Meet our staff

Ksenija Praper was born in 1965 in Slovenj Gradec. She finished her primary school in Dravograd and general upper secondary school in Ravne na Koroškem. Her love for horses led her to study veterinary medicine. In 1991, she graduated from the Veterinary Faculty in Ljubljana. In her last two years of studies, she worked as a veterinary technician at the Clinic for Surgery and Small Animals in Ljubljana. After her graduation, she also completed her internship there.

For a while after her internship, Ksenija also worked as a part-time veterinarian at the clinic for small animals of the Veterinary Station Ljubljana. Between 1997 and 2005, she ran her own veterinary clinic in Sežana. Throughout this period, her work focused on small animals. In 2005, she joined her colleagues at the Veterinary Clinic Koper to facilitate her work organization, family life and care of children. She is still an employee there, focusing on internal medicine, laboratory diagnostics and soft tissue surgery.

In her work in traditional veterinary medicine, Ksenija has taken part in additional education and training in this area, applying the acquired knowledge successfully in her everyday work.

However, as she kept searching for new challenges and wished to extend her knowledge to some unconventional branches of working with animals, she decided to study animal chiropractic in the United States in 2013. In September 2013, she graduated from the Options for Animals College of Animal Chiropractic in Kansas and has successfully practiced animal chiropractic care for both large and small animals.

Options for Animals College of Animal Chiropractic is one of the four schools of this kind in the world. Its programme as well as all additional chiropractic training is supervised by the AVCA (American Veterinary Chiropractic Association) and IVCA (International Veterinary Chiropractic Association).
