Ashley is one of our veterinary assistants! She is a very versatile team member, so you may see her in multiple roles within the practice. Ashley grew up in Portland, Oregon where her love for animals blossomed at a very young age. At the age of ten Ashley was given the most precious gift, her first dog. During those twelve years, she learned everything there is to learn about love, compassion, and responsibility as she grew up with one very special best friend. Her dog Kyla inspired her to create a lifelong mission of someday opening her own senior dog sanctuary.
Ashley attended Portland State University receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Art. While living in Portland, she volunteered for a few animal rescues and wrote grants for small no-kill shelters surrounding the greater Portland Metro area.
Ashley joined our team in October of 2016 and has been a valuable asset to our practice. She has a calming effect on our patients and often spends her lunch break comforting animals who are hospitalized. She is also in charge of our Facebook page! Ashley enjoys the simple life as she lives in a tiny home with her husband Zachary, two Siberian Huskies – Apollo + Alta and kitty Rico. She loves spending her days off in nature involved in activities such as hiking, kayaking, and camping.
