Dr. Diane Healey grew up in Montana before attending Colorado State University, and later moved to Portland in 1989 where she’s been practicing small animal medicine for over 25 years. In April 2013 she fulfilled her lifelong dream to own her own clinic by purchasing Hillsboro Veterinary Clinic.
The best part of being a vet is that by working with individual pet’s and their owners, Dr. Healey to get to know what’s special and unique about each one. Doesn’t matter if it’s a puppy or kitten, healing injuries, treating illnesses, or just providing comfort for an aging pet, she loves the challenge of helping each new patient.
When at home, she loves to spend her weekends either checking out the Oregon vineyards or curled up with a good book, two cats, a dog, and a warm cup of tea.
