Dr. Howe
Dr. Emily Howe originally studied special education at the University of Kansas with a distant dream of becoming a veterinarian. Just after she graduated and began teaching, her beloved dog Zoey badly fractured her leg, requiring extensive surgery and rehabilitation. With encouragement from Zoey’s surgeon, she got a job at a local vet and worked there for a year before returning to Oklahoma State University for vet school. She graduated in 2001 and relocated to Seattle to be near her sister. She worked as an associate vet in the Seattle area for six years before purchasing Ballard Animal Hospital in the summer of 2007. Dr. Howe’s special areas of interest are internal medicine, with an emphasis on geriatric medicine.

"I like internal medicine because it is usually a complicated puzzle that requires a lot of thinking to figure out and geriatrics in particular just because I love old animals. I also think that I love geriatrics because so many people give up on these animals and have the mentality that old age equals disease, and I don’t. Helping them live pain free (or as close as we can get), quality lives is just very rewarding for me."

Dr. Howe is married and has two girls. She also has a full brood of animals including Princess Cassidy Fluffytail (on old, but regal domestic long hair kitty - you may admire, but not touch her tail), a sweet old Coonhound mix named Mr. Joe, a wild and opinionated domestic short hair named Rosemary and the best cat ever who goes by many names including Mr. Tiger, Boy, BFF, Mr. Mojobojo and Fat Boy Cat! They keep us all on our toes, laughing and feeling loved.

Dr. Wallace
Dr. Jennifer Wallace graduated from Washington State University in 2005. Prior to veterinary school she studied anthropology and biology at the University of Washington. Her research led her to conduct studies on free-roaming non-human primates in Southern Mexico. Dr. Wallace has a strong interest in feline and geriatric medicine and worked in a feline-only hospital as well as general practice after veterinary school.

In her free time she enjoys reading, gardening, hiking and spending time with her family. She lives in Ballard with her husband, two daughters, two dogs (Homer and Maya) and two cats (Little Poo and Snoopy).

Dr. Berry
Dr. Renee Berry started as a relief veterinarian at Ballard Animal Hospital in 2007, and joined the team in 2009. She grew up in Mississippi and moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, following vet school graduation. Dr. Berry enjoys spending time with her husband, two daughters, two cats and her high maintenance dog. Outside of work she spends time traveling, camping, gardening or constantly trying to convince her daughters that her dance moves are cool!

Dr.  Majeski
Dr. Tammy Majeski joined Ballard Animal Hospital in September 2018. She received her B.A. in History from UCLA and, after working in the health policy department at RAND in Santa Monica, CA, returned to school to complete her veterinary medical coursework. She earned her D.V.M. from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. Dr. Majeski has worked in both small animal and shelter medicine settings around the Pacific Northwest. She has special interests in geriatric and hospice medicine, soft tissue surgery, dentistry, grief and loss/support, and a growing interest in acupuncture.  As an avid sports fan, in her spare time you may find Dr. Tammy rooting for all teams Seattle or dissecting an NCAA basketball bracket. She lives in Seattle with her wife and 3 rescue critters—Jet (a young Lab-Pittie mix) and senior cats Georgia and Louis (Louis is especially handsome in the picture here with mom). Dr. Majeski is thrilled to be part of the team at Ballard and looks forward to helping serve your pet’s healthcare needs.
