Hello! I'm Dr. Katie Burke, BVetMed MRCVS, head vet and chief Sat-Nav operator at Peak Community Vet.
I'm an adopted daughter of the glorious Peak District, having been born not too far away in Yorkshire. I have a young family, two rescued Lurchers Fionn and Brigh, and a very fluffy British Short Hair called Bubba who all conspire to keep me busy when I'm not in uniform!
Having worked in traditional veterinary practice since qualifying from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 2002, in 2018 I fulfilled my dream of running my own business with the launch of Peak Community Vet.
I feel passionately that veterinary care should always be tailored to the individual needs of pets and their owners, and I wanted to be free of the limitations of typical veterinary practice - often this means spending just ten minutes rushing through a diagnosis on a stressed animal.
Peak Community Vet's mobile service allows me more time to get to know patients (their preferences, personalities, routines and histories), and build strong links with clients and the local community.
Convenience, compassion and quality are the founding principles of Peak Community Vet, and I promise you'll see and feel these in action on every visit.
I look forward to meeting you and your pets
