Cheryl grew up with her parents and three brothers in Detroit and Traverse City, Michigan. On her way home from kindergarten she found a kitten, convinced her family to adopt it, then decided quite at once she was going to be a veterinarian. Her goals, dedication and love for animals never wavered. Twenty-one years later she graduated from Michigan State University, College of Veterinary Medicine, considering it a privilege and a dream come true.
Cheryl has practiced veterinary medicine in Michigan, Alaska, and Seattle for over twenty years. She has filled in at many clinics around the Seattle area as a relief veterinarian, which is how she met her business partner Annie. Her main priority is forming trusting relationships with owners and patients, so that they love coming to the vet. Cheryl lives with her husband Carl and two spoiled cats Nugget and Baby Kitty. In her spare time she enjoys all things outdoors including running, biking, hiking and snowboarding. She has neutered a porcupine, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, and made freezer jam, but not all at the same time.
Dr. Annie Dittrich
Growing up in Anchorage, Alaska, Annie was fascinated with all creatures from an early age, whether it was the bull moose or black bear who wandered into her yard, or the three dogs she grew up chasing around. It’s no wonder she ended up becoming a veterinarian. After experimenting with art and literature in college, Annie returned to her calling and attended Washington State University for veterinary school where she met her husband, Conrad. They moved to Seattle and are raising two human children, a dog named Earl and a cat named Ron.
Annie has been practicing veterinary medicine in Seattle for the past fifteen years. Her most rewarding work comes from her client-patient-doctor relationships and the unique opportunity to be her patients’ doctor for their entire lives. Outside the office, Annie likes to be outdoors and explore new places- backpacking in the Cascades, camping on a sheep farm in Patagonia, and traversing across Italy; she is game to go anywhere. Her bucket list includes visiting Ecuador, Iceland, Japan, and more of British Columbia.
Dr. Marie Andresen
Marie grew up in Issaquah with her parents and two sisters. She has always had a strong love for animals, interest in science, and desire to help others, so veterinary medicine was a perfect fit. Marie completed her undergraduate education at Washington State University, studying Zoology and Spanish, and even spent a semester in Granada, Spain. She continued on to veterinary school at WSU and graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in May 2022.
Within veterinary medicine, Marie is especially interested in soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, behavior, and keeping appointments fun with treats and low-stress handling. She previously raised puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind, and her favorite appointments are new puppy appointments since she is passionate about helping set puppies up for success.
In her free time, Marie enjoys hiking, camping, playing the ukulele, and trying new restaurants. She and her partner, Josh, are looking forward to getting married this September. They have the sweetest Labrador Retriever named Teller, who Marie originally raised to be a Guide Dog, but was medically career changed and is now a professional cuddler!
