Dr. Petri grew up in the Arizona heat and has wanted to be a veterinarian since she was a little girl. Growing up, her love for her family pets nurtured a deeply rooted compassion for animals and respect for the bond between owners and their pets. After graduating high school in
Arizona, she went to college at Saint Martin’s University in Lacey, Washington, where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. She then attended veterinary school at Oregon State University, where she obtained her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. In veterinary school, she
developed a passion for diagnostic imaging, feline medicine, and surgery.
When not in the office, Dr. Petri is likely to be spending time with her family and three adopted cats- Zette, Kope, and Kleo. On a sunny day, she could just as easily be found at the beach or a local plant store.
