Dr. Chris is a native of Washington. She received her Bachelor’s degree (Animal Science ‘97) and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (2000) from Washington State University, and is still a big Coug fan. She works as a relief veterinarian all over Washington State, but tends to call the Summitview Cowiche Veterinary Clinic her home or main site of practice. Her outside interests focus on family, traveling, Logger Sports Competitions, gardening and home improvement projects. She also donates time to the Raptor House Rehab Center, helping their injured wildlife. She has two cats, and a three legged dog at home.
