Katy with dogs Riley (left) and Sweet Pea (right)

Katy started working on the veterinary nursing team at Animal Care Clinic in June 2010.  She came to San Luis Obispo from Bakersfield and graduated Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in December 2010 with a degree in Animal Science.  She will be attending veterinary school in Scotland beginning fall of 2013.

We will be sad to lose Katy this summer when she journeys across the pond, but are excited to hear about her new adventures to come!  She is preparing for her move to Glasgow, Scotland and making arrangements to bring her dog, Sweet Pea along as well.  Katy-on-the-jobShe said, “I’m having fun checking out my new place to live on Google Earth.  It’s been interesting, nerve-racking, and exciting looking at current weather in Glasgow compared to San Luis Obispo!”  One of her reasons for applying to this particular vet school and making the plunge to move is she has lots of family that live not too far from her new residence.  She looks forward to spending more time with them, although looks like vet school will be keeping her pretty darn busy for the next several years!

Katy also enjoys being active with her dogs Sweet Pea and Riley, whether running the trails or mountain biking.  Other pets at home include 2 cats, Charlie and Spooky, and a ball python named Leo.  Katy loves San Luis Obispo and the year round activities this area has to offer.  She is also an avid competitor in adventurous races like the Reno-Tahoe Odyssey and Tough Mudder!
