Kody Moore

Director of Clinical Operations

Kody was born and raised on the island of Guam, where her love for working with animals started in their family owned and operated exotic animal and horse rescue, which was located at the family home. In the Marianas, she learned to work with a variety of animals, ranging from monitor lizards to tigers at the on-site veterinary facility. At the age of 8, she got to watch her first surgery on a black-maned lion, and so her interest in medicine began!

Before graduating high school, Kody was back to working with animals at the Rio Grande zoo in Albuquerque, NM as a camel handler; but as soon as she turned 18, she turned her sights to emergency medicine and began working as an overnight assistant at the local specialty and emergency facility. Since then, Kody has been in the shoes of nearly every position and type of practice, from surgery assistant in general practice to client relations in specialty medicine. It was through client relations that Kody found her true calling in the field – leadership.

For Kody, leadership is not just a title, but a way of life. She believes that being a good leader means putting the team first, fostering a culture of respect, growth and kindness, and most importantly – leading by example. Whether she is mentoring a new team member or navigating a challenging new project, Kody is always striving to be the kind of leader that she herself would want to work for. Overall, she is committed to helping her team achieve their goals and reach their full potential!

Kody and her fiancé Katelyn live in Lake Stevens with their two dogs, Piper and Bernie, their cat Petrie, two frogs Uno and Dos, and their ever-multiplying number of chickens. In her free time, Kody enjoys playing her instruments, reading, art, video and board gaming.

This led to her wanting to work with animals full-time. She has since worked as a receptionist and assistant in both general practice and radiology, as well as having a pet-sitting business for over ten years.
 
In her spare time, Rachel loves to make yummy vegan treats, read, hike, and explore her town.
