Dr. Horner is originally from San Jose, California and in 2008 graduated from the University of California Davis, with a B.S. in Biological Sciences. Since childhood, she had a deep connection to animals.

In 2015, she graduated from Oregon State University’s Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine. She continued her post-graduate training by completing a small animal rotating internship at New England Animal Medical Center in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Throughout veterinary school and her first internship, she developed a strong interest in internal medicine and decided to complete an additional year of specialty training in this field.

She enjoys developing lasting relationships with her clients and their pets and is excited to serve the Vancouver community!
