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.
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.
She is a mom of three boys whom she loves very much. She is excited to be here at Hillsboro Veterinary and looks forward to meeting and making new furry friends
Erin was born and raised in the Hillsboro area and has always had an affinity for animals. After completing her observation hours at the clinic in preparation for the veterinary technician program at Portland community college, she was asked to stay as a veterinary assistant. Since then, she has received extensive training in laboratory diagnostics, surgical assisting, inventory management, and many other facets of veterinary practice. She is loving being a veterinary technician student and will graduate with the class of 2018. In her spare time, Erin enjoys watching comedy TV shows, hiking, camping, playing video games, and attempting to keep her sassy rabbit and mustache-clad cat out of trouble.
Alyssa started at Hillsboro Veterinary Clinic in June of 2016 in hopes of getting experience working at a veterinary clinic. She has always had a love for animals and wants to be able to help them feel better however she can. She is seeking a career as a Veterinary Technician, and will be applying to the program at Portland Community College for next fall. She has experience raising dogs, guinea pigs, rats, and fish, and currently has two dogs and four guinea pigs–the newest of which she met and adopted while working at the clinic.
Megan was born in Portland Oregon and is currently attending DePaul University in Chicago Illinois; she is studying Information Assurance, Security and Engineering for computers. Two years ago Megan came to the clinic as a part timer, with the intention of working as a technician, but eventually switched to helping manage the clinic’s inventory and data.
She loves to play with animals, especially big dogs, cats and various small creatures. She can be very inquisitive at times, asking random questions, tells jokes and spouting various facts (especially historical ones). During her spare time she likes to read and write, solve puzzles and snuggle with her long haired rag-doll cat, Tommy.
