Katelyn grew up in Albia, Iowa and attended Albia High School. She continued her education at Iowa State University. Katelyn is a dog person; at home she has two dogs of her own plus a pet snake. Her favorite thing about working at the clinic is meeting all the animals that enter the clinic doors for treatment. Her advice for anyone wanting to join the clinic is to ensure that they’re open to learning and not afraid to ask questions. If she wasn’t such a rockstar at the clinic, she said she would want to thrift as her career. When Katelyn is not at the clinic, she spends her time thrifting, hiking, and playing with her daughter, Elora. If Katelyn could have a hidden superpower, it would be to read minds and be able to talk to animals.
