Mary Jo and her husband, Dr. Tom Bloom, moved to River Falls, Wisconsin 28 years ago and started a mixed animal practice on their property outside River Falls. They built the existing building 15 years ago and named it Kinnic Veterinary Service, where Dr. Bloom practiced small animal medicine exclusively. When Dr. Bloom passed away, Mary Jo continued to serve as the business manager at KVS. Mary Jo and her family still live on their hobby farm in River Falls, where they enjoy their many cats, a Morgan mare, and a Boston Terrier named Stella Luna. In her spare time she enjoys gardening, outdoor activities and traveling.
