I was born and raised in Arizona but moved to Portland in 2015. I come from a family of animal lovers and grew up riding horses and raising animals for the county fair. I got my first dog, Oscar, when I was 16 and he inspired me to work with animals for a living!
I live with my partner, Allen, and our two dogs Zeke and Oscar. We spend our free time camping, hiking, and exploring dog parks!
Born in San Francisco, I began working in the veterinary field in 2007. Although I originally planned to be a veterinarian, I discovered my passion for the hands-on technical aspect that defines veterinary assisting and being there to comfort patients during times of stress. My top priorities include creating a fear-free environment for pets and educating clients on preventive healthcare so that pets can lead long and healthy lives. Although I don’t have fur babies at home, I treat all my patients as if they are my own. I have lived in Portland since 2009 and enjoy hiking, music, reading, and crafting.
I was born and raised on the beautiful South Coast of Massachusetts, surrounded by forests and beaches. In 2015, I earned my B.S. in Biology from the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!) and started working in education and animal care at zoos and aquariums in the Northern and Southeastern US. I began work as a veterinary assistant in Columbia, SC, and then moved out to Oregon in 2019, where I started here at Wildwood. I love having the opportunity to work with animals on a daily basis, and to combine it with my passion for healthcare.
My boyfriend, Steve, and I enjoy watching movies and F1 racing, trying new cooking recipes and playing with my dachshund, Bowie, and my chi-weenie, Long Jump.
I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and attended the University of Missouri. I then moved to Missoula, Montana for a year before settling into Portland in 2019. I started my career in veterinary medicine working as a receptionist and quickly realized I needed to be more hands on with the animals! After 8 months, I began my training as an assistant. I look forward to expanding my career in veterinary medicine by one day becoming a certified technician!
I have a German Shorthair named Oscar and in our free time we spend our days exploring Oregon, hiking, camping and cooking.
Amira was born and raised in SE Portland! She’s been working in the vet field for around 8 years, and couldn’t imagine working in any other industry. She has a dog named Franklin and a cat named Sailor!
When she’s not at work, Amira likes to spend time outside with her dog hiking or camping, cooking, and working on projects around the house! She’s also a lover of live music and hanging out with friends.
Originally from Mexico City, I grew up in the beautiful mountains of Montana. I studied languages, literature, and photography at Montana State University and later earned my master’s degree in Community Health. I began my career in veterinary medicine when I moved to Portland in 2019. I live with my partner, Jacob, and our kitty, Chuchito. In my free time, I enjoy crocheting, watching scary movies, and tending to my plants.
I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and attended the University of New Mexico where I obtained a B.S. in Biology and a B.S in Psychology. After working as an EMT in New Mexico for a few years, I decided to switch from human medicine to veterinary medicine. I hope to one day be accepted to veterinary school.
I enjoy spending my free time snowboarding, hiking, camping, cooking, and spending time with my 3.5 year old Bloodhound mix named Opi.
I’ve been in Portland since I was in the 3rd grade! I started in the vet field when I was 22 as a vet receptionist. I have two dogs Patty Cupcake and Jackie Brown, both rat terriers. I recently adopted a feisty kitty named Emi, who I adore. And last but not least, I have a Crested Gecko named Ben.
In my free time I like to explore Portland with my dogs, read, paint/draw, I like socializing with my friends and trying new restaurants going to concerts.
