Dr. Walkush moved here from the Midwest and loves everything the PNW has to offer. She studied Animal Science at the University of Wisconsin River Falls and worked as a licensed veterinary technician before advancing to veterinary school. She studied vet medicine abroad on St. Kitts at Ross University and did her clinical year at the Royal Vet College in London, England.
After graduation, Jamie did a small animal internship for extra training and mentorship in general practice, emergency medicine, and soft tissue surgery. She then moved out to Washington and has been working in both general practice and emergency ever since.
Jamie studied acupuncture at Chi University and is excited to learn more about holistic medicine. Her interests include palliative care, integrative medicine, management of chronic pain, soft tissue surgery, and wound care.
In her free time, Jamie enjoys volunteering and works to bring veterinary care to underserved populations. She also is an avid hiker and backpacker and enjoys gardening, travel, photography, kayaking, and cooking. She shares her home with the best dogs in the world!
