Born in sunny Florida and raised in Southern California, it’s surprising that Dr. Spikerman has ended up in rainy Washington state—but she came here to earn her DVM from Washington State University and has decided to stay.
Initially Dr. Spikerman wanted to be a teacher like her mom, but then realized helping animals was more to her liking than the prospect of spending the day with a room full of human kids. She does enjoy working with our client families, however, and her favorite part of the job is helping them find the best and most effective treatment plan for their pets.
While she does love dogs and had them growing up, Dr. Spikerman will admit to being more of a cat person and has two felines of her own at home (as well as two ball pythons!). When she’s not helping patients, she loves playing computer games of all kinds.
