Kirsten Munck ~ DVM/Owner
Dr. Kirsten Munck grew up in Vermont and completed her undergraduate education at Cornell University. After graduating, she relocated to Oregon to continue her career path and to enjoy the numerous outdoor pursuits Oregon has to offer. From a young age, Kirsten always wanted to become a veterinarian and grew up with beloved dogs, including her special German shepherd, Maria. Once in Oregon she was quickly adopted by her first cat, Jesse, who accompanied her for 20 years through graduate school in veterinary medicine at OSU and life’s many adventures! A move to the Puget Sound brought a very challenging and professionally enriching position for her in a Seattle general veterinary practice. In 2001 with her family, Dr. Munck decided to move to Bend to achieve her dream, which was to own her own practice…The Colorado Cat Clinic! The practice eventually outgrew its location in downtown Bend. With her expertise, a new building was designed and constructed especially for an all cat practice in the Northwest Crossing area. Dr. Munck spends most of her time at the clinic, but her rare free time is enjoyed with her husband Doug (a wildlife biologist) and daughter Gemma. Cooking, skiing, hiking and running are just a few of her favorite activities. She currently shares her home with her 2 dogs, Audrey & Layla, and 3 cats; Arthur, Rosa and Etta.
