Lisa joined us in 2013. The team got to know Lisa and her family as clients, so when a receptionist positioned openned, Lisa was immediately invited to join the team. Her love of all animals and her calming presence make her ideal for working our urgent care hours. Lisa is currently pursuing a degree in business administration and this role allows her to use that knowledge to help people and their pets.
Katie started in the veterinary field when her cousin convinced her to apply for a job at the veterinary hospital she worked at. That was 15 years ago, and she has been hooked ever since. Katie shares her home with her husband, two children and their dog Lobo. Lobo looks like an Australian shepherd mix and has the brains to prove it. He can often be a little too smart, thus keeping Katie on her toes! The family loves to go hiking through the Columbia Gorge and taking road trips whenever possible.
Fun Fact: Katie and all of her pets have been named after John Wayne movie characters!
