Our Staff


Dr. Libby Kinsel

Dr. Elizabeth Kinsel is from the Canal Winchester, OH area.  Most of her clients know her as Dr. Libby.  She grew up in an animal loving family and was always eager to accompany her family pets to the veterinary office.  For as long as she can remember, she always wanted to be a veterinarian and walk in the footsteps of her mentor, Dr. William Haynes. 

Dr. Libby graduated from Canal Winchester High School.  She completed her undergrad studies at Miami University in Ohio.  She graduated from The Ohio State University in 2003 with her degree in veterinary medicine.  She has been the owner of Creature Comforts Veterinary Center since 2004.

Dr. Kinsel believes that the commonsense approach to veterinary medicine that she observed from Dr. Haynes and his staff has made her the kind of veterinarian that she is today.  She is passionate about keeping the “whole patient” happy and healthy, which includes the patient’s family. 

Dr. Libby considers her veterinary family her extended family.  She values the relationships that she has built over the years.  In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends.   She wants to follow the activities of her nieces and nephews as they grow.  Dr. Libby also loves going to concerts with her cousin, Kate and her friend, Erin.   She has a true love for shelter animals.  Dr. Libby volunteers at the local shelters to improve the health and quality of life for the community’s dogs and cats.  She also hopes to get back to horseback riding.


Dr. Tiffany Elgersma

Dr. Tiffany Elgersma grew up in the Bremen, Ohio area.  She graduated from Fairfield Union High School. Dr. Tiffany completed her undergrad studies at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio.  During her undergrad studies she was torn between taking music or pre-med as her major.  As she attended school, she worked as a veterinary assistant right here at Creature Comforts Veterinary Center.  She also volunteered at the Ohio Wildlife Center.  From those two experiences, she chose veterinary medicine, and we are glad she did.  Dr. Tiffany graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in May 2017.

Her passions in veterinary medicine include nutrition, behavior modification, dentistry, and endocrine disorders.  When she is not at the clinic working, Dr. Tiffany likes to do CrossFit Training and spending time with family and friends.  She is an outdoors enthusiast and loves to go fishing and hiking. Her love of music remains strong.  She continues to play jazz trumpet and can frequently be heard singing throughout the clinic.  She has participated in Pelotonia to raise money for cancer research.  She plans to complete a 100-mile ride in 2018. 

At home she is ”Mom” to Coco, a bullterrier mix, who is her shadow.  She also has 2 cats, Charlie and Luigi, who rule the roost.

Simba was a stray kitten at a local McDonald’s.  Dr. Kinsel captured Simba and all of his siblings.  Everyone was adopted except for Simba.  That is how he became our office cat.  Simba has come a long way with his social skills.  At first he was very timid, but he is much better now.  Simba likes to help out in the office when he feels like it.  But most of the time he likes to look out the windows and hang out in the pharmacy.
