About the Cat Clinic of Seattle

Our Medical Philosophy
Your cat deserves the best. This is the simple principle of the Cat Clinic of Seattle. Your pet will receive all the benefits of our technologically advanced facility, a cats-only environment, and a caring, experienced staff. We’re all cat-lovers and it shows.

Our Standards
The Cat Clinic holds a place of honor within American Animal Hospital Association and the veterinary profession. Only 14% of the veterinary practices throughout the United States and Canada have made the commitment to voluntarily participate in an on-site evaluation based on the highest standards in veterinary medicine. The Cat Clinic is evaluated every three years on over 800 standards, proving a strong desire to provide high quality medicine and topnotch client service. We are proud to have been an accredited member now since 1981.

After the graduation, she worked several years in the healthcare industry before deciding to pursue veterinary medicine. She earned her veterinary degree from teh Royal Veterinary College in England. Upon her return to the United States, she discovered the Pacific Northwest where she adopted a dog and a cat, fell in love, and started a family. She has experience in preventative healthcare, dentistry, emergency and internal medicine. She is proud to call the Cat Clinic of Seattle home and cannot wait to meet you and your kitty family.

She graduated from veterinary college at Murdoch University, Western Australia in 2013.  She has worked in small animal practice in Australia, wildlife and small animal medicine in Belize and feline only practice in the US.
