Allison Richardson Veterinary Assistant/coordinator – Oncology

As a PNW native, I enjoy everything that this area has to offer. From soaking up the sun on the paddle board or curled up with the furry family listening to the rain falling outside, it all sounds good to me! For as long as I can remember, there have always been animals in my life and I’m sure that it was no surprise to my family when I chose a career working with them.

I completed my certification in Veterinary Assisting at Apollo College in 2009 and I am currently pursuing my Veterinary Technician license through Penn Foster. My career in veterinary medicine started with large animals, and then switched to small animals while working at the Humane Society for Southwest Washington (where I made it out with only one failed foster!). In 2012, I switched to private practice and eventually found my calling in a specialty hospital, working in the Oncology department. I love spending time getting to know my patients, earning their trust and building relationships with their human family members.

My furry family members include, 2 spoiled cats, 1 horse, a pesky yet oh so adorable goat, and a honorary canine nephew, Bear! Outside of work, I enjoy finding new places to drop the paddle board in the water and spending time with family and friends.
