Rehabilitation Therapist


Kathy Waite

After graduating from the University of Maryland-College Park with a degree in Wildlife Conservation and Resource Management, I spent nine years working with small animals and exotics. Eventually I returned to school to further my education as a veterinary technician, graduating and earning my license in 2008. I joined Friendship in 2012 to expand my horizons and dive into the world of emergency and critical care.  I’ve long had an interest in Rehabilitation Therapy and in 2023 I began studies to pursue my Rehab certification.   Upon finishing my certification I joined our amazing Rehab team to help keep the cats and dogs of the DVM moving comfortably.

When not working, I enjoy hiking, amusement parks, and embarking on adventures around the DC area and hanging out with my dogs and cat. While I love working with all the wonderful veterinarians, technicians and support staff at Friendship, my dream is to rescue and care for sloths in Costa Rica.


Friendship provides state of the art, comprehensive services for our clients and patients. But, more than that, we provide a caring team who understand the unique human-animal bond. View Our Services
