Dr. Jordan Fromm
Dr. Fromm is a brand new veterinarian who graduated with her degree on May 8th, 2021. CVC will be her first job as an associate veterinarian. She has worked at Cascade previously as a doctor’s aide during her undergrad and vet school breaks since 2015 and is so excited to be back as a veterinarian! She has wanted to be a veterinarian ever since she can remember as a little girl. Dr. Fromm started along the path by volunteering in a veterinary hospital when she was 11 years old and ever since worked or volunteered in clinics. She knew this is what she wanted to do because she wanted to help give a voice and advocate for animals that can’t do it on their own and be a support and resource for their owners.
Dr. Fromm moved to Wenatchee from Dillon, MT, with her family when she was 12. Dr. Fromm was drawn back to Wenatchee with the opportunity to work with the amazing veterinarians at Cascade, who were also her mentors before and during vet school. She loves the beauty of the Wenatchee area and all of the outdoor opportunities, and even though all of my family has moved to other places, it will always be home for her.
Dr. Fromm can often be found with my two beagles, Hank and Mabel, enjoying a good park. If she is not out with her dogs, she is often at home enjoying a good Netflix show cuddled on the couch with Hank and Mabel, reading a good book, or planning their next scuba diving trip. During the summer, she likes to spend time out on the water and skiing at Mission Ridge during the winter.
Dr. Fromm is excited about making a difference in the lives of sick or suffering animals and getting to visibly see the change in their lives, and working as a partner with owners to keep their pets living their best and healthiest life. She is passionate about ultrasound, dentistry, and internal medicine cases.
Before she moved away for veterinary school, Dr. Fromm enjoyed volunteering with the Special Olympics every year. She looks forward to getting to resume that now that she is back in Wenatchee.
Dr. Fromm is so excited to return to Cascade Vet Clinics and work alongside her mentors, friends, and amazing clients and patients. She loves all things related to the ocean, especially sharks.

Dr. Leah Edwards
Dr. Edwards has been a vet since 2006 and has been with Cascade since 2016. She grew up outside of Columbus, Ohio. She practiced in Oregon, Tennessee & North Carolina before moving back to the Pacific Northwest to be closer to family, friends & the mountains.
She loves all aspects of veterinary medicine, especially emergency medicine. The challenging nature, fast pace, and diverse caseload of ER cases excites her. Dr. Edward’s professional development and continuing education have focused on emergency medicine and extensive abdominal ultrasound & cardiac imagining training.
If she’s not working, she’s usually on her mountain bike, exercising, or adventuring with her three Chesapeake Bay retrievers.
a) Certified veterinary acupuncture (CVA)
Dr. Eric Brownlee
Dr. Brownlee has been practicing at cascade veterinary clinics since graduating from the University of Glasgow school of veterinary medicine in June 2014. He had a bit of an unconventional path leading to his current career which involved working several laboratory positions after their undergraduate degree in chemistry achieved at Central Washington University. His love and compassion for animals, background in the sciences, as well as his ambition to practice medicine led Dr. Brownlee into the veterinary field. He took the plunge with his wife in 2009 and moved to Glasgow, UK to pursue this dream. They also had the opportunity to travel and start their family having 2 of their 3 children during this time in Scotland.
Dr. Brownlee and his wife grew up in Wenatchee, graduating from Wenatchee high school in 2001. They returned to the area to raise their family in the community they love and be to be closer to their family, friends, and recreation for all seasons. They love skiing in the winter months, and a lot of time is spent in the snow with family and friends. The months between are spent enjoying the sun and the water when available. They enjoy water sports, hiking, biking, and fishing. They personally love to golf when they can find the time. They also enjoy cooking/baking and in a past life have loved working with ceramics/pottery.
Dr. Brownlee is passionate about providing the best care possible for all pets and is excited to continue to be part of progressive veterinary practice. He prides himself on being caring, understanding, honest, and relatable to clients. He is often referred to as being too nice.
Dr. Brownlee has received no recent credentials or awards but received several awards upon completion of his veterinary degree, including best in core skills ‘anesthesia’ and ‘Favorite American.’ Dr. Brownlee always enjoys giving back to the community when possible. Their growing family has kept them very busy, but they take every opportunity to volunteer with child activities, sports, and school.
Dr. Brownlee is committed to the community and continues to be excited to be able to provide the best care possible to pets as a member of the Cascade Veterinary Clinics. His wife, Nichole, and himself have a young family, including three children (Oliver, Isla, Theodore), a dog (Angus), and a cat (mittens). They find themselves lucky to continue to be a part of this growing community and veterinary practice.
