We’re thrilled to welcome three new veterinarians to the team at Atlantic Veterinary Hospital: Dr. Kayla Cline, Dr. Ashley Bucklin, and Dr. Xuân Mai Võ.
Dr. Kayla Cline
Dr. Kayla Cline has joined us all the way from her sunny home state of Florida. Dr. Cline grew up in Daytona Beach, where she always dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. After she helped raise some baby squirrels displaced from a hurricane, she was hooked!
She graduated from the University of Florida in 2014 with a B.S. in Animal Science and was a member of their Equestrian Team. She earned her DVM from the University of Florida.
During vet school Dr. Cline developed a love for internal medicine, shelter medicine, and pain management.
Dr. Cline is ecstatic about getting to experience and explore the Pacific Northwest, away from alligators, hurricanes, and hordes of mosquitos. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, trying new foods/drinks, fish-keeping, and spending time with her husband, her rescue dog, Echo, and two cats, Tortilla and Jackson.
Dr. Ashley Bucklin
Dr. Ashley Bucklin grew up in Bellevue, WA and then moved to Massachusetts to attend Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine outside of Boston.
Her special interests include surgery, dentistry, and canine behavior.
In her free time she can be found trail running with her golden retriever, Nala, a “career-change” service dog who was just too excited about other dogs to keep her cool.
Dr. Xuân Mai Võ, DVM, CVA, CVPP
Relief Veterinarian and Pain Specialist
Dr. Xuân Mai Võ is our relief veterinarian. Recently hailing from the East Coast, she came to Washington for the mountains, which remind her of her native Switzerland.
Dr. Vo graduated from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine. She has earned additional professional certifications in veterinary acupuncture and pain management.
Dr.Vo has worked in both clinical practice and as a professor in academia. Her professional passions are cats, adventure pets, pain management, anatomy, and public health. She maintains a deep commitment to improving the quality of life in animals and supporting the bond between them and their families.
