Kate is originally from South Bend, IN. Upon moving to the Kalamazoo area, she made it her mission to fulfill her lifelong dream of working with animals. Kate's love for pets of all kinds (especially dogs!) lead her to join Kalamazoo Animal Hospital in May, 2019 as a receptionist and veterinary assistant. She has one dog of her own, a Pit Bull mix named Jax. In her free time, she enjoys attending music festivals and concerts, as well as hoop dancing.
Kate says, "My favorite thing about veterinary medicine is learning something new every day. Every day brings new opportunity, new faces, and new experiences. I'm forever grateful for having a job that pushes me to my limits and gives me a sense of purpose. I feel like my job matters and I'm making the lives of people and pets easier every day."
