Kerri Jackson, DVM
doctor of veterinary medicine
Born in Fairbanks, Alaska, Kerri Jackson was the youngest of six siblings and the only girl… needless to say she was greatly protected by her mother and spoiled rotten.
Life was good. The family also included several dogs and cats. At one point, 12 dogs occupied the house – nine were St. Bernards.
Interest in veterinary medicine as a profession seemed to be a natural choice at a very young age. In 1983, Kerri began her undergraduate studies at Oregon State University. In 1991, she graduated and began working at Pacific Veterinary Hospital, where she worked for 8 years. During the winter of 1998, Kerri left Pacific to start her own business with Kent Smith.
Kent has since retired and Natalie Mair-Williamson is now her partner. Kerri is very excited about the clinic and looks forward to the clinic’s goal of providing our clients with personal service and quality medicine.
