    Dr. Kara Plotz

    Chief of Staff

    Dr. Kara Plotz is from Toronto, Canada and graduated from Ontario Veterinary College in 2007. She took an associate veterinary position with Banfield in Phoenix to get as far away from the snow and cold as possible. There she met her husband who transferred them to Fredericksburg, Virginia in 2009, where they spent 4 years. They settled in Charlotte in 2013 where they hope to stay for a long while. She is grateful Banfield has supported her through so much transition. She is interested in internal medicine, especially gastroenterology and endocrinology. She also has a "special" obsession with her two standard poodles, Mabel and Forest and has enjoyed learning to groom, which has become a bit of a side hobby. She also enjoys spending time outdoors, travelling and visiting family and friends. More Details >>
