Dr. Caitlin Harris (nee Hutcheson)
“I knew as a young child that I wanted to be a veterinarian but I never imagined where that dream would take me. I studied in Western Australia, which gave me the opportunity to work with horses in Indonesia and participate in spay/neuter clinics in remote communities in outback Australia as well as work with owners and their pets in many different situations. I love that my job allows me to look after the well-being of animals, form a bond with my clients as well as help the community. You couldn’t ask for a better career than that!” ~ Dr. Caitlin Harris (nee Hutcheson)
