Dr. Rae Hamblin grew up in the Seattle area and studied biological sciences at The Evergreen State College in Olympia. She received her DVM from the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2017. Dr. Hamblin was drawn to veterinary medicine by the diversity of challenges in the field, and the opportunity to both work with animals and develop close relationships with their humans. She has a special interest in feline medicine. Dr. Hamblin is thrilled to live in a small community so close to salt water and the forest, in an area with such a wide variety of outdoor recreation. In her free time Dr. Hamblin enjoys hiking, backpacking, cooking and playing piano. She lives in Sequim with her Australian shepherd mix Luka and her three kitties Kazul, Brigan, and Saturday.
