Melissa Woodland

Melissa grew up in Belfair and has never really left. She graduated from BYU-I with a Bachelor's of Animal Science and plans to attend veterinary school, hopefully Washington State University. She loves all animals and is very excited to work with exotics and regular pets. She has had many different cats, a few dogs, a few hamsters, and many fish as pets. One of her favorite hobbies is riding horses and hopes to own her own horse soon. Her other hobbies include reading and swimming.

Veterinary Receptionist

Michelle Ballinger
Veterinary Receptionist

I was born and raised in Bremerton. I attended Clover Park Technical College and received my certificate of completion as a Health Unit Coordinator. I worked in "human" medicine for many years, at a local hospital, a home health agency, and finally a local health insurance company. I took quite a few years off, and stayed at home to raise my beautiful children. When thinking about re-entering the work force, I decided that a job in animal medicine would be an exciting switch for me. I have been at All Creatures Animal Hospital since 2011 and have loved every minute of it! In addition to our four awesome children and six grandchildren, my husband and I are parents to two amazing dogs, two Llamas and one proud peacock.

Stacy Joyce
Veterinary Receptionist

Stacy was born & raised in Kingston. Graduated from North Kitsap High. I've spent most of my working life in the Transportation and Logistsics field in Seattle and in Portland. For my love of animals I've done some volunteering at shelters. I enjoy spending time with my family (related and non-related). I like reading, cooking, baking and family game nights & family movie nights. There is nothing that a good cup of coffee and good conversation can't fix.
I started working at All Creatures in June of 2018. I'm the proud Fur-mom to 2 dogs (Maggie & Finnegan) and 3 cats (Lulu, Alivia & Alistair). Can't wait to see all the different animals that come into All Creatures!!!!
