She earned her undergraduate degree at Central Washington University and then graduated from Washington State University's College of Veterinary Medicine and has been practicing in Vancouver ever since. She purchased Columbia Veterinary Center in 1993 and has built a team of 15 who work together to provide excellent medical, surgical and dental services delivered with compassion and understanding. Dr. Cleveland has a passion for people and animals and has a deep respect of the bond between the two. Dr. Cleveland is a member of the AVMA, WSVMA, PVMA and the SWVMA.
Out of the clinic, Dr. Cleveland volunteers on a regular basis at Share House, providing exams and vaccines for the pets belonging to the families using Share House services. She enjoys her own dog, Brin, who is usually at work with her, and her cat, Makita Ilean, the three legged wonder. She also enjoys her family and friends, photography, hiking and motorcycle riding. She especially loves to travel and has had the opportunity to explore Mexico, Australia and the Caribbean. In 2007, she participated in a photograph safari in Kenya... the trip of a lifetime... so far!
