Gwen Graf


Gwen graduated from Washington State University in 2017 and took a few months off to travel before starting at the Greymouth clinic in 2018. Passionate about a wide variety of species, you'll find her on the small animal side working with everything from birds to reptiles to mammals. When she's not working at the clinic, you're liable to find her at the local movie theatre or one of the various restaurants around town. Gwen's goal is to have the most spoiled rabbits on the Coast, although she's happy to see quite a few of her clients giving her stiff competition in that regard!
