Meet Our Veterinary Team
Carol joined La Pine Animal hospital in 1992, where she has been professionally grooming since 1975. She has been a well-known breeder of Airedales, Norwich Terries, and Lakeland Terriers. Over the years, Carol has raised many AKC champion bloodlines and currently breeds and raises Norwich Terriers. She says the breed either keeps her sane or drives her crazy, but she loves them regardless.
Christina has lived in La Pine for 25 years, where she and her husband raised their three children. They now have 4 grandchildren. Her love for animals drew her to a career in the veterinary field. Christina rejoined the practice in June of 2021, with 17 years of experience.
Outside of her family, Christina’s other passions include 4-H, which she has volunteered in various positions for the past 20 years, along with the Oregon High School Equestrian Team (OHSET) for the past 15 years. She has two cats, two dogs, horses, and goats. She enjoys spending her free time with her family and out on the trail and camping.