Dr. Stephanie Allphin
Dr. Allphin started working at CVC after graduating from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2014. She feels very fortunate that her first job out of school has been so rewarding and has given her the tools to grow as a veterinarian over these past several years. As cliché as it may sound, she has always wanted to be a veterinarian. Dr. Allphin grew up surrounded by all sorts of pets. Through these interactions and relationships, she has developed a love and compassion for animal care, recognizing the importance of the human-animal bond.
Dr. Allphin was raised in Enumclaw, WA, which was a great area to grow up in. However, her husband and herself love the lifestyle and weather in Central Washington. Wenatchee is a beautiful area with so many recreational opportunities and a wonderful community. Even as Wenatchee continues to grow, it still maintains the benefits of smaller town charm, which she greatly appreciates.
Raising their young family has impacted her free time a bit! However, baking is something that she has always found a lot of joy in. Dr. Allphin likes to experiment with a variety of different desserts and new recipes, which she often tests out on her coworkers! They also try to find as much time as they can to be outside hiking, fishing, and exploring our beautiful valley as a family.
Dr. Allphin is most passionate about promoting good dental health in her patients. She finds great satisfaction in performing dental procedures in order to benefit a pet’s comfort level and overall quality of life. She also enjoys preventative care medicine to be proactive in promoting a long, happy and healthy life for her patients.
Dr. Allphin’s career as a veterinarian is something that she is truly passionate about. She treats all her patients with the highest standard of care, recognizing the important role that their pets play in their lives.
Dr. Erik Stoll
Dr. Stoll has been a veterinarian for 3 years and has been with Cascade for 3 years. He gained invaluable experience in the art of animal medicine while spending many of his childhood summers working with his father, who is also a veterinarian. The diverse scope of practice that veterinary medicine offers and the opportunity to build relationships with clients while caring for their beloved animals.
Dr. Stoll grew up in the beautiful small town of Sandpoint, Idaho. The opportunity to work with a group of highly talented, team-oriented veterinarians (including his wife, Dr. Eichler). He enjoys exploring the great outdoors with his wife and their dogs, Angus and Elsa.
Dr. Stoll loves the diversity that general practice offers and the opportunity to work in a profession where there is no learning plateau. He is motivated to keep learning and growing in this profession by his desire to serve clients and their beloved pets best.
Dr. Sarah Eichler
Dr. Eichler has been a veterinarian for 4 years and has been with Cascade for 4 years. After earning an Associate of Science degree from Wenatchee Valley College in 2007, Dr. Eichler spent time overseas teaching English in Brazil and Afghanistan. Her time abroad emphasized the integral relationship between humans and animals that had always been her passion and propelled her decision to become a veterinarian. She is a native of the Wenatchee Valley, having grown up primarily in Cashmere. The call of the mountains and the opportunity to work with an incredible group of doctors led her back to the Wenatchee Valley in the spring of 2017.
Outside of work, Dr. Eichler spends the majority of her time hiking, rock climbing, and enjoying the antics of her two pups, Angus and Elsa, their very silly cat, Fern, the best horse in the world, Luke, and one of her favorite colleagues (who happens to be my husband), Dr. Erik Stoll.
Dr. Eichler loves the diversity of veterinary medicine and the opportunity to build relationships with owners through caring for their furry family members from the first weeks of life all through their golden years.
While working towards her DVM, Dr. Eichler earned an additional certificate in global animal health, focusing on discovering novel approaches for disease intervention and delivery of preventive health care for animals and humans.
Dr. Justin Miller
Dr. Miller graduated from WSU in May of 2009, which means she has now been a veterinarian for 12 years, 10 of which have been at Cascade. She has always LOVED dogs and desperately wanted a cat, but her parents wouldn’t allow one growing up. Her summer camp counselor teased her for how much she talked about her family dog, Buddy, a lab/pointer mix, the best dog of all time. Oddly enough, she didn’t consider being a veterinarian a career pathway until her freshman year at WSU. She started as a communications major with the idea of becoming a news broadcaster but quickly realized it wasn’t the right fit. Dr. Miller always enjoyed her science classes, and it finally dawned on her that she could study science to work with dogs and cats all day.
Dr. Miller grew up in Edmonds, a suburb of Seattle. When she met her husband, Zack Hambleton, in veterinary school, they knew they wanted to end up somewhere with great access to outdoor recreation as they both love skiing, hiking, mountain biking, and trail running. The greater Wenatchee area is a perfect fit and is a close drive for them to visit family on the west side of the mountains.
