Kate is one of our Registered Veterinary Technologist at Elk Lake Veterinary Hospital. Kate was raised on a farm in the Fraser Valley surrounded by animals her entire life. Whether it was horses, dogs, cats, frogs, chickens or whatever animal may have crossed her path that day, Kate was an animal lover. It only made sense that she would spend her adult life working with them during the day and catering to them at nighttime (Kate has a very outgoing cat named Boomer and an energetic Australian Kelpie mix named Maggie). After graduating from the Animal Health Technology program at Thompson Rivers University in 2012, she worked in small and mixed animal practices on the Sunshine Coast and in Campbell River before joining the Elk Lake Veterinary Hospital in October 2015. When not at work, Kate can generally be found somewhere outside, usually with a four legged friend following close behind.
