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.
