Kate Allen, DVM


Dr. Allen - Manchester Veterinary Clinic - CT

Kate Allen has had two passions throughout her life: a love of learning through scientific exploration and a love of sharing science with others through education and communication. This included a fair number of self-guided ‘expeditions’ as a child, which ranged from hunting for salamanders in the Delaware River to digging up Industrial-era artifacts in the backyard of her grandparents’ home. Kate discovered in college that she enjoyed teaching science just as much as she enjoyed learning it and became a teaching assistant and tutor for various undergraduate classes.  When Kate graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and Archaeology in 2008, she spent a year assisting in a 4th grade classroom; not only did she further her skills as an educator, but she also learned how to manage 21 highly-intelligent, energetic animals who loved to play soccer and always came to the cafeteria with muddy hands.  Kate had a fabulous time returning to Cornell for her veterinary education, graduating in 2013 with the Finger Lakes Kennel Club Scholarship and the Grant Sherman Hopkins prize for her studies in anatomy.  Her major interests are in surgery and medicine. 


Kate has been with the Manchester Veterinary Clinic since 2013. She and her husband, Colin, live in Tolland were they spend a lot of time working in their yard. They share their home with their girls (cats!) River and Faye.  In her spare time, Kate enjoys reading historical fiction, knitting, swing dancing, and singing jazz music.
