Katie joined us in September, 2020. She was born and raised in Orange Park, Fl.

She graduated from USF in the Spring of 2019 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Integrative Animal Biology and minor in Public Health Infectious Disease Control. She recently moved back home and is taking classes through St. Petersburg College to become a CVT. Although this is the direction life has taken her now, she aspires to one day attend veterinary school and become a veterinarian.
One of Katie’s favorite things about working with animals is the everyday challenges and the opportunity that it provides to learn something new each and every day. Her passion for veterinary medicine has been around since she was a little girl, but it grew even more after her family’s dog Baxley was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. She wanted to have the opportunity to help animals like Baxley. This was the time that Katie’s family met Dr. Ferrin and she provided her the first true introduction into the field of veterinarian medicine by allowing her to shadow her and Dr. Stacey. Since then they have become wonderful mentors to Katie as she continues her journey into the world of veterinary medicine.
She knew she was in the right profession when she took some time in her last year in Tampa to volunteer at the Florida Aquarium and Home Sweet Home Animal Rescue of Tampa Bay. Katie’s experiences working with the people and animals at these organizations revealed to her that while she truly enjoyed seeing the husbandry side of things, veterinary medicine was where her true interests reside and is where she is meant to be.
In her free time Katie enjoys working and going on adventures with her rescued blue Pitbull, Koda. Due to his unknown past history he has been a welcome challenge to work with and has taught her so much about working with fearful dogs. She also loves the arts and nature. These have always been important aspects of her life. While attending the University of South Florida she was a member of the Tenor Saxophone section in the Herd of Thunder Marching Band. She is also a brother of Kappa Kappa Psi national honorary band service fraternity.
