Licensed Veterinary Technicians
Licensed Technician at Woodside since 2015
Indy values both the medical and emotional side of her profession, and readily drops everything to make sure pets are seen with an empathetic hand. She graduated from Pierce College as a licensed Veterinary Technician in 2015, but has worked at Woodside Animal Hospital since 2013 (she began as a volunteer)! Indy has always believed working with animals and being a nurse is the perfect career for her. As a technician, Indy enjoys hematology (the study of blood) and can be found either in our lab or assisting our doctors during dental procedures. In her personal time, Indy can’t be kept away from the great outdoors—she even gets in her Jeep and comes to work when Port Orchard shuts down during snowstorms!
Indy also oversees our Instagram page.
Jessica is the medical professional that eats, breathes, and lives to be a technician. Woodside was fortunate to bring Jessica on staff in December 2018 while she was completing her degree at PIMA Institute. She graduated in April 2019 and has not stopped learning! Although she is currently focused on specializing in animal behavior training and is certified in Fear Free practices, she takes classes in any area available to her. As our Community Outreach Organizer, Jessica helps us engage with various Port Orchard events and remain an active part of the community we love! When Jessica isn’t helping in the surgery suite or supporting patients on their way to recovery, she enjoys spending time with her kids and fiancé, baking/cooking, and occasionally enjoying a glass of wine!
Kennel Attendant and Veterinary Assistant at Woodside since 2019
Client Service Coordinators
Nora has been focusing on client care as a receptionist since 2017. With a genuine and tender heart, clients and patients alike have found comfort in Nora’s support over the years. Wanting to expand her role at Woodside, and having a background in human medicine, Nora recently trained to become our laser therapy technician. She has far exceeded our expectations and many patients are healing much quicker with her help. Please call or email us if you would like to learn more about laser therapy.
Assistant Practice Manager at Woodside since 2018
Anna has been with Woodside since 2019. Originally a receptionist at Woodside, Anna wanted to interact with our patients more and has recently joined our kennel team. We are so glad she did! Our boarders love her! Anna has also agreed to oversee our new Tik Tok page!
