Kara

CVT

Kara grew up in Albuquerque, NM and moved to Nashville, TN in 2010. She missed having family close by and decided to move to Vancouver in May 2019 to be closer to her brother and his family. Orchard Hills Animal Hospital came highly recommended by multiple people, and she feels lucky to have found an amazing hospital to be a part of (her words, not ours!). Kara attended Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque and attained her associates degree in Veterinary Technology in 2007. Becoming a Licensed Veterinary Technician is one of the things in her life she is truly proud of. She has worked in an animal hospital since 2001 and says that working with animals is her passion. Kara shares her home with her dog, Willow, who she found in a bush back in 2012 when she was five weeks old and she’s been by Kara’s side ever since. Willow enjoys going on adventures with Kara here in the Pacific Northwest and is named after Willow, AK. because Kara was in Willow working with the Iditarod dogs around the time she was born. When Kara isn’t helping animals at OHAH, she enjoys being outdoors: Hiking trails, kayaking lakes or camping up in the mountains. She and Willow both love being out in nature!
