Ashley Parra, Medical Director

My name is Ashley Parra and I am the Medical Director and associate veterinarian here at VCA Forestville Animal Hospital.

I grew up here in wonderful Sonoma County. My father is a local veterinarian and the majority of my childhood and teenage years were spent at my parent's clinic. I completed my undergraduate (Animal Biology), masters (Comparative Pathology) and veterinary degrees at UC Davis (GO AGGIES!). While an undergraduate, I played the string bass in the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra. During a UCDSO tour in France, I fell in love with international travel. The following year, I spent a year studying abroad in York, UK. I was very involved with the UC Davis Orphan Kitten Project while in vet school. Fostering Kittens(especially bottle babies) is a guilty pleasure and kitten season keeps me busy.

Following my graduation from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2011, I worked as an associate veterinarian in the East Bay. I missed the slower pace of Sonoma County and decided to move home. I love being a part of the VCA Forestville Animal Hospital family and I couldn't ask for better patients.

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, weekend adventures, listening to music, and drinking wine. My current herd includes two kitties (Radar and Bruce) and a crazy little dog (Batman).
