Katie Birch (Vet Assistant)
Katie started working at this clinic at the end of June 2015, and it's been like something out of a dream. When she was little, she dreamed of being a veterinarian like many little girls do, only she actually stuck to that dream throughout most of her school life. In about the middle of her high school career, which she tailored for the purpose of going to vet school, she realized that what she really wanted was to be a veterinary assistant instead. Finally she's living that dream, and loving every minute of it. Animals have always been a big part of Katie's life, she can't remember a time growing up when she didn't have some kind of furry friend. Her cat Duchess was with her for the best fifteen years of her life, before passing away at home, and will forever be Katie's baby girl. Katie loves both cats and dogs, though there's no question cats are her preferred species. Her dream for the future is to be living independently with a roommate and at least two cats.
