Konnichiwa! My name is Katelyn! I’m a Wisconsin girl with a huge heart for anything and everything pertaining to animals, Disney or nerdy things. I started my journey in the veterinary field in 2012 and have never had to “work” a day in my life since! Besides caring for the animals and their pet parents here at Animal Wellness Center of Oak Creek, I also extend my love to The Lake Shore Veterinary Specialty and ER hospital as an Emergency Relief Technician. My central interests in the veterinary field would be westernized and holistic remedies and therapy!
Beyond my role as a technician, I’m also a recent proud graduate of Criminal Law from UW- Parkside. People always look at me puzzled when I tell them what I went to school for and what my current career is. However, I have BIG dreams and ambitions to put these two passions into one giant ball of awesomeness. Animal Law, advocacy, and welfare are among the few platforms that I strive to one day take on and hopefully change the way the world views animals as a whole.
When not wearing scrubs, I spend my time at my second home, The Racine Theater Guild, or reenacting the Elizabethan period in the Queen’s Court at The Bristol Renaissance Faire. I’m also a new member of the Princess Cabaret! I take pride in continuing my love for cheerleading by coaching the St. Catherine’s Varsity Squad. Of course, none of these things bring me the same joy as my fur babies. I have two rambunctious Pomeranians, Ruby and Vixey, as well as my Sassy cat Nonnie Jean the Bean Queen. I know how much my pets mean to me and would love to extend my love and affection to your pets as well!
