Katie W., CVT is a Technician in our Surgery department. She attended Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, PA where she obtained a Bachelors of Science in Equine Science and Management. Katie also holds an Associate’s in Veterinary Technology from Camden County College, New Jersey.
During a veterinary internship Katie realized she enjoyed in-depth and emergency cases because of the critical thinking skills they required. She sought out a facility where she could be part of a team performing such cases. Katie moved to Northeastern PA and joined the VREC family shortly after graduation in 2016.
As a Surgery Technician, Katie assists the surgeon during procedures, provides patient care, and loves to see animals who were sick or injured be reunited with their owners – “it makes it all worth it”. When Katie isn’t assisting animals at VREC, she spends time with her own pets: cat Luke, Pitbull mix Penny, four goats, and 12 chickens. She loves reading, four-wheeling, and working on her hobby farm.
