Education: Ross University, Oklahoma State University
Dr. Katie Parsley grew up in Deer Park, NY surrounded by pets. She has always known she was going to be a veterinarian—and began to work in animal hospitals when she was just 15 years old.
She graduated from Villanova University in 2004 with a BA in Art History, as well as concentrations in Comprehensive Science and Studio Art. After college and for the next 7 years, she worked in animal hospitals in many capacities such as assistant, receptionist, groomer, and tech. She then decided to complete her doctorate of veterinary medicine at Ross University, on the island of St. Kitts. Finishing her clinical year at Oklahoma State University, she returned to Long Island to practice small animal medicine. Since graduating in 2015, she has steadily worked in general practice and is excited to join our team at West Hills. Her professional interests include internal medicine, surgery, and ophthalmology.
Dr. Parsley currently resides in East Islip with her rescued pets – 7 cats, a dog named Lizzie, and a chinchilla. When not at work she enjoys gardening, traveling, and spending time with family.
