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!
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!
Client Service Coordinators
Ashton joined our hard working reception team in July of 2019. She enjoys the fast-paced nature of this position and works hard to make sure each patient receives the excellent care he or she deserves. Ashton loves animals of all sizes including working dogs (e.g. Heelers, Australian Shepherds, and Corgis) and horses (specifically thoroughbreds, quarter horses, and paints). When Ashton is not focused on patient care at Woodside, she is likely barrel racing, reading, or taking pictures. She’s also one of the fantastic contributors to our Facebook Page!
We have a few individuals that help to keep the hospital running smoothly and clean while tending to patient needs and providing our patients with the best comfort while they are under our care. Our dedicated Kennel Attendants are a crucial component in delivering the quality medicine and care your pet deserves. We would like to acknowledge our wonderful team who work tirelessly behind the scenes for our patients. Thank you Bobbie, Jake, Jordan, and Gabriel for all your hard-work!
