Meet our Hospital Manager

Kathy Kent joined Westgate Pet and Bird in March 2016.  She is a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager (CVPM) and is planning on getting certified as a Professional in Human Resources.

As part of a U.S. Air Force family, Kathy enjoyed a variety of cultural experiences living and traveling all over the world.  She spent 20+ years in Germany prior to moving to Texas, in various management roles to include the Animal Care Fund with the US Army where she managed 14 Army Veterinary Clinics.  

Kathy enjoys traveling, stamp and shell collecting, hiking, gardening and cooking.  She has 2 Dogs:  Golden Retriever- Kira and an Australian Silky Terrier - Sammy.

Kira is enrolled in the Morris Animal Foundation Lifetime Golden Retriever Study.  This study is conducted to identify genetic, environmental and nutritional risk factors for cancer and other major health problems in dogs.  Findings for this study could lead to better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer and other canine diseases.

Kathy understands the special role your pet(s) play in your family.  Her goal is to ensure that the staff at Westgate Pet and Bird provides the highest quality medical, surgical and dental care for patients as well as excellent customer service.
