Meet the Team
We are proud to uphold the high standard of care and reliability that Highline Veterinary Hospital has maintained throughout the years.
Dr. Shawna Wedde
Dr. Shawna Wedde is the proud owner of Highline Veterinary Hospital. She graduated from Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and has practiced in both Seattle and Tacoma. She is the loving momma of three fur-babies: two playful cats (MacDuff and Maurice) and one energetic labrador (Meda). You may find her at the beach or hiking the trails with Meda in the spring and summer. In the fall, she is likely in Pullman cheering on the Washington State University Cougars (Go Cougs!). In the winter, she is either snowboarding, touring local breweries or wineries, or hanging out indoors with MacDuff and Maurice.
I can’t remember when I first decided to be a veterinarian, but I think it was before I could walk. Pets have always been an integral part of my family, and I strive to treat each patient with the same love and care with which I want my pets to be treated. I genuinely enjoy getting to know my clients and working with them to provide tailored care for their pets. As a practice owner, I can lead a team that feels the way I do about our patients and our clients. I feel so thankful to be the new owner of Highline Veterinary Hospital and to be a part of this community. I am excited to meet you!
Dr. Patricia Greene
Dr. Patricia Greene is a 2018 graduate of the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. She is originally from Massachusetts but has lived in Washington state since 2018 and absolutely loves the west coast. She loves hiking, camping, trying new local beers, and her pets. She and her fiance Derek have 4 goons- 3 dogs and a bossy orange cat. Her dogs are Shelby (the most beautiful black labrador), Willie (a crazy but loveable Jack Russell terrier mix) and Happy (a devoted terrier mix), and the curmudgeon Milo orange tabby cat. Dr. Greene’s interests include internal medicine, dentistry, and ultrasonography. Dr. Greene’s favorite part of being a veterinarian is seeing the laughter and joy that pets bring to people. She can’t wait to meet you and your pets!
Get to know our staff!
Abby was raised in Washington and found her love for animals through fostering for her local humane society. After attending Washington State University, she decided to move to the Seattle area and join our team. When she’s not at the hospital, she is kept plenty busy by her cat and two dogs.
Auna was born and raised in Seattle. Since receiving her first puppy at eight years old, Auna has always had a passion for dogs. Now, at 21, Auna is an Auburn high school graduate, has three dog children of her own, and has decided to take the next step and join our team. When she is not taking care of clients and patients at the front desk, she spends time with friends and family.
Hali has been in veterinary medicine for more than four years, working alongside Dr. Wedde since entering the industry. She’s performed almost every job in a veterinary setting—from reception to emergency critical care triage—and is now one of Highline’s awesome Licensed Veterinary Technicians. She spends her free time volunteering for animal rescues and loving her own rescue babies, Harvey, Earnest, and Gypsum.
Samantha spent about a decade working for local newspapers and independent internet companies until she decided to let herself be pulled by the heartstrings into vet med. She grew up in Ohio, riding horses and fostering cats and kittens. However, Samantha moved to Seattle in 2015 to be near the mountains and the sea. She likes birding, reading, gardening, and fulfilling her two kitties’ demanding attention needs when she’s not helping out at the hospital.
Sherrie graduated from the Medical Institute of Minnesota in 1987. She worked in veterinary medicine as an assistant on and off for many years. Sherrie enjoys sharing her home with Julia, a mixed-breed dog rescued from Puerto Rico and an orange-and-white cat named Marmalade.
