Christa Seekatz, Manager
Christa joined the staff at CAH as a Veterinary and Kennel Assistant in 2013 after relocating from Atlanta, GA. She has 8 years previous experience in animal care in both veterinary and shelter settings. In addition to her experience in animal care, Christa holds an MFA in Theatre Scenery Design from Northern Illinois University. "This hospital is really unique in that every staff member is encouraged to offer ideas concerning policy and animal care. I feel like our input is valued whether our ideas are used or not. I also admire the way the doctors bounce thoughts off one another and ask questions of one another. I feel very confident bringing my own pets here for care because, the way the doctors confer, it seems like every patient has four doctors working on their case, even if the owners only see one in the exam room." Christa lives in Christiansburg with her husband Josh and their pets: Baxter, Ed, and Lua (cats); Mushin (dog); Bigwig and Batgirl (rabbits); and 8-Bit (variable king snake). When not at the clinic, Christa enjoys painting, bird watching, and playing video games with her husband.

After closing the bookstore in 2013 and moving to a smaller home in Barren Springs, Tracey tried some management positions but preferred her job at a local zoo, spending time with all of the cute and cuddly (well most of them) animals again. "Now, I am so proud to say that I work for CAH; with Dr. Gonzalez's expertise in surgery and Dr. Nightingale's leadership and knowledge, to our great staff who every day do all they can to provide the best care for our patients (and their people)."
