Catherine Arruda : Certified Veterinary Technician

Catherine Arruda, a Plymouth Massachusetts native, was introduced to horses at the age of ten. Before learning how to ride she took vaulting lessons. It did not take long for Catherine to discover her passion for horses. Shortly after she began vaulting she began to take riding lesson at a local barn. After working at local barns throughout high school Catherine attended Mount Ida College where she earned her Bachelors of Science in Veterinary Technology. While at Mount Ida College Catherine made the Dean’s list for eight consecutive semesters and was inducted into the Massachusetts Zeta Chapter Alpha Chi National College Honor Society. During her last year at Mount Ida College she completed six externships. In the spring of 2014 Catherine graduated from Mount Ida College as a Veterinary Technologist with summa cum laude.
In 2012 Catherine received her Massachusetts riding instructor license and taught lessons at a local barn during her spare time between semesters. After completing her degree, Catherine’s love and passion for horses lead her to South Shore Equine Clinic. At South Shore Equine Clinic Catherine is able to use all of the technical skills she learned at Mount Ida College. She is able to monitor and care for hospitalized patients, attend farm calls, assist in numerous surgical procedures, and assess blood work.
In her spare time Catherine enjoys riding her fourteen year old Arabian mare named “Ducky” and her fourteen her old Paint mare named “Callie”. She enjoys riding both English and western and can be found competing in team penning, team sorting, and barrel racing. Catherine plans to take the Veterinary Technician National Examination in the fall of 2014 to become a Certified Veterinary Technologist.
