Dr. West earned her degree from Washington State University in 2006. She also earned a B.S. in Zoology in 2001 from the University of Washington. Dr. West joined SVA from Animal Critical Care & Emergency Services where she served as an emergency veterinarian for six years. She also has a background in veterinary nursing, radiology and assisting. Prior to attending Washington State University, Dr. West worked for Dr. Donovan at our Northwest Veterinary Hospital as a veterinary assistant.
A favorite among staff for the care of their own pets, Dr. West is thorough, articulate, and compassionate. Her medical recommendations come from a place of experience and a thoughtfulness toward both the quality of life of the pet and maintaining the bond between pet and owner.
Dr. West is currently between pets but has two children who keep her very busy.
