Katherine was born in Albuquerque and spent her childhood here and in Antonito, CO on a family-owned piece of land where she and her parents enjoyed their horses, dogs, cats, and beavers in the lake. She comes from a long line of family military service and joined the United States Army, eventually retiring as a Lt. Colonel in Miami, Florida. A decade prior to retirement Katherine realized her life passion was to work toward improving the lives of animals, a passion she shared with her father. Although her beloved father passed, she is blessed to have her best friend and mom as part of her daily life. She is part of a large family and owns 2 horses, 2 dogs, 3 cats, and her saltwater fish tanks. She enjoys helping the many various types of animals that come to ABQ PetCare and continuing to learn daily. In her free time, Katherine enjoys being with her family and friends, her companion animals, reading, hiking, swimming, white-water rafting, zip lines, world travel, and continuing education.
