Kay joined SVA in 1988 after completing a B.A. in German and B.A. in Sociology from Whitman College. She started as a receptionist traveling between the three clinics that made up SVA before eventually committing to getting her Veterinary Technician License in 1997. Kay’s veterinary interests are primarily geared toward cats. Specifically, Kay loves working in feline medicine focusing on pediatrics, geriatrics, and behavior. She also loves exploring parasitology and zoonotic diseases. When she’s not at work Kay is often gardening, crocheting, or reading. She and her Irish Setter Harry are ruled by three cats: the Kitty Petufchen, Elektra, and Nyx the Darkness.
