Meet the Clover Park team
Little miss Rosie came to us about seven years ago needing a home. Immediately she began taking over the practice and winning the hearts of each staff member. On any occasion, you might see Rosie drinking from the water faucets, sitting on countertops making sure the prescriptions are correct, sunning herself in exam room # 2, greeting your pet in the front office or her favorite activity of all, napping in the back break area. She knows every nook and cranny of our clinic so it’s only appropriate that she guides us through our website.
Dr. Tim Villm
Dr. Tim Villm was born and raised in Ogallala, Nebraska. He attended undergraduate studies at Colorado State University, and received his doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Iowa State University in 1987. Because Tim grew up in the Midwest, his first intentions were to become a large animal veterinarian. His first employment in Las Vegas, Nevada changed his emphasis to small animal medicine and surgery. His special interests include orthopedic surgery, exotic medicine and practice management. Olympia, Washington has been home to him now for the past 16 years. He has been married to his wife, Deb for 24 years. They have two daughters, Jessica and Ashley.
