Meet Our Team

Dr. Ivy Engstrom grew up on a cattle ranch in Nevada. She met Dr. Ross at Washington State University where they both pursued the same passions. They have 5 wonderful children. Dr. Engstrom has been in private practice for over 30 years.



Dr. Ross Engstrom joined the team in 2019, also having over 30 years of experience as a veterinarian.



Candi is our receptionist extraordinaire.  Candi has worked for a Valley Animal Hospital since Sept of 2011.  She is originally from Bainbridge Island and has lived in the pacific northwest for most of her life.  She is the voice on the phone and has an excellent memory.  Like everyone here, she is crazy about the animals!


April met Dr. Engstrom through church. She is a compassionate and loyal woman and has been apart of the team for 7 years. April also loves people and crocheting!


Carina came to A Valley Animal Hospital as an intern and became part of the team in 2019. She is a calm and intelligent woman that we value. She continues to work toward becoming a Licensed Veterinarian Technician (LVT).



Rose started as a client of Dr. Engstrom. This inspired her to become an LVT and come to work for A Valley Animal Hospital. Her talents, experience, and compassion have been of great value.



Amy came to us as a student and has continued to work with us. She is here every Tuesday at A Valley Animal Hospital and is one of the best, positive dog trainers out there!
