Katie Childers, DVM
Ever since she was a little girl, Dr. Katie Childers has always wanted to be a veterinarian. She states, “It's such a blessing to have a career in the veterinary field; I get to do what I love!"
Dr. Childers began her education journey at Berry College where she majored in Animal Science. She then went on to fulfill her lifelong dream by earning her doctorate degree from the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine with an emphasis in Mixed Animal Medicine.
Dr. Childers' compassionate drive to work in the veterinary field is fueled by the unique challenges each day brings. She explains, "No two cases are ever exactly the same. Every day is a chance to learn something new and become better as a veterinarian and as a person." She wants her future clients to know that she is here for their pet at every phase of life - from the cute and playful early stages all the way to their dignified senior years. Client education is very important to her and no question is insignificant.
When she is not busy at work, Dr. Childers can be found spending time with her husband and son; the three of them share a passion for the outdoors! On their small farm you'll find 4 dogs, a cat, several chickens and a large garden. Family hobbies include camping, off-roading, and hunting (with their dogs). The family is also recently involved in the National Young Farmers Coalition and Georgia Off-road Ministries. They have found these programs to be a great way for them participate in community outreach while investing in their family bond and child's future.
Dr. Childers can’t wait to meet her future clients and is excited to continue her veterinary career with Monticello Veterinary Services!
