My name is Bre and I am basically a cat. Well, not really, but I am a super cat person and my love for animals inspired me to pursue work in the veterinary field, and I’ve been working with animals for 12 years. While working at Hearthwood Dog & Cat Clinic in Vancouver, WA (our sister clinic here in Vancouver) I earned the title of Cat Whisperer because of my ability to soothe even the most anxious of felines. I left North County Animal Hospital in 2016 to learn all about pet nutrition and work as a nutrition specialist, then later at an open canine boarding facility before returning to my roots where I get to continue my work with animals in the familial environment of a private veterinary practice here at North County Animal Hospital. When I’m not working with animals I can be found cuddling with my all black cat, Trevor, or sewing, or coloring, or even sometimes fire dancing.
Callie Jo has been a licensed technician for 10 years. She joined the North County team as lead technician in July 2018. What she most enjoys as an LVT is the endless learning opportunities that come with veterinary medicine. Callie Jo, her husband, two boys, and English bulldog live in Vancouver. She loves the Pacific Northwest for its proximity to both the coast and the mountain.
Chantalle was born with the love of animals and the environment. She always knew she would pursue a career in veterinary medicine. She would often attempt to save frogs and birds from her family pet cats and keep them in her room while trying to nurse them back to health (to the best of her 10-year-old ability). She grew up with pet lizards, hamsters, guinea pigs, ducks, chickens, dogs, and cats. For her birthdays she would ask for new pets, Zoobooks, and science experiment kits. Her favorite channel was Animal Planet and Steve Irwin was her childhood hero. She has recently finished her Bachelors of Environmental Science and Minor in Zoology at Washington State University Vancouver. She has been working at North County since August 2019 but has been a part of the veterinary medicine field for almost 5 years now. She hopes to continue her education and go back to school to become a licensed veterinary technician. In her free time, she enjoys going to Crossfit, hiking, adventuring to new breweries in Portland, and spending time with her fiancé Lance.”
