Traci grew up here in Redmond and graduated from Redmond High School. She attended Phagans’ Beauty College in Bend and was a cosmetologist for a number of years. She has also previously worked at another veterinary hospital in Central Oregon and discovered that working in the veterinary environment suits her perfectly. Traci joined our front office staff in February 2014 and enjoyed getting to know our clients and their pets. In September 2016, when an opening for Kennel Manager became available, she took on the position with her usual enthusiasm. She finds great satisfaction in being responsible for taking care of the needs of both our hospitalized animals and our boarders, making sure that each is as comfortable and as happy as possible when they are with us.

Traci and her husband Russell live in Redmond. They have three fabulous sons: Ryan, Austin and Tanner, and Traci’s animal family includes a black and white domestic short-haired cat named Tux.

When she is not working, Traci loves to go camping and fishing with her family.
