Mississippi Veterinary Services’ veteran technician, Kathy has been on the team since March of 1986 when she started as a student receptionist/tech only to return in May 1988 as a graduated Animal Health Technician. While away at school she gained valuable experience at an emergency veterinary clinic in Toronto while studying in the Animal Health Technician (AHT) program at Seneca College. Over the years Kathy has served on the board of the Ottawa Chapter of the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians (OAVT) and the Central Canada Veterinary Association (CCVA) as the Tech Representative. Kathy particularly enjoys the ‘repro’ type work with her job and the laboratory work that we can offer in our in-clinic lab. Kathy and her family share their home with “Elmo” the cat and “Dare” the Jack Russell Terrier. When not at work Kathy devotes her time to working at building the herd of Registered Angus and commercial cattle. Some of her favourite activities include showing cattle, volunteering as the 4-H Beef leader in the local 4-H Club, reading, cooking, crocheting and spending time with her husband and 2 kids.
