Hi everyone! I'm Niki and I own Valley Pet Services.
My boys (ages 23 & 15) and I relocated to the Snoqualmie Valley from Montana in 2013 to be closer to family and to Bellevue College/University of Washington.
I graduated from PIMA-Seattle's Veterinary Assistant Program in May of 2014 and while I loved what I was learning, once I got out into the field the actual hands-on work left me unsatisfied and overwhelmed. There were FAR too many euthanasia procedures for my heart to handle. I desperately wanted to work with animals but not in the way a brick and mortar veterinary practice provides.
I was very fortunate as not one, but two perfect employment opportunities presented themselves over the next 2 years. I worked as the Office Manager for Dr. Robert Hogan, DVM., from April of 2015 to July of 2017. I was also fortunate enough to work as an assistant manager at Pooch Play, LLC. (an off leash dog socialization group) from October 2015 through June of 2017.
The wagging tails and peace of mind I am able to provide to other animal lovers and pet parents in my own community is a dream come true. I am a firm believer that it’s never “just a dog” and it’s never “just a walk”. Our pets are members of our families and in being able to care for them I have found the excitement, joy and fulfillment I was always seeking in a career.
It is my honor to provide Snoqualmie Valley pet parents with exceptionally high quality pet care combined with phenomenal customer service!
