Dr. Judy Reed

Dr Judy Reed grew up in Eastern Washington and attended Washington State University where she earned her doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. After graduation she began her career at a Willamette Valley Animal Hospital in Keizer, OR under the mentorship of Dr Sheri Morris. In 2017 Dr Reed moved to the Tualatin clinic to continue working with Dr Morris. In 2021 there was an opportunity to purchase the clinic and Drs Reed and Devault decided to purchase WVAH of Tualatin and start a new chapter in their careers.

Dr Reed enjoys spending time running, hiking, traveling, wine tasting, reading and tending to her dahlias. She is married and has 2 children who keep her busy and constantly push her to be a better mom and vet.

While Dr Reed loves all cats and dogs she has a special place in her heart for golden retrievers and will often stop everything she is doing to pet a golden and check in with their owners! Dr Reed enjoys surgery and the detective work required to solve a complex medical case. She appreciates a good puppy exam but she truly loves working with older animals and feels passionately about supporting pets and families during the final stages of life.

Dr. Emily Capuzzi

Dr. Emily Capuzzi has been at WVAH of Tualatin since graduating from veterinary school at Oregon State University in 2020.
When starting vet school, she initially thought she wanted to pursue zoo medicine, but became very passionate about small animal medicine through school & felt WVAH was the perfect fit upon graduation.
Dr. Capuzzi is the proud owner of a cat with a strong personality named Jango who has convinced everyone in the home that being an only child is the best & only option.

Even though Dr. Capuzzi has spent her entire life in different areas of Oregon, in her free time she still enjoys exploring the (new as well as old) restaurants, parks & nature her home state has to offer. She also enjoys spending time with her husband, friends & family.
Dr. Capuzzi’s favorite part of working at WVAH is that she is joined & supported by a great team & that she is constantly kept on her toes each day as we never know what will walk through the door.

Dr. Vanessa Gramlich

Dr. Gramlich graduated from Oregon State University in 2023. She was inspired to become a veterinarian after growing up in the Northern Mariana Islands where there was a large population of stray animals and limited access to veterinary care.
Before veterinary school she was interested in both large animal and small animal medicine with her experience focused on goats, pigs, dogs and cats. After doing an internship at WVAH in her 4th year, she felt at home. She loves that WVAH focuses on affordable care, is women owned and enjoys mentoring the new generation of veterinarians. When not working, she enjoys reading, painting and spending time with her two cats and one dog.
