Brenda Goudy - Veterinary Assistant/Receptionist
Brenda has a passion for animals and has been working with them since she was young. She started volunteering at the Blue Mountain Humane Society in Walla Walla, WA when she was 12 yrs old. When she turned 18 yrs old she started working there full time. After a year she became the kennel manager and started medical training under a local veterinarian for certification. She worked at BMHS for 8 yrs implementing foster programs, fund raisers, and an adoption program thru the Humane Society thrift store as well. She left the animal world for a few years while her husband was in school and worked as a waitress for Elmers. Then moved to the Seattle area, where waitress positions are alot easier to find then vet positions so she started at Dennys in Federal Way and in Auburn. But she jumped at the chance to return to her work with animals when a position opened for Dr. Bob who she trusts with her beloved, 4 legged family members.
In her spare time she loves being outdoors with her 3 children and her husband fishing, hiking, camping, and swimming. She also loves playing ball with her husky mix Mabry and snuggling on the couch for a movie with her munchkin cat Storm.
