Katie started working for VCA Columbia at Centre Park in May 2011 as a Client Service Representative. From there she grew her skill set and worked as a Veterinary Technician for several years, before accepting the Hospital Manager position in July of 2018.
Katie graduated from Gettysburg College and has always had a passion for animals. She currently resides in Sykesville with her husband, Chris, their two cats, Cosmo and Cuervo, and their dog, Jenga.
"I originally ventured into the veterinary field just because I wanted to be involved in animal care. I did not know what to really expect and hoped I would enjoy my job. Since animal care is an important part to my coworkers, the clients, and to me, we automatically make a connection and have a common goal; provide the best care possible to each pet. Although part of the day is consumed by daily duties, there is always time to interact with clients and their pets. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our clients and each pet always has an interesting story. It is even more rewarding when you can help a client and their pet through a difficult time by providing care and comfort."
