Kim is one of our full-time licensed technicians at our Kirkland location. She joined our team full time after having worked with us intermittently as a relief technician. She is incredibly experienced in veterinary medicine having been in the field for over 15 years now! Her favorite aspects of veterinary medicine are working directly with the patients and being able to make a sick or injured patient feel better. She loves helping to turn things around and seeing them go home happy. Besides ophthalmology, she has special interests (and experience) in surgery, critical care, and emergency medicine.
Kim has several pets of her own including Penguin, who is a darling Chihuahua and Rat Terrier mix, plus domestic medium hair cats Olive, Ike, and Hardy. Hardy is a rescue cat who was born with the unusual condition Pectus Excavatum (a congenital deformity of the thoracic wall).
