 Katie Rawlings, DVM
Katie Rawlings, DVM

Dr. Katie Rawlings started going on farm calls at age seven with a family friend who was an equine veterinarian. In love with ?the romance of healing animals and helping their people,? she knew she would be a veterinarian. She considers veterinary medicine a complicated puzzle involving logic, data collection, and knowledge application to formulate plans and treatments. Within her field, she loves treating lacerations and wounds and sees them as a form of reconstruction. She also likes the variety of presentations found with internal medicine and surgery cases..

Dr. Rawlings completed a Masters in Business Administration from Washington State University, prior to becoming a veterinarian. She worked for both AT&T and Cingular Wireless managing the development of their product catalogs. While part of the IT community, she had the pleasure of managing teams throughout the United States and India to serve their cellular customers. Her life long passion for animals and their people brought her back to veterinary medicine after 7 years in the IT world. Dr. Rawlings graduated from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She has completed an internship and has greater than 7 years experience in both Small Animal Private Practice and Emergency Medicine.

Dr. Rawlings is a runner, hiker, camper and cross-country skier. Although it doesn?t happen enough, she relishes curling up in a comfy chair with a book and cup of coffee. She enjoys traveling and spending time with her husband, daughter and family. Dr. Rawlings considers her black Labrador, Emmie, a cherished friend, running partner and companion.
