Suzy has been an employee since 1990 at the Deer Park Veterinary Clinic. She began as a large animal assistant and has worked in all positions at the clinic. Suzy was raised in Republic, WA. with cattle, horses, dogs, and cats as a major part of her life: her upbringing is an asset to her job. She also earned an AA degree at SFCC. She is very proud of her three sons (Shannon, Laddigo, and Coby) and their families. Her husband Mel raises rodeo bulls. Her leisure time is spent pleasure riding, camping and caring for her horses.

Suzy has 7 cats-all adopted from DPVC. She has an Australian Shepherd named Roy Rogers, and two Lab/Chesapeake's named Beau and Rancher. 2 of her 3 dogs have been obtained through the clinic. "I've always enjoyed working at DPVC. The connection shared with animals through my entire life has been rewarding and fulfilling, so working in a veterinary environment fits my life-style. Mostly working with wonderful doctors with integrity and a great staff makes this a perfect place to work!"

Amy - Registered Veterinary Technician
Licensed Veterinary Technician

I am a licensed technician here at Deer Park Veterinary Clinic. I've been here since 1997 and have enjoyed my time her working with great staff and excellent doctors. If I had to choose any profession to work in, I'm glad its this one! Every day is so challenging and different. I work mostly in small animal treatment and surgery but like to get out to the barn and help too.

I have two daughters Haley 13 and Paige 11. I keep very busy with them doing sports and rodeo. My husband Rod and I enjoy camping, being outdoors and traveling with our kids. We have many animals ranging from cats, dogs, chickens, goats and horses! See ya at the clinic!

Treatment Team Lead / Licensed Veterinary Technician

My name is Amanda. I have bee at DPVC since 1996. I began through a high school work program then attended Eastern Wyoming College's veterinary technician program where I received my AAS in veterinary technology. I became a licensed technician in 2000. In my free time I love to team rope and spend time with my husband, Coby, and our 4 dogs; Tweeder, Jackson, Jeb and Kreo.


I have been working at DPVC since March of 2002. This is the most interesting job I've ever had. I love seeing the pets and their owners that come in to the clinic and being a very small part of their care. My husband John and I have two sons, Steve and Danny. Our family enjoys boating, camping, fishing, and hunting. I have four horses, three dogs, and .....8 assorted cats, including several adoptee's brought home from the clinic! Working at DPVC has definitely added to my pet population! I attended Chico State (Chico, CA), and I graduated from Shasta Jr. College in Redding, CA. I love spending time with my horses, and enjoy trail riding and dressage. When I can find time, I also like to read and do needlework. See you at the clinic!

Lesli Jo
Team Leader Reception

I'm here in the front reception most days, to meet and greet you and your pet. On my off days I enjoy my pets and my small city home. My grandchildren keep me running. Growing up I've always loved animals even the helpless and hurting. t's a pleasure to serve you and the needs for your pet!


A client of DPVC since 1992, I became a team member in December 2002. My husband, Brian, and I have 6 children, 5 grandchildren, 2 dogs, 3 cats, a bunny, a BLM mustang horse, and a flock of chickens. We enjoy the great outdoors, fishing, and touring on our motorcycle. What a continued blessing it is to work for these doctors who understand integrity and choose to serve our community! They were also very supportive of my decision to spend (2) weeks in Kenya on a mission trip in the Spring of 2012.

Veterinary Assistant/Phone

Hi there! I am happy to have joined the team at DPVC in the summer of 2003! I have lived in Deer Park for 7 years with my 12 year old son and our various animals (horses, cats, dogs, rabbits and bird). I had worked in N. Spokane at a small animal practice for the last 7 years and prior to that, up on the South Hill for 6 years. We enjoy pleasure riding, camping, fishing, and our animals.

Camp Waggin' Tails Director / Roaming Assistant

I have been a member of the DPVC family since December of 2003. I began working in the kennel but now work in all aspects of the clinic including exam rooms, reception, large animal and treatment. My love of animals began at a young age, growing up with dogs, cats and horses. When I'm not here at the clinic you would probably find me at the lake fishing with my husband, Josh and daughter, Josee or on a trail ride. I enjoy spending time on our farm with my family and pets.




I joined the DPVC team in August of 2001. What a great place to work for and be a part of! I consider my work place my second family! I grew up on a farm in the Deer Park area, and have always had animals in my life. I live west of Deer Park on 20 acres with my husband, Shayne - who works as a firefighter and a paramedic, and our two sons, Colton and DAlton. We have many critters and enjoy breeding and raising our Quarter Horses. In our spare time we enjoy watching our sons play sports, 4-wheeling, farming, barrel-racing and just enjoying the country life. See ya soon!

Ronda - Relief Veterinary Assistant
Relief Veterinary Assistant

I am a transplant from Ohio via Texas. Ronda and her pink poodleAs a child, I worked with animals in a lot of jobs. My first job was with a breeder, as kennel help. I went to dog shows with my boss and learned a lot about different breeds and how to show them. I worked with a veterinarian and saw the downside of raising dogs. Now I am a retired firefighter and enjoy raising and showing Standard Poodles in conformation and obedience. My husband and I also have horses, a trout pond, and cows. Our small ranch always has something going but I still find time to work part-time. I love all my jobs and don't plan on giving them up real soon!

Camp Waggin' Tails / Roaming Assistant

I am a veterinary assistant here at DPVC and hoping to become a licensed technician this summer. I have worked here since 2007 after graduating high school, and I love being a part of this team. I obtained a B.S. in Biology from Eastern Washington University. Last summer I got married to my best friend Tyler and at home we have our three dogs; Jude, Gary, and Louie, and our two cats; Jess and Doug. I enjoy trail riding, dog agility, hiking, and spending time with friends and family.
