Julie Nelson, Lead Receptionist
I started my career in the Veterinary field as a Vet Tech several years ago then I took time off to raise my family. I then pursued other careers such as an HR Manager, Operations Director and Office Manager within both the United States as well as Mexico. I also worked with two non-profit organizations in Operations where I managed all aspects of the organization from daily operations to HR to Accounting. I am now so excited to be back where I first started and where my heart is; working with animals and the people who take care of them.
Teresa, Certified Veterinary Technician
Hi, my name is Teresa and I am a CVT. I have lived in the Sandy area most of my life and worked for BTVC for the last 14 years. I enjoy riding horses and motorcycles with my husband and two children. My favorite aspect of veterinary medicine is surgical assisting.
Tayler, Veterinary Assistant
Tayler has spent her whole life around animals. Originally from Hawaii, she moved to Oregon with her family in 2012 which allowed Tayler to further her knowledge of animals by participating in small animal 4-H, and volunteering at the Oregon Humane Society as a youth volunteer. Working in veterinary medicine is the ideal place as it has been her dream to work with animals for as long as she can remember. In her spare time Tayler enjoys crafting, gardening, and curling up with a good book. She has two beautiful American Chinchilla bunnies Charlie and Miel, and a bichon-maltese dog named Gracie.

Sarah Barton, Veterinary Assistant
Sarah was born in Los Angeles, California and moved to Sandy, Oregon in 2007 where she went to high school. Sarah ended up moving back to California where she started her veterinary assistant career in emergency veterinary medicine and veterinary orthopedics. Sarah just loves Sandy, Oregon too much that she had to come back! Sarah has a strong passion for gaming, reading, and working and playing with her service dog, Roland (whom was named after one of Sarah’s favorite book characters!). Sarah has found her calling in veterinary medicine and is very proud to be part of the Barlow Trail and Village Vet team.
I have over 20 years in the customer service industry including 8 years of business management. My expertise is mainly in the human medical and nutritional fields, but I have always had a deep compassion for animals. Growing up on 11 acres in Montana, I was surrounded by many animals, great and small, throughout childhood. I enjoy spending time with my family and our dog. I thrive on seeing the world through the curious and inventive eyes of my daughter. I look forward to being a part of Barlow Trail’s team for years to come.
I was born in Lebanon and raised in Sandy Oregon. I’m a true Oregonian! Growing up around animals has always made me want to work with these beautiful creatures since I was little. I graduated from Carrington college in 2017 and joined the Barlow Trail and Village Vet teams immediately afterwards. I’m currently working towards my CVT degree. During my spare time you can find me around my horses and with my family.
Shan Hill, Practice Administrator
I may be the most blessed person ever. Take my job: I get to work with the most amazing team of caring pet professionals I have ever had the privilege of knowing. I get to work for the extraordinary Dr. Houston. I get to manage the business end of things, which is work I enjoy enough to do for free (please don’t tell Dr. Houston that). And every day is different, but full of puppies and cats and dogs and kittens and even the occasional turtle or hamster or something. I live in the beautiful state of Oregon. I have two of the best sons a father could ask for. Right next to my computer, the picture of the most lovely bride. What more could a man ask for?
