Vanessa always had a passion for animals. When she was younger she always wanted to be a vet! Instead, she went to school for music and theater, but that love and passion never went away. She loves being able to advocate for her patients as they themselves do not have a voice. It’s fulfilling for her to be their voice and help them get the best possible care. She joined Pleasant Hill Animal Hospital in August of 2021. When Pleasant Hill merged with West Eugene, she was happy to follow. She enjoys the fast-pace environment of veterinary medicine, the awesome clients and patients that come to West Eugene Animal Hospital, and her co-workers, all of whom are friendly and always willing to help her learn new things!
She shares her home with her Husband, Peter (He/Him), whom she married in 2019. They then moved to the area in October of 2019. They share 3 dogs, Chuckers, a blue healer beagle mix, Charlie, a black mouth cur mix and Rocko, a dachshund mix. All rescues! In her free time she enjoys being outside in nature, dancing, singing, crafting, woodworking, playing video games, and plants!
