Tricia has been in the veterinary field since 1997 when her love for animals spurred her to apply to a local hospital. That love and compassion has grown and made her the wonderful coordinator she is today. Tricia shares her home with Riley, the dog, and her two cats, Max and Cooper. Tricia’s favorite place to take Riley is camping- especially if there is water around. Riley loves swimming so much, he will swim for hours if given the chance. Riley is Tricia’s baby and will go anywhere she does and he makes sure she is safe.
Tricia loves to be outdoors camping, playing softball or going to her children’s sport functions. Her favorite restaurant is Giuseppe’s Italian Restaurant!
ReDonda began working at Raleigh Hills in 2005 when she found an ad in the newspaper for a receptionist position here at the hospital. ReDonda had never worked with animals before and thought it would be a great experience. Six years later she is still very happy with her decision. ReDonda shares her home with her husband and her adorable son, who was born on November 14th, 2011.
Serena has been volunteering or working in the animal industry since she was 12 years old. She has always had a passion for animals and was driven to care for them starting with volunteering at the Portland Zoo and a Reptile Zoo in Corvallis. Serena began working at Raleigh Hills Animal Hospital in 2006.
Serena shares her home with two cats, Miss Kitty who is 9 and Belle who is just 1 yrs old. Miss Kitty was originally named Broadway after the road in North East Portland. This is because when she was little she was almost hit by a car when while running across Broadway straight toward Serena meowing the whole way. Miss Kitty did not have a microchip and her owners could not be located so Serena took her in and the name Miss Kitty just stuck. Belle is the newest addition to the Pierce family and being very young, she loves to jump and bounce off the walls… literally. She also loves to lick your face when you are trying to go to sleep.
In her spare time, Serena loves to travel to Cannon Beach and go fishing on the Columbia River. She also enjoys hunting with her father for Elk and Deer on Mt. Hood. If you are looking for a good restaurant check out Giovanni’s in Beaverton, it is a family owned Italian restaurant and has the best seafood fettuccini alfredo ever!
Stephanie has been with Raleigh Hills for six years and began her career with animals when she was 16 working at a pet shop on the island of Maui. The pet shop was family owned and they really cared about all of their pets. Stephanie also worked for a veterinary clinic in Boston for a few years and has held other types of jobs in between.
Stephanie shares her home with Finnegan, a 5-year-old kitty who is very sweet and surprisingly tolerant of her 2-year-old son. Finnegan is not very smart but does allow Stephanie’s son to sit on him without much complaint. Unfortunately, over the last two years, Stephanie has lost two of her dear cats but in time hopes to add back to the family. Stephanie also has a couple embarrassing stories about her pets! Her cat, Luna, once pooped on a friend while they were sleeping at her house and her old cat, Wally, used to drag underwear out of the laundry basket whenever people were over. He was quite the character!
Stephanie and her husband are both avid readers and love to spend way too much time at Powells Book Store!
