Robin also loves to spend time with her family, especially her seven grandkids. She has a small farm consisting of four dogs, three cats and six horses.

Marissa is one of our two Licensed Veterinary Technicians. She joined our team in 2013 and ensures that the doctors have any instruments they may need during surgical procedures and is also responsible for the monitoring of critical care patients and patients recovering from anesthesia. Marissa graduated from PMI in 2013 and also received her Livestock Master Education through WSU.
Marissa volunteers with the Stanwood FFA, local 4-H groups and a campfire club. She enjoys time spent with family and friends and it only gets better if you can throw in a country music concert!!! She has several pets at home including Dalton (horse), Phigaro (cat), Clairece (dog) and Becky (Jersey cow)
Growing up, Marissa was always surrounded by a variety of critters from turtles to cows and during her formative years, had shown animals in FFA and 4-H. Nothing brings her more satisfaction than being able to help other peoples' pets in need.
Kimi joined us in May 2014 after having completed an internship at Northwest Veterinary Clinic through the PIMA Medical Institute. She received her certification as a veterinary assistant in 2014 and we are proud to welcome her as our newest licensed veterinary technician by successfully passing the national examination in 2017. Her primary interests include animal nutrition as it relates to veterinary medicine and how it affects the overall health of your pet.
As a student, Kimi always enjoyed science and helping animals in need which helped steer her career choices. As things turned out, being a veterinary assistant seemed like a perfect way to combine those two loves. Kimi has an upbeat personality and likes to keep busy - always looking for something to do - making her a valued member of our team.
In her spare time, Kimi enjoys reading and hiking or swimming with her miniature Dachshund, Duncan. She also enjoys the company of her young Tortoiseshell cat named Sophie who doesn’t go swimming with her and Duncan.
