Patrick Kelleher is our operations manager and co-owner of the stables with his wife, Dr. Nicole Kelleher. Previous to his career managing an equine facility, Patrick owned/operated a microbrewery in Columbus, Ohio from 2010 to 2013. Moving to Indiana to follow Dr. Kelleher's veterinary career, he then opened a miniature wargaming store in Greensburg, Indiana in 2014. Moving again in 2016 to keep up with his wife, and get back to Ohio again, Patrick enjoyed being a stay-at-home dad until they decided to purchase the Carrollton Animal Hospital in 2017, which he helps manage to this day.
Outside of work he has 4 children; a 10-year-old named James, a 6-year-old named Sean, a 4-year-old named Eibhlin, and a 2-year-old toddler Ciara. They all live on a farm with 3 horses, a pony, a miniature donkey, 12 chickens, 10 guinea fowl, and 5 cats, and his hunting buddy, a springer spaniel named Sorscha. In what little spare time he has, Patrick enjoys hunting, gardening, board games, and good beer.
