Katie Whalen joins us from another AAHA-accredited hospital in Dayton, Ohio where she and her husband lived for six years. She worked as a veterinary assistant and eventually became the assistant manager of their 8 doctor practice. She is now joining us in 2020 as our hospital manager here at Plantation Animal Hospital.
Katie was born and raised in Reston, Virginia where she lived most of her life. She went to school at West Virginia University and received a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations, Communications, and Advertising. Soon after finishing college, she realized she wanted to focus her career on animals. She received her Veterinary Assistant Certificate and began her career at Twin Maples Veterinary Hospital. There, she combined her degree with her love for animals and people.
She and her husband, Drew, now live in Beaufort, South Carolina with their two boxers, Carter and Morgan. Her hobbies outside of work (and animals) include kayaking, fishing, reading, taking care of her indoor plants, and traveling.
