Dr. Erin Castle
Dr. Erin Castle graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2004, after obtaining a B.S. in wildlife biology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 1999. She practiced small animal medicine in New York and San Diego before moving to Portland in 2011. She worked as an associate at Hillsdale Veterinary Group before purchasing Portland Animal Clinic in 2015. Her interests are internal medicine, surgery and dentistry. She shares her home with her boyfriend, 2 cats, and 1 dog. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, camping, kayaking and reading.
Alex came to Portland Animal Clinic from another hospital with Dr. Castle when she purchased PAC in January 2015. He has been working as a veterinary technician since 2006, and is now also taking classes to pursue a career in human medicine. Alex lives with his girlfriend, Chelsea, their three brachycephalic (smoosh-faced) cats, and his German Shepherd mix, Charlie. His hobbies include riding (and fixing) European motorcycles, gaming, target shooting, and sometimes struggling to learn a new musical instrument.
Lynhaar joined the Portland Animal Clinic team in July 2015. She is a native from the Island of Puerto Rico. She knew early in her life that she had a passion to take care of animals. She finds fulfillment in being the voice for the voiceless. To start her dreams, she graduated with an Associate degree in Animal Science at the University of Puerto Rico. She also did an apprenticeship to learn the art of Pet Grooming. She spent a decade in Colorado, working as a veterinary assistant and pet groomer. Three years ago she moved with her family to Portland to start yet a new chapter in her life, loving the diversity of people, the weather and beautiful scenery. She and her loved ones share their home with her furry family which includes dogs, cats, chinchillas and rats. In her spare time she enjoys hiking with her dogs, reading and searching for that perfect cup of “Joe”.
My name is Lisa, I have been a pet groomer for more than 7 years. I enjoy working on all breeds with a careful eye for detail and a loving touch. I specialize in working with elderly and disabled animals. My ultimate dream is to one day become a veterinarian. My best friend in the whole world is a mastiff mix named Monet.
Alli started at Portland Animal Clinic in October 2017 as an official receptionist for the team. She moved to Portland just the year before, after graduating from Eastern Connecticut State University with a bachelors degree in Sociology. Though she grew up with cats and dogs, the world of animal welfare is still relatively new for her, and while she can’t see herself becoming a vet she says she loves working for one and meeting all the sweet, furry faces that come and go. When she’s not manning the front desk Alli enjoys exploring the city and surrounding wilderness, good conversation, and all the little things that make life so magical.

She has 2 dogs, Bandit and Kaia, and in her free time she likes to take her dogs on hikes, read, and relax in the sunshine.
