Jan Rhodes, DVM
Jan joined the team at Skagit in Feb, 2018, and had the privilege of working with Dr Dight before he retired. I moved here in 2009 from San Diego, CA, where I had my own clinic and then went on to work at a 24 hour Veterinary hospital in Del Mar, CA. I came to the Northwest to learn how to sail and ended up marrying my sailing instructor!
I am devoted to all animals, large and small but have settled into mostly dogs and cats, and especially Golden Retrievers, my breed and my love. Oh, but I can’t forget, Badger, the Sea Dog, who goes with us on our sailboat every summer up the Inside Passage to Desolation Sound and beyond. He is the best Border terrier ever!
