*Who is filling out this Interview?
Katherine van Ekert

*Where are you from?
I’m an Australian living in San Francisco

*Tell me a little about yourself?
I’m a veterinarian and dog mom to Delilah, a five-year old rescue staffy cross. I moved to San Francisco two years ago with my husband, and currently work in operations and marketing for a veterinary house call company, VetPronto. Back home, I worked for the RSPCA animal shelter, which is where I met Delilah. I no longer work in practice, but do some voluntary vet work on the side for VetSOS, a mobile outreach service for San Francisco’s homeless.
