Dr. Kotelko attended UC Davis for both undergrad and veterinary school, attaining her degree in Veterinary Medicine in 2009. She practiced as a general practitioner in the CA Central Coast for the first two years out of vet school, then moved to Thousand Oaks to take on the challenge of overnight emergency medicine. Her interests include trauma and surgery and she loves the diversity of cases seen during emergency medicine. She missed being near the ocean, having volunteered with endangered sea turtles in Hawaii and having lived on the central CA coast, which brought her to the South Bay. During her time off, she loves to hang out with her 3 cats (Neville, Fang and Stevie), watch Hockey (Go Kings!!), play video games, and enjoy the outdoors.
