  • Katie Winn

    I have been a part of the Town East-Galloway Animal Clinic family since February, 1999. I am a receptionist and started doing technician work as well. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to work in both areas because I not only get to work with the animals but have also been able to form great relationships with our clients. I am as passionate about what I do as everyone else that works here. We all have a close bond that goes beyond just co-workers and crosses into a family type atmosphere. Outside of work I have a son,Charlie, who recently acquired a ball python named George Harrison, which added to our family of dogs,a pack of poodles. I also have a son, Lynkon, born in March 2009. Animals have always been a huge part of my life and I intend for them to always be. Katie is currently awaiting the birth of another baby while taking a break from practice.  We wish her well!
