Dr. Koester is blessed to have spent a lot of time at her father’s veterinary hospital while growing up in small-town Indiana.
According to Dr. Koester "When I was four years old, I remember watching him perform surgery on Tuesdays so that my mom could run errands. On Christmas morning, my three siblings and I would always walk the dogs that were staying at the hospital before opening our gifts. We were only allowed to enjoy the Christmas festivities after the hospital chores were finished. Growing up with my dad’s practice next door was a wonderful experience that gave me an understanding of what it takes to be a terrific veterinarian.
She attended college at Northwestern University where one of the highlights was playing varsity lacrosse.

After Northwestern University, She received my veterinary degree with distinction/honors from Purdue University.
