Katie Usherwood, CVT

Katie is a Minnesota School of Business graduate with an Associate in Applied Science degree for Veterinary Technology.

Raised in the small town of Nisswa, MN, she developed a fondness for the outdoors. Some of her hobbies include snowmobiling, ATV-ing, painting and spending time on the lakes.

Because Katie has a passion for helping animals and also loves to educate people, she knew that being a vet tech would be the most rewarding career option for her.

Her loving family consists of her husband and daughter, a senior husky, Bella and five cats – Pearl, Pistachio, Rose Petal, Dusk and Little Grey.

When not working, Katie enjoys spending time in the outdoors as well as volunteering for the Crooked Lake Volunteer Fire Department.
