Dr. Hicks grew up in Gig Harbor, in a diverse family of medical professionals and commercial fishermen. After her first trip to the family veterinarian at the age of 4, she knew she had found her calling. Her childhood passion for veterinary medicine compelled her to earn her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Tufts University. She joined the Chambers Creek Veterinary Hospital team in 2008.
Dr. Hicks treasures the love and companionship that pets offer. She helps pets and their families lead harmonious, healthy lives. She is an active member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and the American Veterinary Medical Association. She is a Certified Cat-Friendly Veterinarian and her special interests include feline internal medicine and behavior. Her passion to help cats around the world led to volunteering with SOS Dubrovnik Cats in Croatia and serving as a medical advisor for Ernesto's Sanctuary for Cats in Syria. Dr. Hicks delights in fostering kittens for Kindred Souls Foundation. Away from the office, she enjoys birdwatching, hosting dinner parties, and geeking out at Comicon and the Renaissance Faire. She and her husband, Eric, are proud pet parents of 5 cats (Yumi, Doppler, Jack Attack, Gandalf the Gray, and Deet).
