Dr. Diane Healey grew up in Montana, and went to school at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. She moved to the Portland area in 1989 where she has been practicing small animal medicine for over 25 years. She took over Hillsboro Veterinary Clinic as the medical director in 2012 while later purchasing the practice in April of 2013.
Keeping up with the latest medical advances is important, and Dr. Healey is always excited when she can bring in new things to benefit her patients. She finds working with individual pets, getting to know their owners and finding what is unique and special in each patient to be the fun part of practice. From getting puppies and kittens started out right, to helping heal injuries, treat illness, or just providing comfort to aging pets, the daily challenges of clinic life are what she enjoys.
When at home, reading, long walks and touring the local vineyards are her hobbies. Weekends often find her curled up with 2 cats, a dog and a good book in her lap!
