Dr. Wendy Saunders
Dr. Saunders was raised in Wyoming and attended the University of Wyoming for her undergraduate work. She left Wyoming for the North West and graduated from Oregon State University. She finished her studies in 1995 and received her DVM from Washington State University. She practiced in Nevada and Oregon before buying a clinic in Wyoming which was sold in 2010 and made her permanent move to Olympia. Dr. Saunders worked at Healthy Pets since 2011 before leaving to take over Chambers Prairie.
She shares her house with 3 dogs, 2 inside birds, 5 chickens, and 2 teenage children. In her spare time she enjoys trying to make 2 of her most favorite things happen: baking anything chocolate and growing fresh tomatoes. Dr. Saunders and her big black dog have logged quite a few miles on the Chehalis Western Trail and sometimes she can even get the kids to accompany her.
Dr. Hannah Robertson
Dr. Robertson was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. She attended New Mexico State University in pursuit of her love of horses and medicine, and graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science
with Equine Emphasis. She left the desert south for the pacific northwest to begin her DVM at Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine where she met her fiancé, and discovered a profound passion for small animal medicine. A trip to Kallaloch Beach on the Olympian Peninsula set the pair on a path to live in western Washington after graduation in 2018. Her medical interests include internal medicine, pain management, and toxicology.
She is currently owned by two cats, Tika and Touka, and a mixed-breed dog, Murdoch. Her dream is to buy a home with enough land to own and train horses. In her spare time, Dr. Robertson can be found cooking and baking, reading novels, gardening or hiking with her fiancé.
Dr. Marleybob Dobyns
I cannot wait to break-in this shiny new DVM from Iowa State University, and I am thrilled to be joining the Chambers Prairie veterinary care team! While there is a special place in my heart for certain cloven-hooved patients (sheep, goats, llamas, and alpacas of course), my veterinary passions have grown over the years to include a little bit of everything.
A patchwork-quilt of experiences help me problem-solve, learn, and grow every day. My years coaching a youth diving club showed me a calling for education and community outreach I never knew I had, and I see myself getting involved in and around Olympia. Opportunities overseas also taught me the importance of service, adaptability, and appreciation of life’s luxuries. I hope to bring these strengths to each of my client-patient relationships.
When I’m not working I love getting lost in a fiction podcast, making art, knitting, or cooking something new. Though, I foresee many outdoor adventures ahead in my new home in the Pacific Northwest!
Brian Green - Hospital Manager
My life revolves around my family. I met my wife Kelly in 2002 when we both joined the Peace Corps and headed to Lesotho in southern Africa. Once we got out we moved to Olympia and planted our roots here. With time came our two beautiful daughters, Elliot and Josie. Along the way we took in 1 cat, 1 dog and multiple fish. Majoring in drawing from Arizona State University was an obvious gateway to the veterinary field, although I didn't know it at the time. For the last 13 years or so I have moved up from a kennel cleaner to assistant to dabbling in tech duties and eventually management. It's very exciting to be joining Dr. Wendy Saunders in this adventure. I look forward to providing the best care possible to the pets of our new community.
