Dr. Katie Schlecker grew up near Baltimore, MD on a small horse farm. She attended Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine (aka: Virginia Tech), focusing on equine and small animal medicine during her time as a student.
After graduating in 2016, Dr. Schlecker completed an equine ambulatory internship in Rochester, New York, and later moved east and began practicing small animal medicine just outside of Saratoga Springs. Recently, she and her husband, a submarine officer in the Navy, moved to the Kingsland area.
Dr. Schlecker loves the variety that comes with veterinary medicine, but has special interests in ophthalmology, surgery, dentistry, and equine podiatry. In her off time, Dr. Schlecker enjoys trail riding, cycling, yoga, and cooking. She and her husband share their home with a menagerie of rescued pets (and adopted patients), including two dogs, two cats, and an Arabian mare. Dr. Schlecker is thrilled to join the team here, and is looking forward to providing care for the pets in our community
