Kathleen, Practice Manager & Lola & Wanda
We welcomed Kathleen to our practice in 2013. She oversees the staff and hospital operations – everything from human resources, finance, inventory, OSHA and DEA compliance, marketing, social media, and more! She can be found on the treatment floor and in exam rooms assisting in patient care as needed. She has completed her coursework in veterinary practice management at Patterson Veterinary University.
In 2012 she earned a degree in Architecture from The University of Kansas, and while attending school worked full time as the Shelter Manager at the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City. Upon graduation, when it came down to a choice between buildings and pets – we think she chose right! She fulfilled her devotion to pets by working as the Shelter Manager of the Humane Society before moving to Lawrence to join our team in 2013.
She remains passionate about pet rescue and has adopted many animals with various medical and behavioral problems, and has fostered many more. She is an excellent resource for behavior/training questions and can offer many tips and tricks for owners who are dealing with medical issues with their own pets at home.
Her current furry family consists of Lola, a French Bulldog rescue, and Wanda, a Cornish Rex (our office cat who fell in love with Kathleen and went home with her in 2016). She is an advocate for pets and their people!
