It is with much enthusiasm that Dr. Trish rings
in 2013 by joining Berry Hill Veterinary Center.
Dr. Trish started her career as a veterinarian
working with companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife in a James
Herriot-esque practice in rural southern Oregon. She cherishes those small town
memories, the incredible adventures, and life altering experiences that laid
the foundation for the veterinarian she is today. Her second position was in a
busy small animal hospital in Olympia, Washington which was a period of
incredible growth. She obtained her Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapist
certification, allowing her to incorporate chiropractic care into her practice
regime and started her path into complimentary medicine. This was followed by
acupuncture training and integrating that modality into her practice offerings.
Now Dr. Trish is thrilled to be able to practice
alongside Dr. Penny who has similar beliefs, a strong western medicine
background beautifully meshed with holistic practices including nutrition,
acupuncture, herbs and supplements. She truly appreciates Berry Hill’s friendly
environment, caring staff, and fantastic clientele.
As a veterinarian, she loves discovering the best
opportunity for healing. Dr. Trish appreciates, respects, honors, and celebrates
the human animal bond. Her goal is to provide high quality veterinary care with
clear communication in each situation.
Dr. Trish’s family includes: her lovely partner
Lee, who is her motivation for her move to Portland, Lavinia the Siamese plus
sized model, Bert the best “Berter Collie” ever, Miss Qi Chihuahua a party in a
dress, Shylo Amble the Leopard Tortoise, Sylvia the feline matriarch, and
orange Oscar a perpetually surprised cat. Last but definitely not least, her
family includes Thor, a Percheron, who is so very handsome, gentle, kind and
When she is not practicing veterinary medicine Dr.
Trish hopes to explore the community, discovering places to do yoga, dance,
meditate, hike, eat, laugh and learn.
Dr. Trish looks forward to meeting you and your
family, whether you are a new client or have been part of the Berry Hill
community for years.
