Dr.  Latham

“Dr. Kathryn “Kat” Latham was born in Seattle, WA, but grew up here in middle Tennessee. Both of her parents are in the medical field, so it was only natural that she spent some time growing up in a clinic surrounded by medicine. However, when she was a teenager, she started working with animals and she knew then that was her calling. She completed her undergraduate degree with a Bachelors of Science and Agriculture at Murray State University. She also obtained her veterinary degree from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. Outside of work, some of Dr. Latham’s interests include spending time with her two corgis, Gracie and Darcy, and keeping them out of trouble. She also enjoys spending time reading, hiking, riding horses, and boxing. She is looking forward to meeting and your pets!”

PS: Dr. Latham’s spirit animal is a cat. Aloof and distracted by shiny objects!
