Katie P, Veterinary Assistant and Standard Poodle

Katie P., Veterinary Assistant

Katie’s passions in life have always been animals, nature, and family. She grew up in the South bay area with her mom and two older sisters, moving to Davis in adulthood to receive her B.S. in Animal Science at UC Davis. Pursuing her love of animals, at 18 she began volunteering at a cat rescue in the East Bay, which quickly transitioned to a veterinary technician job at the hospital the kitties were seen at – cementing her interest in animal medicine. When not helping all of our adorable animals, Katie spends her time hiking, playing with her doggy Faron and kitty Loki, and enjoying the local restaurants around Davis.
