Catherine Loughner ‘95
Veterinarian/Medical Director, VCA Greenback Animal Hospital


I’m a 1995 St. Francis grad who attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for undergrad (Animal Science) and University of Illinois for my DVM degree. I’m a life-long Girl Scout which helped prepare me for a career in leadership while St. Francis helped prep me for the rigorous education I would need to become a veterinarian. I’ve been in my current position as Medical Director in a small animal only hospital for 4 years and a veterinarian for 17 years. I’ve worked all over the state but settled in Sacramento to be near my parents and my sister and her family.
