Your name: Megan Cihak
Your title: Veterinarian
Length of time in veterinary field: Graduated from veterinary school in May 2019
Background information: (where you are from/grew up etc): I grew up in Bonney Lake, Washington with my parents, brother, and our veritable miniature zoo (dogs, parakeets, fish, frogs, crawdads, hamsters, and hermit crabs). I attended school at Washington State University in Pullman for my Bachelor’s degree in Animal Sciences as well as my veterinary degree.
Why do you work at Poulsbo Marina Veterinary Clinic?: Pets are such an important part of the family, and I love being able to keep them healthy and happy.
Favorite Book or Movie (or both): My favorite movie is Forrest Gump (I could watch it on a loop!). My favorite book is ‘The Art of Racing in the Rain’ (a real tear-jerker).
Family (human and animal): I live with my best friend – a dog named Finn. I rescued him in 2014 and now he’s my favorite adventure buddy – hiker, backpacker, kayaker, and professional snuggler.
If you could live anywhere but here, where would it be?: I would love to live in New Zealand – but I’d settle for a vacation there too!
Fun fact about you: I have a goal to visit all 50 states – I’ve made it to 26 so far!
