Dr. Catarina Steele is originally from Florida and from a family of Portuguese immigrants. She completed her undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Florida and then moved to Southern California to attend veterinary school at Western University of Health Sciences. After graduation in 2014, she moved to the Bay Area with her husband and cats and worked as a small animal veterinarian at VCA for 7 years until joining Restful Paws in 2021.
Dr. Steele has always been interested in end of life care and making the experience easier for the owner and pet. Having been through it herself, she knows it’s not an easy decision and being able to provide comfort during this very difficult time is very important to her.
