Our Team

Susan Tomlisson, DVM

Veterinarian

Susan grew up locally in the Maple Valley area. After graduating as valedictorian from Tahoma High School, she earned her bachelor’s degree in biology and chemistry. She then headed to the United Kingdom to pursue her passion for veterinary science. Alongside her broad education, Susan has enjoyed exploring the world extensively, including Scandinavia, Western Europe, Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia, Japan and, of course, continues to have close ties with the United Kingdom. Having graduated from veterinary school in 2002 and living and working in England for two years, she returned to her hometown, not only with an English husband, but also with a wealth of experience. Susan has now been practicing veterinary medicine for 19 years and been lucky enough to partner with her long-time colleagues to create their dream practice. Outside of her veterinary career Susan keeps busy with her husband, three human children, two canine fur-babies and is an avid skier.

Heather Eibey, DVM

Veterinarian

Heather grew up in the Covington area, attending Kentlake High School. She graduated from Washington State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015. Susan and Heather have been working together since 2008. Heather grew up in the company of German Shepherds. Watching them succumb to the incurable disease, Degenerative Myelopathy ignited her lifelong dedication to veterinary medicine. She is passionate about soft tissue surgery, dentistry, and hospice/end of life care. Heather believes our older pets can have a high quality, pain-free lives and wants to partner with pet parents to achieve this. In her free time Heather is mom to two daughters, one golden retriever (Blitz) and two kitties (Dixie and Prancer). She enjoys running, spending time outdoors and football (Go Cougs!)

Ali Clark, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Ali Clark’s love of animals started very young. She decided she wanted to be a veterinarian at age seven. She spent her childhood surrounded by animals of all kinds. Cats, dogs, rats, frogs, geckos, bearded dragons, and snakes are just a few of the critters she took care of growing up. As a teenager, she developed a love of science, further cementing her path to becoming a veterinarian. She got her first job at a veterinary hospital at age 19 and obtained her bachelor’s degree in Zoology from WSU in 2004. She then went on to obtain her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from WSU in 2008. So, as you can see, Dr. Ali is a Cougar through and through, Go Cougs! Huskies beware, she might poke some fun at you, especially during football season. She loves internal medicine, dentistry, preventative medicine, geriatric medicine, and client education. Along the way, she was also a competitive gymnast for eight years during her pre-teen and teen years. Through her love of gymnastics, she discovered her love of teaching which developed into coaching recreational and competitive gymnastics intermittently over the past 20 years. Because of her love of coaching/teaching, she loves to teach anyone she works with about the things she knows and loves to teach her clients how to best take care of their pets. When Dr. Ali is not in the hospital, she loves spending time with her husband and young daughter outside exploring the State Parks in the area from the beaches to the mountains and everything in between. She loves Star Trek, action flicks, spy movies and books, all of the NCIS shows, and going to veterinary CE. When she is not snuggling critters here at the hospital, she loves snuggling with her furry and not-so furry family members including Spencer her old man pitty mix; three cats – Simon, Roxy, and Zelda, and Hoggle the cranky 22-year-old western hognose snake.

Cynthia Thomas, DVM (Starting July 18, 2022)

Veterinarian

Cindy grew up in the Seattle area and knew that she wanted to be a veterinarian from a young age. She worked as a veterinary assistant for several years in between college breaks to gain experience in the field. After graduating from WSU, she decided to spread her wings, and moved to the island of St. Kitts in the Caribbean, where she attended veterinary school at Ross University. After enjoying the warm island life and studies for 2 ½ years, she moved to the more frigid climate of St. Paul Minnesota, where she spent her last clinical year of veterinary medicine, graduating in 2004. A Washington native at heart, she returned to the Pacific Northwest and has been practicing veterinary medicine in the area since. Cindy enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, but particularly enjoys dentistry, dermatology, and preventative medicine. When not in the hospital, Cindy enjoys spending time with her husband and three children, and this coming year will have one in elementary, one in middle, and one in high school so there is never a dull moment! She is also pet parent to an 11-year-old rescued English Bulldog named Sully, and a former barn cat, called Prince Humphrey
