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.

Katie is a lifelong animal and music lover. She’s a classically trained musician, freelancing wherever life takes her, as well as a student in Purdue University’s Veterinary Nursing Distance Learning program. Her French horn has been her passport to living in and traveling to many reaches of the United States.
As an east coast native, Katie was born and raised in Pennsylvania. Her latest move to Seattle was for her husband’s PhD program and had the two taking turns at the wheel driving all the way from South Bend, IN with their two cats, Michi and Helo, and their dog, Ravi. Her special veterinary interests include animal behavior and cognition, and she is fluent in the Treats language.
Katie’s activities – that aren’t related to animals or music – include yoga, reading, candle making, listening to NPR, eating/cooking yummy foods, and traveling to her hometown of Pittsburgh at least once a year for family/friend time. Much of her current focus outside of work is on the recent family addition of their baby girl! Katie joined the Roosevelt Station Vet Care in November 2019.