When not working, Dr. Miller is home with their two sons, Cliff (9) and Jules (7), their two rascally dogs, Tula and Bruce, their naughty kitten, Clark, and the embodiment of feline perfection, their 3 legged cat, Trike. They are a very active family and enjoy skiing at Mission in the winter, running, biking the local trails, and backpacking. She is also an avid reader and looks forward to their book club coming back together after COVID!
She finds client education when she can help a client better understand what is going on with their beloved pet to better care for them to be the most rewarding aspect of her job! In that same vein, she has lived the experience of owning a dog with significant behavioral issues. Helping clients better understand the root of behavior problems and the keys to solving them is immensely gratifying.
Dr. Miller has not received any awards recently, but she is self-nominated and awarded Mom of the Year. She spent many years as a Meals on Wheels deliverer and volunteered at several of the WVHS low-income spay and neuter clinics. The Chelan Douglas Land Trust and Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance build and maintain many of the trails she holds dear.
Dr. Andy DeMarco, Owner
Dr. DeMarco was raised in Spokane. He graduated from Eastern Washington University and had a ten-year career in criminal justice. His interest in animals eventually led him to pursue his veterinary degree at Washington State University.
A transplant to the Wenatchee Valley, he feels right at home due to the abundance of recreational activities available. He also enjoys spending time with their four Michaelanne, Will, Jackie, and Clay. Dr. DeMarco is proud to be part of the team at Cascade and looks forward to serving pets and their families here for many years to come!
In 2008, he also joined Dr. Womack as a full partner in the practice.
Dr. Ty Johnson, Owner
Dr. Johnson grew up in Entiat, WA, where much of his family still resides. After graduating from Entiat High School, he attended Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA, where he received his pre-veterinary degree in biology. During the summers, he worked for the Forest Service on the Entiat Hotshot Crew fighting forest fires. Dr. Johnson attended veterinary school at Washington State University and graduated in 2002 with a degree in veterinary medicine. After graduation, Dr. Johnson returned to the Wenatchee Valley at Cascade Veterinary Clinic as an associate veterinarian. In 2008 he became a full partner. Dr. Johnson’s special interests include orthopedic surgery and ophthalmology. He is one of a small number of veterinarians in Washington State who is trained in arthroscopic surgery.
When not at work, Dr. Johnson enjoys rafting and fishing the Wenatchee River and skiing at Mission Ridge with his wife Emily and their two children, Max and Haille.
Dr. Colin Bonnett, Owner
Dr. Bonnett was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, before going to college at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. Fortunately, the mountains and rivers of Montana and the Alaskan summers provided relief and distraction from pursuing a career with his undergraduate degree in Fish and Wildlife Management. He returned to MSU-Bozeman to complete a Master of Science in the microbiology department, studying immunology and infectious disease before enrolling in the Veterinary Medicine program at Washington State University in 2005.
Dr. Bonnett loves the diverse caseload and client interactions of general practice. He has taken additional training to advance his interest in minimally invasive surgery (such as laparoscopy and endoscopy), advanced dentistry, and orthopedic surgery. With an emphasis on client communication and education, he enjoys teaming up with his patients’ owners to implement the best possible care for their pets.
Colin has a bad guitar and mountain bike habit, which he continues to refuse treatment for. When not working, he and his wife Kate and two kids (Ada 8, Evan 4) will be found along the rivers, on the trails, in the mountains, beside the ice-cream stands, and playing in the music festivals of the surrounding area! They love being a part of this great community and look forward to enjoying many more years of building great relationships here. He loves to see his clients and their pets out on the trails and slopes. See you there!
Dr. Zach Warmenhoven
Dr. Zach Warmenhoven grew up in Kettle Falls, a small town nestled on Lake Roosevelt in Northeast Washington. His parents had a small hobby farm where much of his youth was spent helping with the husbandry of horses, cattle, pigs, chickens, rabbits, and of course, their family pets. From 2005-2009 he honorably served in the United States Air Force as an airborne cryptologic linguist. Reflecting on his youth, it was during this time that Zach decided to pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine. The combination of scientific inquiry, working with one’s hands and senses, and striving to help others (critters and people alike), seemed to align perfectly with his interests and personality.
Upon discharge from military service, he began working on his education, earning a Bachelor’s of Science Summa Cum Laude in Animal Sciences at Washington State University. While attending school, he also worked as a seasonal commercial fisherman in Bristol Bay, Alaska, and a veterinary assistant in the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital Equine Surgery Department. Zach then matriculated into WSU Veterinary College and graduated at the top of his class in 2017.
