Cassie, Practice Manager 

Cassie started her veterinary career at 17 years old when she got an afterschool job cleaning the local animal hospital in the evenings and taking care of their in-house pets. Cassie realized very quickly that the world of caring for animals was for her and has grown in her career and knowledge over the years working in general practice, exotics, emergency, physical therapy, and holistic veterinary medicine. Cassie’s love for all things pets worked its way into 7 years of training dogs in the evenings and fostering for local rescues specializing in Pitbulls and seniors of any breed.

Cassie is married and is owned by 3 dogs. In her free time Cassie enjoys baking, exploring the Oregon coast, gardening, and travel

Martha, Lead Receptionist

After moving to the Pacific Northwest and leaving her daycare business behind five years ago Martha still felt the need to take care of other people’s children. This time she thought she would shower her love and care on their fur babies. Now she is able to get her pet fix in at work and not bring home all the dogs and cats (and bunnies, and Guinea pigs, and chinchillas, etc, etc, etc).

When not at work Martha loves to hang out with her husband haunting antique stores, museums, used books stores, and occasionally even nature walks. Or she can be found snuggled at home with her husband and her two pups, Annie and Bixby, reading, watching old movies, or yakking with her two grown children.

Martha is Fear Free certified.
