Crooked Tails Staff

Bethany grew up in Salem, OR before attending Oregon State University for her undergraduate degree. Originally planning to become a human doc she decided at the last minute (after successfully suffering through the MCAT prep & test) that her real passion was in animal health. She then moved to beautiful New Zealand with her husband to attend veterinary school at Massey University in Palmerston North. Since moving back she has worked at a low-cost veterinary clinic in Southern Oregon until 2013 when she moved to Prineville and opened Crooked Tails. In her spare time Bethany loves to get outside hiking, mountain biking, climbing, or anything else in the mountains. She has three cats and two dogs – two crazy border collies that love getting outside for a bike ride or run.

After graduating she worked primarily as an equine vet and then was hired as Lead Veterinarian of the Bend Spay and Neuter Project, and as a Shelter Veterinarian for the Humane Society of Central Oregon. She is currently the Medical Director of the Oregon Outback Humane Society, and The Pixie Project in Portland with whom she performs bi-weekly sterilization clinics, and works with animals belonging to homeless and low-income families. Dr. Linx also has done quite a bit of traveling as a veterinarian, performing high-volume sterilization clinics domestically and abroad. She has participated in campaigns in the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Cabo Verde Africa, Siapan, Maui, Molokai, and Oahu. Since receiving her Doctorate 6 years ago, she has performed an estimated 10,000 sterilization surgeries of dogs, cats, and rabbits. Dr. Linx is also a Zeuterin Certified licensed veterinarian and trainer, and in 2015 became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist. She is licensed in Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, Guam and Saipan. Her professional interests include pain management, soft tissue surgery, Eastern Medicine, and dentistry of both horses and companion animals. In her free time she likes to hike with her Rottweiler, kayak, SUP, snowmobile, and SCUBA dive.

Jackie

Veterinary Assistant

Born in Raised in Central Oregon with a passion for Animals I decided to attend Oregon State University to study Animal Sciences with an option in Pre Veterinary Medicine as well as a minor in Chemistry. I joined the Crooked Tails team in September of 2017 as a Veterinary Assistant and couldn't be happier. I enjoy being outside as well as spending time with my wonderful husband (marriage est. 2016) and our animals, a Bleu Sharpei named Smokey, and a border collie mix named Rusty, as well as a feral kitten that we rescued named Bandit. I aspire to be a veterinarian and Doctor Holman and Doctor Linx couldn't be better examples to me. I look forward to the experience and knowledge I'll be able to gain from working with all of the wonderful gals that make Crooked Tails possible.
