Dr Baxter graduated from Oregon State University in 1998.  Although she spent most of her life around horses and aspired to work with them after graduation, she found that her heart was in caring for dogs and cats.  After working in small animal practices north of Seattle, she purchased Northgate Veterinary Clinic in 2003.  Professionally, she is committed to continuing education.  “Medicine is advancing so quickly that without dedication to education, it would be impossible to stay up-to date on vital information”. 

Her special interests include geriatric/senior care, skin disease, pain management, laser therapy and dentistry.
