    Manager/Vet Tech

    Kathleen is Dr. Cohen's wife, vet tech, receptionist, moral support and all around indispensable asset. Without Kathleen none of this would have ever been possible. Kathy is an accomplished horsewoman with over 30 years of experience as a trainer and competitor in the horse world. She has been a Quarter Horse trainer, with horses competing and placing in prestigious events like the Quarter Horse Congress. Her current project is smaller in stature, but no less challenging and equally rewarding, driving miniature horses. This year will be her first year to compete in the nationals, and has high expectations with "Tater" and "NV." When she isn't working with the horses she is helping Dr. Cohen with his practice.
