Though we are a close team, you may see different faces from time to time as we enjoy working with local college students in there pursuit of education.  You may also see the occasional intern or student observing as well.

Front Receptionists and Office Staff:

Tamela is a wonderful asset to our clinic.  Her smiling face greets you while she works with efficiency to make your visit go smoothly.   She has lived in Polk County for over 35 years and enjoys crafts, reading, and weekend family outings.  She has been an integral part of our team for years.





Sabrina is such a cheerful and welcoming addition to our crew.  She is very involved with her family and local community.  She has been with us for several years as a valued team member.

 Amanda's smiling face will mostly be seen at the front desk but she is always available to help our assistants in rooms and surgery.  She has worked for years with dogs at The Shaggy Dog and enjoys time spent with family and her Australian Shepherd.  She is often the one behind our window art up front!


Savanna-Lin has joined our team and is a recent transplant from Bend.  She brings a smile to greet you and is enjoying the Northwest as a previous Hawaii resident. She often brings amazing Hawaiian treats she has made to share with the team!



Veterinary Nurses and Assistants:


Sydney is a fun and engaging member of our team.  She and her husband enjoy the short and the tall (Dachsunds and Great Danes) but have a loyal old Labrador cross to split the difference.  She has a passion for the critters.  Since her hire in 2016 she had become a valuable asset in all areas of our practice.  She is both found being of assistance at the front desk as well as a working with your pets and the doctor in rooms and surgery.


Kristi is a great asset in rooms and surgery.  She is an avid horse rider and dog trainer. She is planning on applying to Veterinary School to pursue her love of animals.  She is going to be a wonderful veterinarian though when that day comes we will miss her skills and personality on our team.


Tatum loves those short dogs - she is a corgi and basset fan.  She is a knowledgeable addition to the team and is currently working on her schooling as a veterinarian technician while using her skills and knowledge to benefit our team.  Hired in 2016 she is wonderful with the animals and their owners.


Debby is still a part of our team (for over 14 years and going strong) and enjoys helping clients learn about their new (and old) pets.  She takes time out of her family and dog show life to help us out on a day here and there.
