Our Skilled Team
Lindsey was born and raised here in Milwaukie, where she developed an early interest in the well-being of animals. From a young age, Lindsey frequently told her family that she wanted to be a “vegetarian” (veterinarian) when she grew up and she has diligently pursued a career in the veterinary field ever since. Lindsey has worked in emergency, general, and alternative medicine including herbs, acupuncture, and rehabilitation therapy but her true passion is in strengthening the human-animal bond through client and paraprofessional education and fear free veterinary visits for our patients. In her free time, Lindsey enjoys spending time with her fur-kids, camping, hiking, gardening, and cooking.
Lead Client Care Specialist & Veterinary Diet Inventory ManagerJessica grew up on a farm in Camas with her horse, 3 dogs, 2 cats, ducks, and chickens. Prior to going to Apollo College to become a veterinary assistant, she worked as both a nanny and a preschool teacher. Both of these positions helped Jessica develop her gentle touch, which is perfect for both our clients and our patients. Jessica also has great problem-solving skills, is detail-oriented, and she’s fantastic at trouble-shooting. She has been a member of the Gladstone Vet Clinic team since 2009. Jessica occasionally splits her time between the front desk and the tech team, but her main focus is client care. She shares her home with her son Brayden, and two cats Grace and Louie. When she’s not working, she loves photography and cooking.

Angela grew up on the East Coast but has lived in Houston, Seattle, Chicago, and NYC. She has previously been a preschool teacher and jewelry designer. After years in the hospitality industry, she dreamed of more green space for her Indian street dog Idli to stretch her long legs, and she landed back in the Pacific Northwest 3 years ago. Angela also brought along her bodega cat Ali, Montreal alley cat Minou, and Pablo the three-legged wonder kitty. She has always dreamed of working in the animal care field and aspires to move into the clinical side of the veterinary practice.
Client Care SpecialistMegan joined our Client Care Team in 2017. She has always had an undeniable love for dogs. She started her career with animals in 2014 at a pet store, which led her to becoming a Certified Pet Training Instructor. Her most-loved companion is Henry, a basset hound who loves all the belly rubs and treats a dog could have. She came into our hospital in hopes to find her true passion and career goals before continuing her college education. Megan is extremely grateful to work at a vet hospital that has the same love for pets that she has.

Certified Veterinary Technician & Inventory ManagerMia was born and raised in Israel. The job that made her begin her veterinary path was an assistant job in a large veterinary hospital in Israel. She had no prior experience working with animals, but once she started, she realized that this was what she was meant to do.
In 2012, her little family (her husband Ran and her golden retriever Messi) relocated from Israel to San Francisco. During the 4 years she was there, she completed her Veterinary Technology degree at San Juan College, earning her Certified Veterinary Technician license. She worked as a veterinary technician at San Francisco Animal Care and Control. Even though it was very emotional work at times, dealing with abused or neglected animals, she loved working at the shelter, especially when she was able to treat wildlife: baby owls, raccoons, skunks, and even seagulls!
In 2016, Mia and her family relocated to Portland and she joined Gladstone Veterinary Clinic. They fell in love with the small town vibe and all of the beautiful nature that surrounds Portland. In her spare time, Mia enjoys watching movies, reading sci-fi and fantasy books, and spending quality time with her family (both 2-legged and 4-legged).
Jody grew up in Portland and lives with her sister and her 3 dogs in their Molalla home. She worked in the health insurance industry for 15 years before making a late-in-life career change in 2010. She graduated from the Carrington College Veterinary Assisting Program with a 4.0 in 2011 and has worked for general practice and specialty hospitals prior to joining Gladstone Veterinary Clinic. Jody loves all animals, but dogs are her heart animal. She is very interested in the human-animal bond, focusing on assisting owners facing the loss of their beloved pets. In her free time, she enjoys dining out and visiting local brewpubs, going to movies with friends, cuddling up with the dogs and watching a movie at home, or spending time with her adult son who lives close by.
Mickayla completed an externship with Gladstone Veterinary Clinic during her Veterinary Assisting program at Carrington College and we never let her leave. She shares her home with her terrier mix Rowdy and her cats Oreo, Muffin, and Monroe. Her favorite pastimes include playing with animals, shopping, and coloring! Mickayla would live with elephants if that were a possibility. Don’t be afraid to ask Mickayla a question—she’s always happy to help.
Veterinary AssistantTess grew up in Lake Oswego with her English Setter, Tanner, and 4 cats. Her love and passion to be the voice for animals are what drew her to veterinary medicine. She is working towards becoming a Certified Veterinary Technician in the near future.

Her two loves are her orange tabby littermates, Toulouse and Flynn.

She recently got married, and she and her husband moved up to Portland where he is finishing his Master’s Degree at PSU.

She shares her home with her husband Gabriel, their two dogs Piper and Molly, their cat Sterling, and a corn snake named Cornelius. They also have a horse named Miaa.
Stacy has always been compassionate about all critters. She joined Gladstone Veterinary Clinic in 2018 and she enjoys continuing to learn about veterinary medicine and is always willing to lend a hand when needed. She recently graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelors degree in Art Practices. In her free time, Stacy loves to paint, play volleyball, sleep, and, like a true born-and-raised Oregonian, she is always up for a hike with her furry companion Lucy.
Chief Feline Officer
Bosco came to Gladstone Vet Clinic with a urinary obstruction and was surrendered to us in 2009. He won our hearts with his outgoing and vocal personality, and we realized he was here to stay. He has taken on the role of CFO (chief feline officer). He spends his days supervising our practice manager, attending meetings, and he is always on the lookout for snacks. He also enjoys napping with team members during their lunch breaks. On occasion, he is asked to lend a paw in demonstrating how to administer oral medications or subcutaneous fluids, a favor for which he is richly rewarded.
Director of FunJuneBug is a basset hound-shar pei mix (long body, short legs, and a bunch of extra skin) who was rescued off the streets of Northern California. As Dr. ten Broeke’s personal assistant, she comes to work every day and cannot wait to greet all of her co-workers each morning. When days become stressful or sad, she is always ready to give a consoling hug, or participate in a game of “stretchy-face” or fetch. “Throw the ball! It will make you feel better!” She is also “certified” in acupressure, and is convinced that having her 65-lb body sitting on you will bring you joy and peace, and it’s true.
