There’s a new vet in Kokomo

Dr. Katie Rigsby, who Kokomo residents may remember as Katie Hardie, daughter of longtime Kokomo residents Kevin and Nancy Hardie, is looking forward to moving back home to practice veterinary medicine. She graduated from Purdue in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science. She then worked for Merial Animal Health as a sales representative and sales trainer for six years in Atlanta, Georgia and Cincinnati, Ohio.

From there, she went on to receive her doctorate in veterinary medicine at the University of Georgia in May 2014. Although she loves all aspects of veterinary medicine, her professional interests include dermatology, urology, geriatrics, and community outreach. In her spare time, Dr. Rigsby enjoys spending time with her husband, Mitchell, and two dogs, Moose and Toby, as well as running, boating, and traveling. She looks forward to getting involved in a church family as well as the Kokomo community. She is very excited to join the Jefferson Road Animal Hospital family, and will be involved in the hospital’s “Caring for Your Best Friends” event, beginning tomorrow.
