Growing up, Katie’s family always knew she had a passion for animals. They would call her “Ellie Mae” and joke that you could find her rolling around in the mud with a dog. Shortly after turning sixteen, Katie was thrilled to start working at a local pet store. She believes it was then that she realized she wanted to take on a much more dedicated role in the lives of people and their pets. Once she received her Associates in General Education in 2011, she began working in emergency medicine. She gained a large amount of experience while employed there for approximately four years. When given the opportunity to work at Animal Tracks in the Summer of 2015, she couldn’t have been more thrilled. Being a former client of Dr. Parker’s, she knew she’d be joining an amazing staff and enjoyable atmosphere. Katie and her husband, Tim, share their home with one loveable pit bull and three cats.
