Katie grew up in Anchorage, Alaska. She entered the veterinary field once moving to the continental United States and graduated with her associate's degree in 2015. Katie has a love for all reptiles, she currently has a very large ball python named Fluffy who loves to snuggle on the couch after a long day. Along with Fluffy, Katie has 3 dogs, 2 tortoises, 1 aquatic turtle, and 1 cat. Katie's dream is to one day have a reptile and alpaca farm.
