Allison studied literature at the University of Puget Sound before pursuing Veterinary Medicine in Seattle and relocating to the amazing, eccentric East Side of Portland. She and her dog Bjorn can regularly be found in side-by-side downward dog or traipsing through the woods with matching backpacks. When she’s not at work, treating your pets like her own, she is assuredly knitting and reading a book at a cafe somewhere nearby.
Kaye has been a vet assistant since the age of 18. For the last 3 years she has worked on perfecting her skills in the trade and enjoys the learning opportunities that she is presented with every day.

Samie or “master of all things” as she is called here, does, in fact, do all the things. If you think she looks familiar, maybe you’ve seen her around the stages of the Portland area theatre. She is an actor, set designer, painter and a musician. She also spends her days working as a painter’s assistant, composing music, and being the obsessive mom of our clinic cat.You may ask “what is she not the master of”? Basic math! She has been with us since 2014, and is a Kansas transplant.
Jackie has been at Goose Hollow Vet since September 2016, and came to us with over 10 years of veterinary reception experience.
