Jami McLaughlin, Practice Manager

Jami has a natural Zen like approach to life, which makes her the perfect veterinary practice manager. She promotes a client/patient centered environment and facilitates programs and processes that meet our clients’ needs.

She is certified in fear free veterinary approaches and practices and utilizes it to provide a calming and loving influence on our patients every day. As the perfect team manager, she listens patiently, she sees all sides of each situation and is full of encouragement and inspiration.

Jami came to us after working as a veterinary assistant for Columbia City Veterinary Hospital in Seattle. Her dedication and commitment to helping animals and people alike resulted in her promotion to Practice Manager at Vashon 4 Paws Veterinary Clinic within her first 2 months at the clinic.

She continues to work as a veterinary assistant and customer service specialist as well as taking on the huge responsibility of managing the practice. She conducts interviews for employees, manages Payroll, marketing, sets financial goals and studies daily and monthly financial projections and results, resolves staff issues and makes sure that our hospital is maintained at the highest cleanliness standards and is welcoming to our clients and patients.

In her spare time, she enjoys family time with her wonderful husband, beloved 3 children (including twins!) and 6-year-old Aussie companion, Roper (who comes to work and entertains Honu at times).

She loves chilly fall days, going to the Ballet, hiking, Mariners games and anything involving music- she has a degree in Music. She would never turn down good pumpkin pie or tofu teriyaki from Kinza restaurant. We feel blessed every day we see her smiling face at work.
