HEAD VETERINARIAN - Dr. Katherine Robinson:
Dr. Katherine (Kate) Robinson is excited and honoured to be taking over the Head Veterinarian reins for the 2018 Canadian Challenge and beyond.
Kate has been with the race as a veterinarian since 2010, under the mentorship of previous Head Vet, Dr. Ruth Sims. Kate knows she has some big shoes to fill taking over for Dr. Sims, but is looking forward to it. When not out on the trail with the Challenge, Kate is an equine specialist working in Field Service at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. Her major interests are lameness and sports medicine, which translate well when working on the sled dogs. Kate has participated in several of the veterinary/musher education days put on by Dr. Sims, and is a member of the ISDVMA.
