Dr. Kim Jensen grew up in Whatcom County with a very earnest interest in everything animal, including a passion to become a veterinarian. Many years of exhibiting 4-H animals at county fairs, volunteering at the humane society and patrolling childhood neighborhoods for animals in need led to work as a veterinary assistant throughout her undergraduate education.
Kim graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (St. Kitts, West Indies) in 2003 and has since maintained a love of the international travel experience. Kim has worked as a small animal practitioner in Bellingham since earning her degree, including several shifts a month at Animal Emergency Care. Kim is the veterinary volunteer for Bellingham’s Project Homeless Connect and has been a coordinator of vaccine, spay, neuter and rehoming services for street populations of cats and dogs in the community of Marietta.
Dr. Jensen likes every aspect of veterinary medicine and particularly enjoys soft tissue surgery, emergency medicine, geriatric canine care, pocket pets and backyard chickens.
Kim looks forward to hiking guided by the family dogs, horse riding and gardening in spare time. Kim shares adventures at home and abroad with her partner, Trent, their daughters Samantha and Porter and a menagerie of too many rescue pets to name here including a guinea pig named Kenny.
