Katie Schafer

Veterinary Assistant

Katie has been with Banfield since June 2014. She moved around a lot as a child but found her home in the Charlotte area. Katie and her husband have several pets including Melody, a bulldog mix; Abby, a lab mix; Jojo, a beagle; Loki, a husky mix; and 5 cats named Navia, Twister, Buckwild, Buttons and Elsa. In her spare time, she likes to read, watch movies, travel, bake, play with her pets and rescue animals. She never thought to work in this field because she decided she wanted to have her own bakery for pets. One of her friends works at a Banfield though and convinced her to apply, because it would help increase her knowledge of pets and their nutritional needs. In August of 2018, Katie will be starting classes for the RVT program through Penn Foster.
