Dr. Kate Ferrell joined the team at Brackett Street in June 2016. She was excited to return to the Portland area to practice veterinary medicine after growing up on an island in Casco Bay.
Following completion of her undergraduate studies at New York University, Dr. Ferrell returned to Maine and worked as an assistant at a veterinary referral hospital where she gained invaluable experience. With the support and encouragement of family and friends, Dr. Ferrell moved to England with her husband and their beagle, Homer, to pursue training at the Royal Veterinary College. Five years later, she returned to the United States with her veterinary degree and family, which has expanded to include a son.
In her spare time, Dr. Ferrell enjoys reading with her son and exploring the beach. Her professional interests include small animal oncology and endocrinopathies.
