Christine C

Christine C

Licensed Veterinary Technician

Chrissie started her career at All Creatures Animal Hospital in 2012. Originally from southern California, she's transplanted herself around the western side of the United States, finally settling in the Pacific Northwest, where she enjoys the dark rainy chill of the region.

Chrissie enjoys the dark side in other aspects of her life as well. She has a love of horror movies and "all things noir". When not working with patients of All Creatures she is most likely at home caring for her small herd which consists of 8 cats, 4 dogs, and a very active toddler. You can most likely find her out at the park chasing said active toddler, reading a book, playing a board game with family, or watching the latest terrifying movie to haunt the local theaters.

While at work Chrissie enjoys helping with emergency care, aiding in surgery, or cuddling the older, crustier feline patients for which she holds a special fondness. She looks forward to furthering her career as a veterinary technician with All Creatures and all the interesting, challenging cases it has to offer!

Licensed Veterinary Technician

My name is Kaitlyn Jensen. I live in Gig Harbor, WA and have lived in the Puget Sound area for my entire life. I currently own 3 cats (Leilani, Kioni and Anastasia), 2 chinchillas (Loki and Little Icicle) and a Thoroughbred (Page's Own).

I have worked in the veterinary field since I was 16 years old and have always had a passion for working with and helping animals to the best of my ability. After graduating from my local community college, I made the decision to enter the Vet Tech program at Pierce College at the age of 18, and have enjoyed the life of an LVT ever since! I love my job here at All Creatures Animal Hospital as it provides me an incredibly unique opportunity to see and treat an incredibly wide range of rare and unusual species and breeds!

Outside of work, I love to spend time with my horse, Page, training in Dressage and giving lessons to young and new riders. Page is a little old these days to be jumping very much, but someday soon I hope to begin training in eventing!

Michelle B

Michelle B

Veterinary Receptionist

I was born and raised in Bremerton. I attended Clover Park Technical College and received my certificate of completion as a Health Unit Coordinator. I worked in "human" medicine for many years, at a local hospital, a home health agency, and finally a local health insurance company. I took quite a few years off and stayed at home to raise my beautiful children. When thinking about re-entering the workforce, I decided that a job in animal medicine would be an exciting switch for me. I have been at All Creatures Animal Hospital since 2011 and have loved every minute of it! In addition to our four awesome children and six grandchildren, my husband and I are parents to two amazing dogs, two Llamas, and one proud peacock.
