She attended Washington State University for her undergraduate degree which she obtained in 2011, as well as her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree which she obtained in 2015 (Go Cougs!). Her interests in medicine include diagnostic imaging, feline medicine, and preventative care. Dr. Ronngren enjoy outside activities like hiking, biking, spending time with family, and running with her golden retriever Jasper. She is an avid sports fanatic, and also loves traveling and cooking when she’s not busy at the clinic!

Kim Hineline, D.V.M.

Dr. Kim Hineline joined us in July of 2014 after practicing for three years in Bellevue.  A graduate of Washington State University, Dr. Hineline obtained her undergraduate degree in 2007 and followed up with a doctorate in veterinary medicine in 2011.  She has a special interest in geriatric medicine, with endocrinology holding a unique appeal.  Her own brood consists of three chocolate labs – Lilley, Hazel, and Lola – and three kitties – Maddie, Colby, and Jack.  When not working with animals, Dr. Hineline enjoys any activity that takes place outside in the sunshine.  When the weather is less than thrilling, she spends her time in the kitchen, trying out new recipes (which we, hint-hint, wouldn’t mind taste-testing for her!).  Along with her great sense of humor, Dr. Hineline has an obvious passion for veterinary medicine that we here at WAH couldn’t appreciate more!

Veterinary Technicians

Nani CuelhoRuiz

Nani joined us in March of 2014, and we’re so happy to have her!  Born and raised in Seattle, Nani graduated from the Pima Medical Institute in 2010.  Even at a young age, she knew that her future lay in the field of veterinary medicine.  Her love of animals expands to include three of her very own: Tyson (a dachshund), Riley (a corgi) and Gordon (a pitbull).  When not snuggling her three pups she enjoys yoga, traveling, music, reading, and spending time with her boyfriend.  Unabashedly vivacious, Nani brings a positive energy to the clinic and dives into her work with passion and enthusiasm.

Meghan Cloyd

Meghan started her career with WAH in July 2014 – although she’s far from new to the veterinary world!  She has over six years of experience in the clinic setting and received her degree in veterinary technology from Pierce Community College in 2012.  Her own pack includes two lovable chihuahua mixes, Elliot and Panda, and one cat, Fiona.  A Pacific Northwest native, Meghan loves to hike and spends as much time outdoors as she can.  She adores thrift stores and has quite the extensive record collection.  (And really – how cool is that?!)  Meghan brings with her a gentle, calming presence that she graciously extends to the clinic and our patients.  We just couldn’t be happier to have her around!

Veterinary Assistants

Christina Newton

A product of our own local high school system, Chris graduated from Bothell High. She has been an assistant on our staff since 2010. Chris greatly enjoys all the cases that we see, both “routine” and not-so-routine. Chris belongs to “Claire,” an acknowledged “couch potato” when not masquerading as an American Staffordshire terrier/borzoi mixed breed dog. Chris enjoys her family, viewing Animal Planet, and watching Claire interact with her young niece and nephew. Chris does not enjoy finding the cap left off of the tube of toothpaste…

Amy Slater

Amy joined our clan in July of 2015 and has proven to be a perfect addition to the WAH family!  With three years of veterinary assisting under her belt coupled with her soothing, empathetic nature, the level of care she provides for both our patients and clients is of the highest quality.  In addition to her amazing skills here at the clinic, Amy is a super-talented artist (check out her website: and enjoys painting and drawing in her spare time.  As if that doesn’t make her multi-talented enough, she can also keep a hula hoop going almost indefinitely (how envious are you now?), rocks at yoga, and is a big fan of reading anything by Terry Pratchett.  She has three cats of her own – Sprite, Maurie, and Feegle.  Amy’s enthusiasm for her work is contagious, and we’ve all caught a bit of her fever!

Client Service Representatives

Bobbie Stout

Bobbie joined the staff at Woodinville Animal Hospital in September of 2013, but she has been working in the veterinary field since 2004.  A fervent animal lover, she has two cats of her own- Pickle and Chubs.  Bobbie is a transplant from Southern California and while she loves the lush green of the Pacific Northwest, she misses the dry, warm weather down south and visits the area often.  She loves traveling, camping, reading (memoirs and biographies are her favorites) and absolutely adores a good burrito.  (Who doesn’t, right?!)  Bobbie has been a great addition to the front office, and she considers herself lucky to be able to couple her love of animals with her work.

Lisa Sorbe

Lisa started with Woodinville Animal Hospital in the summer of 2007 and , after three fun-filled years, took a brief sabbatical in which she attended college and pursued her photography interests.  She rejoined the team in the fall of 2012 and been enjoying her time back with the clinic ever since.  Originally from Iowa, Lisa lived briefly in Minnesota before following her husband to the beautiful Pacific Northwest several years ago.  When not traipsing around the Pacific Northwest hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking, or camping, Lisa prefers to stay hunkered down in front of the fireplace with a good book and a hot mug of tea.  Currently, she is attending school to receive her degree in Business Technology and Global Studies.  Lisa belongs to Lindy, a lab/shepherd puppy that she adopted in July, and has been thoroughly exhilarated and exhausted since!

Kennel Technician

Claire Kavulu

Our Kennel Technician, Claire, keeps our practice sweet and our employees well-fed.  Aside from keeping the clinic squeaky clean, she is phenomenal in the kitchen – where her love of baking produces delicious treats such as cake pops (our favorites!), cookies, cupcakes, and brownies.  Claire graduated from Woodinville High School in 2015 and she has her sights set on pursing a degree in welding.  To top off her wide array of talents, Claire is also fluent in Japanese and volunteers at Homeward Pet.  She enjoys spending time with her dog, a Border Collie mix named Domo, and the two often indulge in long walks together around Woodinville.
