Katie Hessou Saginaw Valley Equine Clinic

If you've visited Saginaw Valley Equine in person or called us on the phone, you've probably benefited from Katie's upbeat personality and expertise. Katie is our Customer Care Associate, Receptionist, and Surgery Coordinator. She answers phones, sets up appointments, schedules surgeries, and completes too many other office tasks to list them all. Katie loves that her job lets her meet so many horse lovers. She has a long history of loving horses, beginning as a youth exhibitor showing stock horses. She attended the University of Findlay, where she competed in Western All-Around Events and earned a Bachelor's degree in Equine Business Management. Katie also holds an Associate's degree in Western Equestrian Studies. When she's not at SVEC, she works horse shows in the office for Tom Powers and at Michigan Quarter Horse Shows for EKG Equine Services.

Katie grew up near Breckenridge and continues to make her home there. She enjoys spending time with her two daughters, Ava and Marissa; reading; and cooking. She also has a Golden Retriever, Hank, and 3 cats.

What do you do at SVEC?

I do a little bit of everything. I'm the receptionist, so my job includes customer care and secretarial work. I'm also the surgery coordinator and insurance coordinator.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I love that my job lets me meet so many horse lovers. I've loved horses as long as I can remember, beginning with my days as a youth exhibitor showing stock horses.

What are your greatest skills?

It comes naturally to me to always show compassion and care to our customers.

How do those skills benefit horses and their owners?

When your horse needs veterinary care, it's normal to feel anxious. I try to help our customers feel confident that we will provide the best possible clinical services in a safe, comfortable environment.
