Veterinary medicine has always held a place in my heart because it allows me to not only help animals, but strengthen the bond between pets and their human family members. Being a veterinarian means providing support for clients during the stressful times of having a sick pet, and through the exciting times of adding a new furry member to the family. Creating bonds not only with my patients, but with the people who love them most brings me great joy.
I am new to the state of Washington and have lived in Indiana for the majority of my life. I attended DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana for my bachelor’s degree. I then moved to the island of Grenada to attend St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine. From there, I completed my clinical training at The Ohio State University.
I have a strong interest in preventative medicine, dermatology, feline medicine, and behavior. I am certified in both Low Stress Handling and Fear Free medicine which allows me to improve the often scary veterinary experience for your pet by creating a more comfortable environment. A visit to the veterinarian does not have to be a fearful experience. My aim is to reduce stress for both you and your pet when they visit.
Grenada left me with a sense of adventure and love for the outdoors – which ultimately brought me to the Pacific Northwest. Outside of hiking, camping, and sailing, I thoroughly enjoy cooking, film photography, and have recently taken up watercolor painting. I have two wonderful cats named Ceviche and Merlot and we are all beyond excited to be a part of the team at Cascade Pet Hospital!
I graduated as a licensed veterinary technician from the Danish Veterinary Medicine School back in Denmark in 2014 after 3.5 years worth of education and working as a student at two different animal hospitals, emergency & specialty and general practice hereafter. I got to work as a tech for about 5 years before moving to America.
I have had the great pleasure of working for Cascade Pet Hospital since June 2016, being the manager since September 2019 and I can’t imagine finding a better job, hospital or colleagues!
I moved to the States at the end of May 2016 and I’m living with my Husband and our Pitbull, Loki north of Shoreline.
When I’m not working you’ll find me out and about, discovering the great state of WA and all it has in store. I’m already very much in love with everything this amazing place has to offer.
Working with and around animals is something I’ve always dreamed about since I was little. I finally decided to go ahead and make that dream into a reality and enrolled at Pima Medical Institute back in late December of 2018.
Nine months later and I have completed the VTA program and started my journey here at Cascade Pet Hospital. Both have been such a great and wonderful experience. Living out my dream and helping other people and their pets is something I will always hold close to my heart.
As of right now, I’m happy where I’m at with my studies and with the people who I’m working with. I intend to eventually continue my education at Pima and study to become a licensed veterinary technician.
Animals and animal welfare have been passions of mine for as long as I can remember. I was lucky enough to grow up with three dogs and a forest for a backyard, both of which I believe played a major role in who I am today. In the past seven years I have been able to turn my passion into more than that by studying biology and animal medicine in an educational setting, volunteering at shelters and at a wildlife rehabilitation center, and now in the work that I do at Cascade Pet Hospital.
Considering where I am now, it would be surprising to most that I started my undergraduate years at the University of Washington as a pre-business major. This is what my father wanted my siblings and I to do. As we all entered our freshman year together, we began on the same path. However, we are all going in completely different directions now. My sister is completing a master’s in elementary education, while my brother has a job doing digital marketing for a company in downtown Seattle. Then here I am, about to complete a master’s degree in conservation biology and working in veterinary medicine. It has been truly amazing to do what I love while also being able to make my father proud, despite not following in his footsteps.
One bachelor’s degree in environmental studies, conservation expedition to Brazil, and veterinary assistant program later, I am happy to say that I have truly found myself. I have learned who I am on my own which, as a triplet, proved difficult. This unique field has allowed me to challenge myself and was the first step for me in becoming independent of my siblings. I have learned so much while pursuing veterinary medicine and will take what I have learned with me every step of the way as I prepare for the next big step in my life.

Raychael has been passionate about animals her entire life, coming from a family that placed a big emphasis on animal kindness.
Working with animals is one of the best decisions she’s made and hasn’t regretted it for an instant. She believes that animals can bring out the best in people, as well as be there for you during difficult times.
Originally from Michigan, Raychael is begrudgingly allowed to share an apartment with three great cats: Ripley, Annie, and Willow. In her free time, she enjoys Dungeons & Dragons, cheesy 80s movies, and curling up with a good book.
I’ve been around animals my whole life growing up on 100+ acres of farmland in Kansas. I grew up taking care of farm animals including peacocks, dogs, cats, and so many more! With that, I developed a deep love for the well being of any and all animals.
I worked as a makeup artist for over 7 years until I moved to Washington and decided to make a whole career change doing what I love most – taking care of animals.
I spend my free time living and exploring Seattle with my husband, Ricky, and my cat Mr. Felix.
