Vicki started at Hillsboro Veterinary Clinic in early 2017, but is no stranger to the veterinary field. She has always been a big animal lover and was raised with a veterinarian in the family. Growing up, her family had a small zoo in their home – including dogs, cats, rabbits, fish, birds, snakes, frogs, tortoises, and a bearded dragon.brit
She began working at an animal hospital almost fifteen years ago, starting in the kennel. She loved the hands-on environment with all the pets and that’s where her deep love for black labs started. She has been in the veterinary field ever since – working her way up from kennel, reception, office manager, and now to practice manager. She also successfully ran her own pet sitting business for a few years out of state after graduating college.
When she is not working here, she can be found traveling or enjoying the outdoorsy Pacific Northwest lifestyle with her pup Cooper.
