Name: Katelyn Farally, CVT
- As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A teacher
- How long have you been a VT? – 2 years
- What makes MVA a great place to work/ what’s your favorite thing about MVA? Too many things. Metropolitan is an excellent organization to work for because I believe that creativity thrives here. In all aspects of the hospital I feel our voices are heard – our team from top to bottom is always striving to improve practices and protocols to better our patient care/safety, and employee/client satisfaction. The level of medicine practiced behind our walls is outstanding, and the level of nurses we have impress me daily. I love seeing students (nursing assistants, externs ect) learn and watching their passion for veterinary medicine grow. I feel that we as a hospital are strong and the difference we make in our patients and clients lives is monumental!
- What is your next professional development goal? VTS? Give a lecture? Learn a new skill? My professional goals are to grow clinically as a nurse, and continue to grow educating those around me. I absolutely love to teach and share my knowledge to those around me. Teach lectures – teach anyone who is willing! Possibly a VTS someday.. just unsure in what!
- Do you have any pets? Robbie (sheltie) and Yonkers (dlh) and share a russian tortoise with Hahn D named Ernesta!
- What is your favorite word? This week.. Monumentally
- What is your least favorite word? Moist
- What sound or noise do you love? When dogs drink water
- What sound or noise do you hate? The intercom in the treatment room!
- What is your favorite smell? Lavender
- What is your favorite thing about Autumn? All the colors
- Do you have any unusual talents or special skills? ..
- What three things do you always carry with you? Phone, Keys, Credit cards
- What is your weirdest phobia? Clusters of things (pimples, mushrooms, bumps… ew)
- What is your guilty pleasure? Always wine. But really not that guilty about it…
- If you were a dog or cat, what breed would you be? Probably a sheltie like my dog – high anxiety with little actual drive to do anything about it.
