Kate began her career as an animal control officer in 1989. After graduation from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1999, she worked as a shelter veterinarian in California and Wisconsin. In 2001, she returned to UC Davis to become the first person in the world to undertake a residency in shelter medicine. Following completion of the residency, Kate remained at UC Davis to become the director of the Koret Shelter Medicine Program. Four of her favorite achievements are co-authoring "The Association of Shelter Veterinarians' Guidelines for Standards of Care in Animal Shelters", co-editing the textbook "Infectious Disease Management in Animal Shelters," collaborating in development and dissemination of the life-saving "cat portal", and co-creating the Million Cat Challenge.
