Interview the Bos with Dr Dana Ness

Tired of cranky clients who have a hair trigger on that 1 star review?

Want to work in a community that is accepting, welcoming, and cheers on the clinic when they reduce their on call hours?

We’re not joking, this place does exist, and it’s not in a Hallmark movie! Tired of cranky clients who have a hair trigger on that 1 star review?

Fair Isle Animal Clinic has two fabulous associates who are expecting at the same time, so your opportunity to move to and experience an independently owned practice that could be in a holiday movie is here!

Dr. Dana Ness graduated from UCD Vet School in 1997.  Her path was a little winding before vet school and continued being a bit twisty afterwards.  

She is a 5th generation Californian who emigrated to the Pacific Northwest, although she still speaks fluent “Dude.”  She has been a warehouse worker, a zookeeper, and a Lab Animal Veterinarian.  She pivoted into General Practice in 2004, moved to a fantastic island, and hasn’t looked back (except to miss the zoo camels). 

She never intended to own a veterinary practice, but by some strange wrinkle, she became a practice owner in 2013. She feels extremely grateful to have landed in a wonderful community, in a beautiful area, where she can lead her practice in its mission to serve the animals and people of Vashon Island. In her spare time, she loves being hassled by her various animals, reading, VR gaming, and playing D&D, with a bit of off-key karaoke thrown in for good measure.
