Dr. Christene Olschewski (ol-chef-ski) grew up in West Jordan, Utah, and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from Washington State University in 2010. She always knew that she was going to be a veterinarian, and started her career as a kennel technician at the age of 14. She progressed in the field during her undergraduate studies and first 2 years of veterinary school—where she worked as a veterinary technician, receptionist, and in-hospital management. Christene has a passion for every aspect of veterinary medicine and greatly respects the human-animal connection that bonds people to their beloved pets. Her special interests include preventative medicine, internal medicine, dermatology, behavior, general surgery, dentistry, quality of life, and end of life care.
During her free time, Christene enjoys spending time outdoors and her hobbies include hiking, rock climbing, camping, snowshoeing, cycling, cross-country skiing, gardening, photography, cooking, and baking. She shares her home with her two rescued cats (Cricket and Sassy), and a 45+ year old rescued turtle (Speedy).
