Dr Katherine Hodes, DVM
Dr. Hodes was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. She received her BA in Biological Chemistry from Grinnell College in Iowa and went on to receive her DVM degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2009. Like Dr. Gloor, Dr. Hodes started her career at the KC Cat Clinic as a veterinary assistant before going to vet school. After five years of “mixed animal practice” (i.e. cats AND dogs), she returned to the Cat Clinic in 2014 as a veterinarian in order to pursue her dream of feline medicine. Dr. Hodes is an active member of several veterinary organizations including the American Association of Feline Practitioners and The American Animal Hospital Association. She could not be more happy to be a part of the KC Cat Clinic team!
In her free time, Dr. Hodes enjoys reading, living vicariously through home-improvement television and going the gym (or at least pretending to go to the gym). She also enjoys lounging with her furry four-legged friends. She is also a big fan of sleeping in and eating food prepared by her chef husband, Jacob.
