Meet Dr. Kristensen

Katie is a native of Marin County. She grew up in Corte Madera and went to Redwood High School. After graduation, she went to UC Davis where she received a BS in Psychology. She moved back to Marin after undergrad and worked as a veterinary technician in Novato for a couple years. Katie had always been interested in animals and medicine, but her experience as a technician solidified her decision to become a veterinarian. She moved back to Davis in 2005 to go to veterinary school and graduated in 2009. 

After graduating, Katie began working as a veterinarian at the San Mateo SPCA. Working at the shelter was a wonderful experience for her because she was able to see hundreds of animals with various ailments and truly hone her medical and surgical skills. Despite all of the very rewarding experiences shelter medicine had to offer, it had its frustrations as well.  It was particularly difficult to not be able to help animals with more involved medical or surgical needs because they were not deemed “adoptable” or because of lack of funding. She really missed working with people and their pets in the setting of a family veterinary hospital.  As luck would have it, an opening at the Fairfax Veterinary Clinic revealed itself to her, and in April, 2011, Katie moved back home to Marin. She is enjoying being close to her family and childhood friends again.


Katie now resides in Corte Madera with her husband Justin and their daughter Emily. They also have two cats named Mikey and Eddie who have lots of personality and are a constant source of entertainment. When Katie is not working she enjoys her other job of being a mom and when she occasionally gets some down time she loves reading and connecting with friends. Katie also enjoys taking long weekend trips up to Lake Tahoe with her family.

Testimonials

The Doctors, Techs and Front Desk staff are always friendly, professional, very knowledgeable and treat my dogs with the utmost care. Their compassion and love of animals always shows forth and I would never take my dogs anyplace else for routine care. I even have the staff cut my dogs nails. I highly recommend Fairfax Veterinary Clinic.
