Dr. Lindsay Wiser
Dr. Lindsay Wiser was raised with a love of animals that all began with her own childhood pets – a yellow lab and a black cat. She discovered her love of veterinary medicine as a kennel girl at the Oregon Humane Society and began her pursuit to become a veterinarian in college. She received a BS in Physiology from the University of Washington and went on to attend Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She received advanced training by completing a rotating internship at the Veterinary Specialty Center of Seattle and has been practicing in the Seattle area for the past 10+ years. Dr. Wiser worked with Dr. Serratore and the Normandy Animal Hospital staff helping Dr. Serratore work towards retirement and accepted the full time role of Principal Doctor/Medical Director at Normandy Animal Hospital upon Dr. Serratore’s official retirement. In her free time, Dr. Wiser enjoys spending time camping, doing DIY projects and spending time with her husband, three young daughters, Cavalier King Charles “Winnie” and grey tabby “Mittens”.
Dr. Tessa Barkley
Dr. Barkley (she/her) grew up in the small town of Yelm, Washington where her love of animals began. Over the years in her hometown, she spent hours volunteering in the local veterinary clinic, rehabbing wildlife, and going on farm calls. After graduating from Washington State University with a Bachelors in Zoology it was only natural that she would continue on to Veterinary School at WSU. Dr. Barkley graduated from the Washington State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. She has a strong interest in surgery and dentistry, internal medicine, wellness care, behavior, and rescue. In her spare time, Dr. Barkley enjoys spending time with her husband Nick, her two busy toddlers, her pups Juno and Pine, three kitties (Sage, Sushi, and Lolly), and a small flock of chickens.

Beth Weiner, LVT
Beth has been an animal lover for as long as she can remember and even turned her laundry room into her own veterinary clinic as a young child to treat her family pets and stuffed animals. Her parents even gave her a pygmy goat named Necessary growing up and together they won many Grand Champion 4-H ribbons at the King County Fair. She began her veterinary career at Normandy Animal Hospital in 2001 during her senior year of high school. She is a graduate of Pierce College’s Veterinary Technology program and earned her veterinary technician license in 2003. She continued working full time at Normandy while earning her AA and working towards a BA in Business Administration from Central Washington University. Her favorite part of veterinary medicine is when young pets come in, watching them grow and caring for them into their senior years. On her days off she enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, playing soccer, all things Seattle sports, and fostering old dogs, cats and any animal that needs care.
Whitney’s love for animals began when she was young. She always had a house full of animals growing up and a big sister who made a veterinary clinic in their laundry room, yes, her big sister is Beth! These years of watching her sister, made her want to help animals and give them the lives they deserve. She began her veterinary career in 2010 here at Normandy Animal Hospital and is currently enrolled in the Veterinary Technology program at Penn Foster. She loves the challenge of working with patients who can not speak for themselves and working with the veterinarian to find out what is ailing them. In her free time, she can be found camping, fishing, jeeping and exploring in nature with her husband, 2 labs, 2 cats, and bunny rabbit.
