Katherine has been working part-time as a veterinary assistant at Hollybank Animal Hospital since October 2016. When not at Hollybank, she is busy studying at Seneca college to become a veterinary technician or volunteering and recently interning at Toronto Wildlife Centre (TWC) in their wildlife care department. Katherine has been working in small animal vet clinics since she was 17 and during her zoology program at the University of Guelph, decided that her future career lies in wildlife rehabilitation. She dreams of maybe moving to British Columbia so she can enjoy a more outdoorsy lifestyle, which is her other great passion. Katherine loves being a part of the exceptional animal care team at Hollybank and hopes that the valuable teaching and mentorship she receives here will help her hone the skills and experience she will need to be successful in her future ambitions.
At home, Katherine cares for two ringneck doves, Maximus and Lucilla (Gladiator is a favourite movie of hers), and recently adopted a 12 year old Boston terrier, who she knows will be well cared for by the amazing doctors at Hollybank and Avonlea Animal Hospital. Katherine looks forward to meeting you and your pets as you come visit us!
