Abby Willms and Brooke Jacoby DVM first met years ago while working together in a small holistic veterinary practice. Discovering a shared passion for integrative veterinary care, the idea of starting a practice together grew over the years and they finally decided to make the jump! They could not be more excited to start this venture in our beautiful community.

She is passionate about creating a comprehensive health plan for her patients utilizing a variety of modalities.

Abby started her career in veterinary medicine in 2001 while completing her undergraduate degree at Portland State University. After becoming certified as a Veterinary Technician she spent the majority of her nursing days as a surgery and dentistry technician. Her many talents include blood draws, surgical assistance and keeping our staff well trained and accountable!

Dr. Laura Veals is delighted to join the Elevate Pet Wellness Center team and support pets through all stages of life! In 2014, she graduated with her DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine) degree and immediately became passionate about treating her patients with acupuncture.

Her wide range of interests include peri-operative conditions such as Stifle (knee) Disease, Osteoarthritis in senior pets, Vestibular Disease, and Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD).
When not treating patients, you’ll find Dr. Laura hiking and camping with her dog, Ryna, or snuggling with her tripod senior cat, Trio. Dr. Laura has a variety of interests outside veterinary medicine, including voiceover acting, aerial dance (Lyra hoop), standup paddle boarding, and traveling the globe in search of adventure!
