Dr. Katie Sielaff is a native of the Fox Valley area, where she grew up on a dairy farm in Greenleaf. She graduated from University of Minnesota Veterinary College in 2016. She began working at CountrySide shortly after graduation. Katie loves being able to practice at a clinic that's not only close to her hometown, but one where she can challenge herself both with companion animals and large animals. Her passion originally started with her dairy experience, but has quickly grown to include companion animal medicine where she strives to provide her patients with the best care and compassion.
Katie and her husband, Stephen, live in rural Seymour with their daughter, Clara, and their son, Rudy. Their little farmette keeps them busy with their dogs (Candy-beagle, Georgia-beagle/heeler), cats (Rory, Margo, Mabel), horse (Casey), Jacob sheep, Pygmy goats, and chickens. When they're not busy with the critters, they love to be outdoors and spending time with family.
