Dr. Cynthia Sorrick grew up in California and moved to Colorado to earn her undergraduate degree in Biology at Colorado College. Along the way she worked with animals in a wide variety of ways from riding horses to studying wildlife ecology in Tanzania. She also developed a strong passion for the outdoors and conservation.
After college she lived in Iowa for 6 years where she earned her doctor of veterinary medicine degree at Iowa State University. Upon graduating in 2015, she left the midwest for California to complete an internship in general practice and emergency medicine, after which she remained to work in the San Diego county for the next several years. While living in San Diego, Dr. Sorrick renewed her passion for outdoor pursuits, including international trips to climb in Europe, Canada, and Mexico. She also acquired an abandoned kitten named "Oofta", who came home with her one night and never left!
Dr. Sorrick is excited for new adventures exploring Portland and the mountainous Pacific Northwest. Most importantly, she looks forward to meeting you and caring for all of your fur family starting this May!
