Dr. Julia Stricker Esposito
Practice Owner, Veterinarian
Dr. Julia Esposito quite literally grew up here at Clermont Animal Hospital. Her father, the hospital’s founder, renovated a side-by-side apartment building and turned half of it into the family’s home and the other half into his own veterinary clinic. Dr. Esposito was only four years old when she was put to work answering phones, taking messages, and helping in the exam rooms! She’s been caring for the area’s pets and animal owners here at the hospital ever since. Now, she’s proud to carry on her father’s legacy as the owner, operator, and chief veterinarian.

Dr. Esposito was born in Auburn, Alabama during her father’s time in veterinary school. She started volunteering here at the clinic at the age of 10, and was put on the payroll by the time she was 15. After graduating high school, she headed to Northern Kentucky University to study biology and chemistry, earning her Bachelor’s degree in 1998.

Next, Dr. Esposito was accepted into Ohio State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, continuing to work as a Veterinary Assistant here at Clermont Animal Hospital during summers and school breaks, and earned her Doctorate in 2002. Dr. Esposito completed a rotating small- and exotic-animal internship at Animal Medical Center in New York City, then returned to Clermont Animal Hospital as an Associate Veterinarian. She became a partner in 2006, and took over full ownership after her father’s passing in 2018.

Dr. Esposito especially loves the variety of animals she gets to treat—on any given day, she might have a monkey in one exam room, a bird in the next, and a wild raccoon in another! She’s also fond of learning new things on a continual basis, and she loves to pass on her knowledge and skills through the power of education. To date, five of her student-employees have gone on to become veterinarians themselves, and dozens of other students and mentees have become Veterinary Technicians.

Away from work, Dr. Esposito likes reading, scrapbooking, staying active in her church and her sons’ Cub Scout pack, coaching her older son’s soccer team, and spending quality time with her family and pets at home. She and her husband have two boys, Joe and Michael, and share their lives with three animal companions: Roxie, a Siberian Husky who refuses to go on a walk unless Dr. Esposito’s husband comes along, and two loveable but mischievous cats who go by Minerva and Weasley.
Dr. Katherine Bachman
Associate Veterinarian
It is with sincerest sadness that I announce my resignation from Clermont Animal Hospital to you all effective the end of this month, as I have accepted an opportunity to transition into an emergency veterinarian position for one of the local referral facilities. This last year and a half has been one of the best times of my life achieving my lifelong goal of becoming a veterinarian and returning home to the practice that helped nurture and develop me into the veterinarian that I am today. Thank you for having been accepting and trusting of my capabilities during this past year. It has been my deepest honor to serve you and your furry/scaly/feathered family members. While I may no longer be a full time associate, I will remain on staff part time to smooth the transition between myself and the esteemed veterinarian we will hire in the future, so that we may continue serving you and your pets efficiently and to the highest standards that you’ve come to expect from us.

Sincerely,
Dr. Bachman
