Amy has worked at CMVH since 2007 and loves greeting all the furry faces that come in to see us. She can help just about anywhere in the hospital, but you will most often find her smiling face at the front desk. At home she has a cat named Jareth and a dog named Arrow. In her free time she enjoys reading, playing video games, and baking.

Veterinary Technicians


Danni joined our team in March 2012 when some of the staff from Cedar Hills Veterinary Clinic merged with our hospital. She has been working in the veterinary field since 1997.


Molly is a spunky gal who is always willing to help out around the hospital. At home she lives with her husband Paul and the spottiest dog to ever have spots, a Dalmatian named Bella!


Alexis grew up in Boulder, Colorado and moved to Oregon in 2018 to join the Cedar Mill Veterinary Team. She did her undergraduate at Colorado State University, then went on to study at Bel Rea Institute of Animal Technology to become a Certified Veterinarian Technician. Alexis does not have any pets of her own currently but has been a puppy raiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind for 10 years. In her free time she loves to do yoga, dance, ski, and be in the great outdoors.


Aaron is a former biology teacher, arborist, and furniture builder now pursuing an encore career in veterinary medicine. While not saving puppies here at Cedar Mill, he can be found puttering around his home orchard or slowly rehabilitating his 1926 bungalow in NE Portland.
