Dr. Feist joined the Fairwood family as one of our Associate Veterinarians in January of 2021. Dr. Feist did her undergraduate studies at Gonzaga University where she earned a Bachelors of Science in Biology. During that time, she had the privilege of playing on the Gonzaga Women's Soccer team, which also taught her invaluable lessons in teamwork, time management and work ethic. From there, she moved to Pullman, WA to complete her veterinary studies at Washington State University of Veterinary Medicine. When she is not working, her hobbies include soccer, camping, and hiking. Dr. Feist plays in a co-ed adult indoor and outdoor soccer league year round. She would also like to get into backpacking. Dr. Feist loves house projects - anything from paint to small construction and remodeling. Family is extremely important to Dr. Feist and she can never get enough family time. She comes from a family of 7 kids and they all love spending time together. Whether that's socializing over dinner, competing in cornhole, Nertz or Spikeball, or participating in TikTok challenges that they're probably too old to be attempting (her words, not ours!). No matter the scene, they always have a great time together. Dr. Feist shares a home in Deer Park with her husband, Ryan. They hope to expand their family soon with a Mastiff and a Great Dane! They have plans to expand their human family in the future, as well. Prior to veterinary school, she started in a small animal hospital as a Boarding Caregiver. She was new to the profession and trying to get her first "real" experience in the field. Over the course of a few months, she worked her way into a receptionist position. She got to know many families and their furry friends over the course of three years. After graduating from WSU VTH, she joined a busy small animal VCA hospital as an Associate Veterinarian. They served the community as an urgent care and general care provider. They worked long hours and were available 7 days a week. It was a steep learning curve but provided her with invaluable experience in surgery and advanced diagnostics. Dr. Feist has a soft spot for giant breed dogs. She also takes a personal interest in dermatology and nutrition. When asked what she likes most about working at FAH, Dr. Feist said, "My favorite think about FAH is our amazing team. My support staff makes work fun and they genuinely care. They strive to serve every single client. They advocate for each pet to overcome scheduling challenges or to simply make the visit less stressful. Most importantly to me, they work hard. No matter how many extra appointments we take, how late we stay, or the number of lunches they miss, they show up the next day ready to do it all over again. It shouldn't be so rigorous, but they endure and continue to make my job doable." We love Dr. Feist and are so grateful to have her on our team!
