Katie Matzke, DVM
Dr. Katie Matzke was born and raised in Jupiter, Florida. She attended the University of Florida for both undergraduate and veterinary school, graduating from the UF College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. Katie and husband Josh with their two big dogs, Kahlua & Pazza, moved to Reno, Nevada upon Katie's graduation from veterinary school.
Katie found her niche working as a shelter veterinarian with Nevada Humane Society from 2013 to 2023. She loves the ability to give comfort and high-quality veterinary care to homeless pets. She has seen firsthand the need in the community for home euthanasia services, which led to the creation of Rover Veterinary Care in 2020.
In Reno, Katie and Josh expanded their family significantly with the addition of a few two-legged children - Emy, Thomas, and Patrick. Outside of work, Katie's favorite activity is running, frequently with her four and two-legged companions. Katie also loves reading and spending time at the river and the lake with her family.
Katie & family recently relocated (and expanded Rover) to her hometown of Jupiter, Florida. Katie continues her nonprofit work as a surgeon with a local nonprofit in addition to providing end-of-life care services through Rover for pets in Palm Beach & Martin counties.
