Dr. Lindquist decided to become a veterinarian in order to use her love of science and medicine to provide whole life quality health care to our animal family members who give us unconditional love and companionship.
Dr. Lindquist has a strong interest in internal medicine and geriatric medicine. She enjoys helping her patients’ age gracefully and helping provide them with a good quality of life. Dr. Lindquist feels that the patient family and the veterinarian are a team and that together they can make the best decisions for the care of the patient. She feels that education and trust are integral to quality and compassionate care.
After growing up in vineyard filled Northern California, Dr. Lindquist traveled north to Oregon where she graduated from Linfield College with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Biology, with minors in Chemistry and Spanish. Dr. Lindquist then traveled east to Iowa State University where she earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree. After spending a year practicing Large and Small Animal Medicine on the Oregon Coast, Dr. Lindquist made the long travel north to Alaska. In 2012, Dr. Lindquist joined the team at Alaska Veterinary Clinic and has been happily serving our patients ever since.
When Dr. Lindquist is not in the clinic helping her patients, she can be found outside enjoying all that Alaska has to offer. She enjoys spending her free time with her husband Tyler, kitten Yzma and three dogs (Gauge, Artemis and Lily), whether that be hiking, bird hunting with her setters, camping, kayaking, or fishing.
