Dr. Olson

Dr. Olson is a long-time resident of Arizona, moving here from Minnesota when she was six. She attended Highland High School in Gilbert and then went to Northern Arizona University for college. At NAU she received a Bachelors in Environmental Sciences but realized she really wanted to works hands-on treating animals and changed her focus to veterinary medicine and has been on that path ever since. She is a 2005 Doctor of Veterinary Medicine graduate from Colorado State University and after completion moved back to Arizona and have been practicing here since then. Professional interested include internal medicine, dentistry, and feline medicine.

When not working, she loves playing her violin and singing in a musical group called Far From Home. Every spring she participates with the Arizona Renaissance Festival with Far From Home. She also enjoys reading, movies, and traveling (with a goal of visiting all continents someday). At home, she has four cats, Bouje, Jesse, Toaster, and Vincent. However, it is not unusual for one or two neighbor cats to be around the house looking for a snack or some extra scratches.


Practice Manager

Ashley was born and raised in Southern Oregon but moved to Arizona in 2017. Her career in Veterinary medicine started in 1999 where she began volunteering and became a kennel technician at a local hospital. In the past 22 years she has worked in general practice, emergency and alongside some of the most prestigious board-certified surgeons. One day she hopes to return to school and pursue a veterinary degree herself. When Ashley is not at the hospital, she can be found spending time at home with her 5 children and soon to be Husband Derrell. At home she has two terribly amazing pugs named Papi Chulo and Penelope, and one big old lady long haired cat named Lucy. For fun Ashley loves to go camping, spend time by the pool, road trip, and just relax and enjoy her family!
