Meet Our Team

Carol Hurn D.V.M., Veterinarian, Medical Director (Fear Free Certified Professional)

I was born in Moses Lake, Washington, and grew up in a military family that moved quite a bit, attending high school in northern Maine, and college at Purdue University in Indiana. After graduating, I took a few years working at various jobs (surgery lab technician, record store clerk, high school chemistry teacher) before deciding to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian. I focused on preventive care, medicine and surgery at Ohio State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Small animal dentistry became one of my biggest areas of interest while working at a family practice for 12 years in Columbus, Ohio.

In 2009, my stepdaughter moved to Chicago to attend SAIC and my husband and I relocated to Portland. We had visited Oregon and were drawn by the vibrant arts, music and food scene, proximity to the ocean and mountains, friendly people and the active lifestyle. 



 Jennifer, Client Care Representative

I was born and raised in Portland and have had a love of animals my whole life. My first best friends were my cat Silverstreak and my grandparents pug Anastasia. Growing up we had cats, dogs, gerbils, fish and even a snake at one time. My love of animals led me to the veterinary field. In 1999 I started work in a dual general and specialty practice. I love the human-animal bond, helping  pets and their families is a real passion of mine. I want every client and pet that comes in have the best possible experience. I am excited to be part of the City Pets Vet team, continuing to grow and fulfill that passion everyday. 

In my free time I enjoy spending  time with friends, reading, photography and baking. I enjoy the beach, exploring Oregon and traveling . My family includes my husband, and two sons. Dachshund/Yorkie mix Loki,  Chihuahua mix Sophie, Siamese cat Louis, two hamsters and fish.


Whitney, Client Care Representative / Veterinary Assistant  

My name is Whitney. I am a Portland native born and raised!  I started working in Vet Med Autumn of 2017.   I am so excited to work with City Pets Vet.  It feels like an incredible environment. It feels like Kismet. I live for my dogs Oliver (Border Collie/Siberian Husky mix) and Piper (Doberman/American Staffordshire terrier mix).  When I'm not spoiling my pups I'm probably spoiling my niece and Godsons.   I  love all things Disney and Outlander. I am so excited to see what my future has in store for me here at City Pets Vet. 

 Jen, Veterinary Assistant

I am English, but worked abroad, and travelled around Southeast Asia for 5 years before moving to Portland in 2013. Rescuing Nicademus, my cat, from The Republic of Korea, was the reason I got into this profession. He mostly sleeps but likes to sing to my husband and I at 3 am! Those of you with cats can appreciate this. I also have a former barn cat, Ophelia, who makes a lot of noise and destruction  for something so small. I would love a dog but my kitties wouldn’t!  I love hiking, camping, and soccer, and neighborhood clean ups. I have a passion for upcycling. 
I enjoy being a part of the City Pets team and sharing the highs and lows of your pets health with you.

Taylor, Veterinary Assistant - 

Born and raised on the Oregon coast in 1990, my mother was a veterinarian and my father trained and bred field-bred Springer and Cocker Spaniels. Some of my earliest memories are in a whelping bed with puppies. After my dad passed from cancer in 2000 I did my best to pitch in, and spent a great deal of informal time at my mother's clinic. In 2013 I joined the practice as an assistant officially and worked there for 9 years, working on dogs, cats, and horses, from routine to emergency.

I finally felt comfortable with moving on in early 2022, and came to Portland for a change of pace.
In my spare time I enjoy cycling, photography, and learning more about anything that catches my interest.

Read What Our Clients Say

I love these guys! I was referred to them by my usual vet when they were completely booked and I was in a jam to get my sick kitty checked out before I left town. City Pets Vet worked me in immediately, gave my kitty great care, were very reasonable on pricing (did not ever try to upsell me on services or products), and were SO friendly to deal with. I will definitely go back! I have every confidence in their services.
