Ashley grew up in Portland, Oregon where her love for animals blossomed at a very young age. She always wanted to pursue a career in pet care and was intrigued by the medical aspect of the veterinary field. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree from Portland State University, she volunteered for a few animal rescues and wrote grants for small no-kill shelters surrounding the greater Portland Metro area.
Ashley moved to Bend and joined our team in October of 2015, first hired as a nurse + client care specialist. She has been a valuable asset to our practice as she has grown into the Practice Manager role. Outside of work she loves spending time with her husband Zachary, two Siberian Huskies – Apollo + Alta and kitty Rico. She enjoys nature therapy and outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, and camping.
