  • Kathryn McKinnon, BSc, RVT
    Registered Veterinary Technician / Technical Support Manager

    Kathryn here, I grew up in Edmonton and graduated from the UofA with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Biology. I always knew I wanted to work with animals but was not certain which field I should follow. I moved to Europe for 2 years to get experience of the world and when I came back I went into the NAIT Animal Health Technology program. I graduated in 2017 and have been working as an RVT since. I love working with clients and their ‘4 footed friends’ every day and brining a smile to people’s faces.  I have started to develop an interest in healthy weight management and dental care as I’ve been working in small animal clinics. Since coming to Whitemud Crossing I have adopted a ‘large horse’ aka Gimli, my Pyrenees x Akita beast who was just 5 months old when he came into our life. In my spare time I like to read and sing or go backpacking in the mountains with my husband.

She has recently moved back to her hometown of Medicine Hat, AB to complete a BSc in Nursing.
