 Veterinary Assistants 


Diana has been a part of the Alpine team since August 2016. She moved here from a brief stay in Yakima, but originated from Menifee, California. She has been working as a veterinary assistant and manager in small animal and equine clinics for many years with a break in between to be a stay at home mom. She has had many pets throughout her life, but currently only has a long haired kitty named Odysseus that she often shaves like a dinosaur. When she is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her two children and husband who is currently attending WSU for his Chemical Engineering degree. She is an avid crocheter and sewer who plays guitar and watches a lot of football. GO PACK GO!! You can often she her with Dr. Merry on Cat's Night Out.

Karin moved to Potlatch from Montana and joined our team in the Summer of 2016. She has spent almost 10 years working as a Veterinary Assistant with both Large and Small Animals and 2 years working in an Emergency Clinic. She loves the outdoors and spends most of her free time floating and fly fishing on local rivers and lakes, driving her horse, "Norman", and hanging out with her cat and 2 dogs. She is an avid gardener and photographer and loves to go birding when she can. She is a 1997 graduate of Washington State University and is really enjoying being back in the Palouse.

Kaila graduated with her A.A.S. Veterinary Technology in 2014 at the College of Southern Idaho and B.S. Microbiology in 2016 from the University of Idaho. She loves that no matter how long you work in veterinary medicine there is always something new to learn and that no two days are the same. In her free time Kaila enjoys going for pack walks with her friends, skydiving, music festivals, and fostering tiny animals. Khai the 10 month old border collie, Zoey the 6 year old cocker spaniel, and Jaxson the 8 year old fluffy orange cat make her life complete.

Celena grew up in Buckley, WA, and moved to the Palouse from Bonney Lake six years ago.  She has worked in the veterinary field for a little over three years, and started at Alpine in the fall of 2014 to continue her education and passion for veterinary medicine.  Celena owns one cat named “Maddie”, but would love to own a dog in the near future.  She enjoys hunting excursions with her dad and brothers every year.  During her free time, Celena enjoys spending time with family and friends, or catching up on her favorite shows.                                

Alpine Animal Hospital welcomed Chris in July 2015 when he moved to the Palouse from Florida. Chris grew up on a small farm in Ft. Lauderdale, and was around animals from a young age. His father was a dog trainer and his mother rescued and cared for wild and exotic animals. To continue his strong passion for animals, Chris attended the Sanford Brown Institute in Veterinary Technology and became a Certified Veterinary Technician. In many ways, Chris can be compared to a Labrador Retriever because he is extremely food motivated. Since moving to the Palouse, he has been enjoying long hikes and meeting new people.
