Meet our caring Administrative Staff


We are so fortunate to have a team of caring, friendly faces at our front desk

and supporting the clinic behind the scenes!

They truly keep our day flowing well and work hard to make

sure your visit is a great one.

Christie L. - Hospital Manager

After spending more than 11 years as the Hospital Administrator for a local 24-hour emergency and specialty practice, Christie joined Woodhaven in 2013. Having worked in the greater Seattle community for most of her veterinary career, Christie was aware of Woodhaven and its quality of medicine and was thrilled when this position became available, as serving the staff and the local community in what she loves to do. 


In her spare time Christie enjoys spending time with her husband Kevin, senior pups Tito and Chewy, Melly the vocal cat, Herbie the box turtle, Leslie Knope the gerbil, Bob the Betta and his tetra friends and a very spoiled colony of hermit crabs! 


Jae H. - Client Service Manager

After moving to WA, Jae honed their veterinary client service skills at a local practice, before starting at Woodhaven in the Spring of 2022. They bring strong service skills and animal knowledge to a busy position. We are so thrilled to have Jae on the team! 


Melissa M. - Client Service Shift Lead

Melissa joined WVC in 2019, after spending a number of years living in Florida and working as a veterinary assistant. She has a strong interest in medicine and business. You will see her splitting her time between the medical team and the front desk team, learning about all aspects of a veterinary clinic. When not at work she is usually studying and spending time with her family and fantastic pups!

After relocating to Washington from New York, Jodie joined Woodhaven in 2012. She brought with her experience from a busy veterinary practice in upstate New York. When Jodie is not at Woodhaven she enjoys cooking new dishes with her husband and daughter. She is also one of the best bakers in the building!


Kaytlynn . - Client Service

Kaytlynn joined WVC in 2020, after honing her client service skills at another local practice. She was excited to join a larger practice and work in a bigger team. She is married, has a beautiful daughter and a cat named Sif, as in the wife of Thor. 


Her favorite color is yellow (which matches her sunny personality!), and her interests include baking and watching true crime documentaries. If you ever ask her about anything true crime related, you'd be talking for hours. Growing up she have always had pets; from rats to hamsters, cats to dogs, she loved them all. She wants you to know she LOVES what she does in client service and is so happy she has found her forever career. 


Naomi W. - Client Service

After working in the child care industry for more than 20 years, Naomi was seeking a new challenge and was very excited to join WVC in 2020. She looks forward to learning about veterinary medicine and seeing the pets on a daily basis. Outside of work she spends her time with a loving husband, daughter and pup!


Nelda Y. - Client Service

Nelda joined Woodhaven in 2018, after many years in banking and service industries. Her compassion and care for others drew her to veterinary medicine. She is enjoying getting to see Woodhaven from the "other side of the desk" and getting to know the wonderful clients and patients.
