National Cattlemen’s chief veterinarian hails from
college’s charter class
Dr. Kathy Simmons has worked in an animal hospital, on her family’s West Virginia farm, and on Capitol Hill. For the past two years, she has been a leading voice for animal care and health regulatory issues in her role as chief veterinarian for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA).
Simmons is also a proud graduate of the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine’s founding Class of 1984. “Many of us who were a part of the first class had worked very hard to advocate for the formation of a veterinary college in Virginia,” she said. “I personally was involved with the work of the Citizens Committee for a Veterinary College in Virginia.”
