Catherine – RVT

Cat was born in SF and raised in Marin County. After graduating from Oregon State University with a BS degree in Theater Arts, Cat took a brief break and then redirected her career path into Veterinary Medicine. Her first job was at Bel Marin Animal Hospital as the kennel technician before quickly realizing she wanted to grow more. Cat was accepted into the AVMA accredited program at Portland Community College for Veterinary Technicians, from where she graduated with her AAS in Veterinary Technology, and achieved her certification as a Vet Tech in Oregon, and more recently as a Registered Vet Tech in California. Cat has practiced in General Medicine as well as Specialty Surgery and Oncology.

Cat recently moved back to the Bay Area to be closer to family. She currently lives with her father and three "furbaby" felines, Duncan, Isabella and Daphne. When not at work you can find Cat either curled up with a good book and mug of tea, cheering on her SF Giants, getting dirty tending her rose garden, sleeping or torturing her "furbabies" by dressing them up in cute costumes.
