Our Team

We are extremely proud of our dedicated team. Our team is filled with highly dedicated animal lovers who are well trained at their jobs. Learning and education are very important here at North Bend Animal Clinic. Our patients deserve the very best veterinary care. We make it a goal to treat each patient like our own. We give each patient plenty of love and attention. We are prepared to discuss preventative medicine so that every pet can stay as healthy as possible. We are welcoming some new faces, check back soon for their profiles!

KC Knudson, Lead Technician and Inventory Manager became a valued team member in 2010. KC brings energy and a swift efficiency to every task she encounters that we credit as a result from her time with the US Navy. KC works hard at assisting the doctors in surgery, performing dental cleanings and mentoring our new staff. KC manages the inventory for the clinic making sure what the doctors, staff, and clients need is always available. KC has a beautiful daughter that she spends time supporting her dance career with Ignite Dance and Yoga. KC and her husband spend time improving their home with many projects. She also enjoys hiking, the gym and gardening. KC’s household is ruled by two kitties, “Mittens” and “Spike” that keep the whole family on their toes.

Jeninne Nelson, Lead Technician/Shift Lead arrived at North Bend Animal Clinic in 2006 and has worked both at the front desk and in the back. Jeninne has a calm demeanor that soothes our nervous patients and is positive energy in any room she is in. Jeninne had worked at other clinics prior to North Bend Animal Clinic but chose to call us home and we are blessed she did! She works tirelessly to mentor and train incoming new staff and offers assistance wherever she is needed to the doctors and her co-workers. Jeninne and her husband live with a veritable zoo: 4 cats (“Max”, “Missie”, “Twosie” and “Zeke”), 2 dogs (“Gizmo” and “Gracie”) and 3 horses (“Jake”, “Maya” and “Ellie”) on a beautiful farm in Enumclaw.

Marissa McGuinness, Practice Manager/Technician came to us in 2017 after graduating with honors from PIMA Medical Institute with a Veterinary Assistant Certificate in 2016. Marissa shares her knowledge with the staff and our clients at the front desk and working with doctors and technicians. She brings a positive attitude and we are happy to have her on the team! Before working in veterinary medicine, Marissa was a Certified Nursing Assistant. Marissa’s future goals include going back to school to obtain her veterinary technician’s license. Marissa enjoys her dog, “Hawkeye” and her kitties, “Freya” and “Kasai”. Marissa is an avid reader and a hobbyist makeup artist.
