Technician Assistants

Kathryn started working at Hillsboro Vet Clinic in April of 2018. She is a NAVTA Approved Veterinary Assistant. She always had pets in her life, including guinea pigs, parakeets, a dog, and a cat. Her pets have always been a huge part of her life, and they are her inspiration to work in the veterinary field. Kathryn started working with animals when she became a dog walker in 2016. She hopes to one day continue her education and become a Veterinary Technician. In her free time, Kathryn enjoys playing with her cat Elliot and studying at local coffee shops.

Elizabeth is a Certified Veterinary Assistant that graduated from Carrington College in 2017 and has been working in the veterinary world for 3 years now. One of her biggest reasons for entering the veterinary field was to be the voice for animals. (Because they can’t talk.) In her free time she 
loves being with her dog Paisley who is a Blue Heeler mix and has lots of energy! She also is addicted to watching “Friends” on Netflix and just loves being with family.


















Pet Care Coordinators

Megan is a recent college graduate from Portland State University and a lover of cats and big fluffy dogs (the bigger the dog, the better). Returning to the clinic as a receptionist, she will do all she can to make sure your pets get the best care they can from the phone, to the moment you and your furry family walk into the clinic, to when you walk out the door!

Denise was born in Portland, but has lived all over. She has always had a Love for animals, all her life, in fact people would say she had an arrow pointing towards her for all the strays to find her! While growing up, she had the usual furry pets, but it’s when she moved to England that she got into the exotic critters! Working at a wildlife rescue park and St Tiggy Winkles Hedgehog Hospital, gave her real experience. Currently her free time is filled up with car racing, and Badger, my 1/2 Alaskan Malmute-1/2 Siberean Husky puppy! After 30 years of working in the dental field, she’s excited to be able to combine her love for animals with her experience to help make sure our clients and their pets get the best of care- including their teeth!
