Karissa joined Value Pet Clinic - Tacoma as a Veterinary Assistant in January of 2014. She pursued her career by graduating from Pima Medical Institute in 2013. Ever since, she has enjoyed showing the care and affection every pet deserves working in small animal practices. Karissa’s favorite part of being a member of our veterinary team is assisting with surgeries.
In her free time, Karissa enjoys adventuring outdoors (camping/hiking), spending time with her pets, Kona (Labrador), Zara, and Suki (cats), and going to baseball/hockey games.
