Licensed Veterinary Technician

Jamie is one of our Licensed Veterinary Technicians (LVT), working in the hospital/surgical area as well as in the exam rooms. She has lived in Washington her whole life, growing up with a plethora of cats, some mice, fish and a stray dog that hung around for a month. Horseback riding being one of Jamie’s favorite activities when she was young, she worked as a stable hand in Snohomish and helped with the pony program at Farrel McWhirter Park. In high school, she attended Sno-Isle Vocational School, taking their Veterinary Assisting and Grooming course. Jamie always knew she wanted to work with animals, but wasn’t sure in what field.

Being interested in medicine, Jamie applied at various veterinary hospitals around the Monroe and Woodinville areas and was fortunate to land a position at Cottage Lake Veterinary Hospital. Jamie started her career at Cottage Lake Veterinary Hospital in 1996 as a receptionist, working her way up to assistant, and then earning her technician license in 2002. She is a self-declared ‘dental nerd’ and will be starting a 2-year program to become specialized in dentistry in January of 2013. She also has an interest in animal behavior and pain management.

Jamie shares her life with Joey and her son Nathan, as well as Cammie, an Australian Shepherd mix, Lady, a miniature long-haired dachshund, Jack, a domestic long-haired cat, Fluffy, a domestic long-haired cat, Ernie, a North American three-toed box turtle, and Ursula, a Russian tortoise. In her free time, Jamie enjoys hiking, camping, backpacking, dancing (swing dancing and flash mobs), photography, reading, riding her bike and watching ‘B’ movies.

Veterinary Receptionist

Todd has been with Cottage Lake Vet for 11 years, and is the glue that holds the reception area together! He’s a client favorite, and a friend to all of the dogs and cats that come in the door. Prior to his good work here at the hospital, he worked on a Dude Ranch in Wyoming. Todd enjoys good movies (and bad movies!) and video game time with friends and road trips – though admittedly it’s been a while since his last road trip adventure to San Diego!



We’re happy Erin joined the Cottage Lake Vet staff in September of 2016. She and her husband have several fur-babies, including a dog named Pizza Roll, and a cat named Gator Mama. She’s a talented artist, painter and can create amazing balloon creatures!

Justin has been a member of our care team since May of 2014.  He is a recent graduate of the PIMA Veterinary Assistant program, and has been a great addition to our team.

Veterinary Receptionist

My name is Chandler, I have three dogs and two felines that I love more than anything. In my spare time I love to explore the Pacific Northwest with my partner of eight years and the pups. One of my favorite places to be is up in the mountains! I enjoy hiking, camping and traveling to new places. Within the next few months I plan to go back to school to become a Veterinary Technician. I hope to be with Cottage Lake Veterinary Hospital for a long time.
