DVM

Dr. Keller

Dr. Keller decided that he wanted to become a veterinarian after writing a career report on veterinary medicine in the 6th grade. He later attended Kansas State University, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. He received endoscopy training and certification from Colorado State University, where he acquired experience in using both rigid and flexible endoscopes for endoscopic procedures. Dr. Keller’s favorite part about working at the Animal Emergency Center of Tulsa is working with its well-trained, professional staff, and having the opportunity to utilize his training in endoscopy.

Dr. Keller shares a home with his wife, Linda. A couple of his favorite travel destinations include the San Juan River in New Mexico, and the Dream Stream in Lake George, Colorado. When he’s not helping animals, he enjoys fly fishing, training Labrador Retrievers, and ballroom dancing.

Dr. Tinnin

Dr. Tinnin

Dr. Tinnin received his DVM from Oklahoma State University in 2021. He always had pets when he was a kid and had a special interest in science and medicine. Veterinary medicine, which combines his love of the sciences and medicine with his love of animals, seemed like the natural career path. Being able to improve and save lives is the most rewarding aspect of his role as a veterinarian. He shares his home with a DSH cat named Blake and a Western Hognose snake named Jormungandr. When he isn’t donning his white coat, Dr. Tinnin can be found kayaking, hiking, camping, reading, and working on puzzles. Between the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, he can’t decide which is the better franchise.

Dr. Clupper

Dr. Clupper obtained her DVM from Oklahoma State University in 2020. She has had a compassion for and an interest in animals from a young age, caring about the welfare of everything from turtles to ants. As a veterinarian, she firmly believes the work she does is so much more than “work,” and is blessed to be a part of our amazing veterinary team. She was voted "Tulsa World's Best of the Best and People of the Year Awards: Best Veterinarian." So far, being entrusted with the lives of her patients and watching their astounding recoveries has been the most rewarding part of her career at AEC of Tulsa. Saving lives, sharing her passion with her colleagues, and supporting her clients through the ups and downs of pet ownership is a great accomplishment that she gets to experience every day.

Dr. Clupper’s family includes her fiancé, Tyler, her stepson, Joey, and their 3 Pittie mixes named Trooper, Copper, and Fish. Along with bully breeds, Dr. Clupper also loves Taylor Swift, Christmas, heated blankets, and Asian food–in that order.
