Susanne Thompson

Hospital Administrator

Susanne was raised in Abilene, TX. She followed the family tradition by attending Texas A&M University. Getting a degree in Wildlife Biology did not open the doors she thought it would. She worked in retail for many years before finally finding her place in the veterinary field in 1990. She joined the Village Veterinary Clinic family in 2000 and said she instantly felt she was "home". She loves her VVC family, both coworkers, and clients.

Susanne lives with her three rescue dogs, Gideon, Gypsy, and Piglet.

She joined the Village Veterinary Clinic family in 2013 after graduating from Texas A&M with a double major in Biomedical Science and Bio-environmental Science. She quickly found she loved both the clinic and it's clients. There is no question that the feeling is mutual.

Christina and her husband, Daniel, live with their dogs, Izzy and Axel... and a sweet cat nicknamed Lucifer.


Katie Coate

Operations Manager

Kate was born and raised right here in Houston. As a small kid, she was obsessed with everything to do with animals and the army. She graduated from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in 2004, with a major in Criminal Justice and a Minor in Social Work. Katie then moved back to Houston to start a short-lived career with the Houston Police Department. While attending HPD’s academy in 2005, she started dating and became engaged to her current husband, Ben. That changed a few life perspectives and priorities. Katie ultimately decided to resign from the HPD, shortly after graduating from their academy. A few months later, she began her career with us here at Village Veterinary Clinic. She has become a “Jack of All Trades” by working as a technician, receptionist, administrative assistant, and manager. Her title changes day-to-day, depending on the need. She and Ben live in Katy with their two daughters, Lucy and Cora, their dog Turk and loveable cat, Summer.
