Office Manager

Hey, my name is Meagan. I have been in and around the veterinary field since I was ten. I was lucky enough to spend time with my father when he was in vet school.

I have worked here at Eastside Pet Clinic since I was fifteen. I started as a kennel attendant and made my way through receptionist and technician. I enjoy every aspect of the veterinary field.

When away from work I enjoy spending time outdoors, especially hiking. Even though it's just my husband, son and I, we have a full house with two dogs, two cats, a pet squirrel, and a bunch of fish.

Veterinary Technician

Hi, my name is Raquel. I have always loved animals and started working in clinics at the age of 15 in Houston, Texas. 

I began studying for my Bachelors in Veterinary Sciences and I lived with my time split between school in Idaho and home in Texas.

I eventually moved to Idaho after marrying my husband and I began working at Eastside Pet Clinic as a veterinary technician in July 2016. I have one dog and one cat, and am loving my job and life here in Idaho.

Cathy Olson
Certified Veterinary Technician

Hi, my name is Cathy. I dreamed of working in the veterinary field since I was a child growing up in Montana on a cattle ranch. 

That dream finally came true in 1999 when I graduated from Eastern Wyoming college as a Certified Veterinary Technician. 

After a few years of working in mixed animal practices I started working here at Eastside Pet Clinic in 2008. I really enjoy working with the variety of animals we treat here.

In my spare time my husband and I are avid trail riders on our Missouri Fox Trotters. I also enjoy spending as much time as possible with my grandchildren

Becky Hutchins
Veterinary Technician

Hello! I'm Becky, and I've been working here at Eastside since December of 2013. I love working here.

There is a fun variety of animals that walk, slither, or fly through the door, and the team is amazing!

I grew up in Shelley, and trained to be a Vet Tech in Ogden, UT. I have 3 kids, 3 cats, 4 dogs, and a bunch of fish.

When I'm not at work, I love to spend time with my family, go dog sledding with my Malamutes, and play outside – especially in the summer!
