Katrina was born in San Luis Obispo and raised in Los Osos. While growing up she wasn’t able to have any cats or dogs due to a parental allergy but she did have a bird, a rat and a bunny. She has worked in human medicine for 22 years but always had a love for animals. After working in an emergency pet hospital she knew her true passion was with veterinary medicine. That’s when Katrina joined the PBVC team! Originally working as one of our customer service representatives, Katrina began to work towards becoming a certified veterinary assistant through Penn Foster. She has since transitioned to working full time as a veterinary assistant. She loves being able to help our doctors in appointments and create strong bonds with our patients! Katrina always has a smile on her face.
At home, Katrina has a tuxedo cat who is 5 years old named Fiona Bella. She recently moved to Santa Maria when she met her boyfriend Geoff and added to her fur baby family. She now has 2 boxers: 4 year old Roscoe P Coltrane and 1 year old Cletus.
