Kathryn completed her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Melbourne in 2015. After graduating, Kathryn completed a rotating internship in Melbourne where she developed a strong interest in surgery.
Kathryn became a Member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists by examination in Small Animal Surgery and completed the European residency program in Small Animal Surgery. As part of her training, Kathryn has published research on a novel transorbital surgical approach for removal of brain tumours in dogs. She has also published reference ranges for antebrachial joint angles to aid in surgical planning for correction of limb deformities in dogs. Kathryn enjoys teaching, having presented at the International Conference of Animal Neurology, Small Animal Oncology and Radiotherapy Symposium and mentoring many interns and residents over the years.
