I grew up in Barrington, Illinois, in the suburbs of Chicago. Horses were my childhood passion and I spent most of my time horseback riding and working with polo ponies. After high school I moved out west to attend college in Colorado and Arizona. I have been working in the veterinary field since 2002, beginning as a receptionist at a small animal clinic in Tucson to an office manager at an animal hospital in Tempe to Practice Manager here at Kachina Animal Hospital. After graduating from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology, I moved up to the Prescott area to enjoy the cooler weather and all the outdoor adventures it has to offer. At home I have two Terriers named Fenway & Sidda & a feisty Yorkipoo named Bubba. In my free time I love camping, ATVing & gardening.
Hello there! I am a Prescott Native, born & raised. It is still my favorite place to be and I'm proud to call it home. I started in the veterinary field directly out of high school. In this field I've tried it all - I started as a kennel attendant, moved to reception, tech'd for a short time, and, last but not least, into management. My passions are family and animals. I cherish the relationships made with the fur babies and their families. I have many fur babies of my own including cats, dogs, pigs and chickens. I am the proud mom of 3 amazing daughters (and blessed with several 'bonus' kids). We spend as much time as possible in our beautiful outdoors. I joined Kachina in 2014 and I am honored to be part of this amazing team! Come on in & say hi!

Hi, I'm Katie, a 20-something year old self proclaimed office comedian. I try to find the good in every situation. If I'm not working, you can catch me hiking or hanging out with my pets at home. If you need a laugh, come find me!

Hi, I'm Amy! People think I am funny. If you ask me, I would say.... you betcha. I have lived in Arizona my whole life and I can't imagine living anywhere else. One day, I would love to have a small hobby farm with pigs, chickens and a milk cow. Currently, my farm consists of two dogs and a few rabbits. I am pleased to be a part of Kachina Animal Hospital and look forward to meeting you and your furry friend.
