Cornelia (Conny) Wagner, Dr. med. vet., CVAconny1
clinic owner

I grew up in a small town in Thuringia, Germany and received my veterinary degree from the University of Leipzig in 1996. I have been working in private practice since my move to Portland 15 years ago. I strongly believe in the integration of Eastern and Western Medicine, guided by compassion, communication, and appropriate diagnostics in order to achieve the best possible outcome for my patients. I am certified in veterinary acupuncture and continue my training in veterinary herbal medicine and food therapy. I also integrate homeopathy, aromatherapy, Bach Flowers, and TTouch into my holistic care.

I love spending time with family & friends, traveling, playing guitar, hiking, and gardening.

I grew up in Northern B.C. before moving down to the Pacific Northwest. My love for animals has been life long and I have worked in the veterinary field for over 11 years. My passion and goal is exceptional customer care and I believe I have found my niche with Hawthorne Veterinary Clinic.

I love anything to do with the outdoors and spending time with family and friends and Oregon craft beer.

Carolyn Clintoncarolyn-and-eli
certified veterinary technician

I received my education and training in veterinary technology from Portland Community College, and have been working as a certified veterinary technician since 2009. My interest and passion for helping people with their companion animals continues to bloom with my involvement at Hawthorne Veterinary Clinic. I love meeting and caring for the variety of animals and their guardians that come through our door every day, and take pride in providing everyone with the attention and compassion they deserve.

When I am not at the clinic, I love being active outside with hiking and biking excursions, and spending time with my partner Andrew.

lisaLisa H Lin, BVMS
certified veterinary technician

I am a veterinarian by training, currently preparing for the national veterinary licensing board exam. I was raised in Taiwan, Saipan, Texas and New York. My career and volunteer work has taken me to many parts of the world including Madagascar, Thailand, New Zealand, Ethiopia, Ireland, Scotland, England, and most recently Nepal. My colorful journey entailed chasing diurnal and nocturnal lemurs in the rain forests of Madagascar, to neutering homeless dogs and cats in Thailand for population control, to improving animal welfare conditions of donkeys and mules (the people’s livelihood) in Bahadir, Ethiopia. I received my BVMS from the University of Glasgow, Scotland and I am a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons since 2010. After practicing conventional veterinary medicine in the UK, I returned stateside to further my studies with the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine based in Florida, where I honed in on my acupuncture skills in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal and neurological disorders.
I am an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys sport climbing at Smith Rock, mountaineering, snowboarding and volunteer world travel.

Erika Villada-Figueroa
veterinary assistant

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon I have graduated from Benson HS and received a certification in veterinary assisting from Carrington College. Recently starting my journey here at Hawthorne Veterinary Clinic, I am excited to meet all the clients and their four-legged companions. My passion for animals began at the age of 3 when first traveling to Mexico to visit family. Every trip was always heartbreaking, I could never fathom or understand why there were so many strays and saw very few animals that had homes. Seeing the reality for these animals drove me to want to pursue a career in the veterinary field. I love animals and truly feel my purpose in life is to help heal and educate pet guardians to help their companions live healthy lives.

I love spending time with my family, eating a lot of food,  listening to music and going hiking.
