Monica L McGraw, DVM
with Indy and Duke
Dr. McGraw was born and raised on a small ranch near Sandpoint, Idaho. She went to the University of Idaho where she met her loving husband Justin McGraw in 2005. Then she went to Washington State University and graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. She has practiced at several clinics in North Idaho and Eastern Washington since then including Fry Creek Animal Clinic, Kellogg Pet Medical Center, and Spokane Valley Animal Hospital. In September 2016 she finally achieved her dream of clinic ownership when she purchased Lake City Pet Hospital. She devotes her life and her love to her husband, four cats, two dogs, many tropical fish, and to caring for all the pets and pet parents she meets at Lake City Pet Hospital.
From the time Tatum was young she loved animals. She has never been without a pet. Growing up she owned rats, mice, fish, dogs, cats, turtles, and many more. There is not one animal that she doesn’t like. As a kid, she dreamt of working with animals. Now as an adult, she is living her dream, her favorite part of working in the clinic though is the people. Every day she works with team members and owners she cares about. Tatum’s passion also extends to the arts. She loves to draw, paint, make sculptures, and more.
Nicholle is one of our customer service representatives. Her previous experience in management and as a technician makes her uniquely qualified to help every pet parent who calls in. Her favorite part of the job is triaging patients to assist in the efficacy of the team. Outside of work she spends her time with her husband Sam working on their property, building a house to provide a better life for their pets. Their dogs’ Dozer, Izzy, Trooper, and cat Dexter enjoy spending as much time with their pet parents as they can between the house in town and building on the property. They also like to enjoy their few peaceful moments with each other boating on lake Coeur D’Alene.
Haleigh always knew she wanted to work with animals. In 2007 Haleigh graduated from a certification program for animal behavior and struck out to open her own dog training business. While she was successful she wanted to challenge herself further to make a bigger impact in the lives of animals. Haleigh attended the well-known RVT program at Pierce College in Woodland Hills, CA, and graduated in 2016. Haleigh has been helping to improve the health and well-being of pets through veterinary medicine since 2012 and finds great satisfaction in making even the smallest improvements in any pet’s life. Haleigh currently is owned and loved by her two Australian Shepherds Atlas (black tri) and Kismet (blue merle) and is excited to be bringing home a third furry family member Parfait (red Merle).
Colleen grew up on a cattle ranch in Naples, Idaho. As an adult, she served in the U.S. Navy. She received her degree in veterinary technology while living in Arizona. In 2016 she moved home to be closer to the trees and mountains she loves. Now living in Coeur d’Alene, she spends her time planning and working on her own “fixer-upper” house, hanging out with her fur babies, and enjoying the outdoors. Colleen’s favorite part of veterinary medicine is watching those she works with succeed and grow.
