Kathryn is one of our  Licensed Veterinary Technicians who nursed injured birds and other small animals that crossed her path while growing up in rural Northern Michigan.  She officially began her career in veterinary medicine as a kennel attendant and receptionist 28 years ago in Royal Oak, MI.  After watching the wonderful technicians in action at the clinic where she bathed dogs and answered phones, she was hooked!  Four years later, she graduated from the Veterinary Technician program at Macomb Community College.

Kathryn has extensive experience working at various emergency , specialty and small animal practices in Southeast Michigan as well as Northern Michigan (her most exciting job was driving a “pet ambulance” in and around Detroit!) She now considers Midland and Northern Animal Clinic as her home and offering the highest quality of care to furry family members and their humans is her highest priority.

Kathryn and her two teen-aged sons are avid cult-movie, video game and science-fiction fanatics and they consider themselves as the original “geek squad.”  Although she loves to be a couch potato during a good movie, the family’s golden retriever “Marley” can always be counted on to get the geek squad offline and on the move!


Amanda graduated from Michigan State University in 2011 with a degree in Animal Science. She then attended Baker College and graduated from the Veterinary Technology program in 2013.  She is mom to two yellow labs named Lila and Gunther, and two Siamese mix cats named Chloe and Tallulah. 

She likes to spend her free time with friends and family, at the dog park with her kids, or reading a good book.

Amanda did her internship with NAC prior prior to graduating with her Veterinary Technology  degree, and we were very pleased to have stay on with us afterward as a full-time Licensed Veterinary Technician!



Katie joined the Northern Animal Clinic team in the spring of 2007 as our first Licensed Veterinary Technician. Katie is a 2007 graduate of the Macomb College Veterinary Technician Program. She graduated in the top 3 of her class and was the President of the Macomb Chapter of the North American Veterinary Technician Association. Katie started her veterinary career as a Veterinary Assistant in 1998 which gave her the insight into the profession that she needed to follow her career path.  

Katie is a full-time Mom to Brady & Joslyn, so we don't get to have her her as often as we used to!

Katie lives in Midland with her husband Jonathan, son Brady and daughter Joslyn. Her furry family includes Annie Oakley the energetic Golden Retriever and feline brothers Gus and Jack.