While at WSU, Zach distinguished himself by engaging in scientific research with Dr. Joseph Harding’s Laboratory. Zach supported the research primarily by helping to optimize animal models the lab was using to test candidate pharmaceuticals aimed to treat neurodegenerative diseases. The lead compound from this research is currently in stage 3 clinical trials as an effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease with the biotech company Athira Pharma. Zach is proud of the small role he played and excited to see this therapy help many of those suffering the debilitating illness.
Zach has maintained relationships at WSU primarily through volunteer work mentoring second-year veterinary students at WSU’s esteemed Diagnostic Challenge program. This is a unique learning experience where teams of veterinary students engage in a simulated clinical case over the course of a week, working their way through the steps of interviewing clients, examining a patient, determining and interpreting appropriate diagnostics, and giving treatment recommendations. Whether it is with veterinary students, clients, or colleagues, Zach finds teaching and learning to be some of the most rewarding parts of practice.
After graduating from veterinary school in 2017, Zach started practice at Cascade Veterinary Clinic in Wenatchee. The Wenatchee Valley offered an abundance of outdoor activities and scenic beauty. The growing community seemed to be an ideal place to raise his children, who were toddlers at the time. In addition, Cascade Veterinary Clinic was an appealing place to work because of their tight-knit, team-oriented approach and the high caliber of medicine they practiced (still do!). Zach has worked at the Wenatchee location since 2017, and as of 2021, is seeing patients at the Leavenworth location. He is excited to become immersed in the Leavenworth community and build relationships with folks and their pets as he has in Wenatchee.
Zach enjoys all facets of medicine and surgery but takes a particular interest in diagnostic imaging. He has spent the last few years building skills in echocardiography and ultrasound. In concert with telemedicine specialist consultation, this has elevated both Cascade’s diagnostic capabilities and access to these services in our region. Zach will seek further continuing education in diagnostic imaging to achieve more advanced skills in these areas. He also takes a special interest in end-of-life care. End-of-life decisions for our pets can be some of the most difficult decisions we face. This period in our relationship with our pet is certainly sad, painful, sometimes tragic, but it can also be beautiful and is absolutely important. Zach takes pride in trying to help people navigate these decisions and ease the suffering of their loved ones while honoring each families’ particular values.
Dr. Zack Hambleton, Owner
Dr. Hambleton has been a veterinarian now for 12 years, and that entire time he has worked for CVC. This was his first job out of vet school, and it has been such a fantastic fit for him that he’s never wanted to work anywhere else. He has always loved science and working with animals. He was planning on being a wildlife biologist through undergrad and worked a variety of wildlife field jobs before going to vet school. He bounced around jobs for a while, working as a commercial fisherman, spotted owl field research assistant, working with sea turtles in Hawaii, and working on the California Condor Recovery Project. In the end, being a veterinarian was a great balance of working with people, animals and using science and problem solving that fit very well for him.
Dr. Hambleton grew up in Sultan, WA, and settled in Wenatchee with his wife, Justin Miller, when they graduated from WSU vet school together. They were looking for a community close to outdoor recreation and looking for a CVC business that supported them in their growth. We live in Cashmere now with our two sons and love the community and surrounding areas that we are privileged to live in.
Most weekends, Dr. Hambleton and his wife are out adventuring with their two sons, Cliff (9) and Jules (7). It’s a full-time job keeping up with them, and they have a constantly running argument about what they want to do for the weekend. Skiing, mountain biking, climbing, and backpacking are squeezed in between never-ending skate park sessions, soccer games, river floats, and backyard frisbee and barbeques with friends. A used canoe is the most recent addition to their expanding garage gear pile, which his wife thinks is really getting out of hand. Most weekends, they’re all ready to go back to work or school so they can recover and get ready for the next one. When they do sit still, it’s usually to fight over who gets to snuggle our three-legged cat named Trike.
Dr. Hambleton really enjoys the connections that he makes with people while taking care of their pets. He enjoys working through complicated medicine cases and the report and trust-building that goes along with them. He also enjoys soft tissue surgery, dentistry, and ultrasound imaging.
Dr. Hambleton volunteered for Cashmere Youth Soccer as a soccer coach. They also are active in local non-profits that they hold dear, including the Wenatchee River Institute, Chelan Douglas Land Trust, and Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.
Dr. Kelsey Roberts
Dr. Roberts graduated in the Spring of 2021 from Washington State Veterinary School (Go Cougs!), and is excited that her first job as a veterinarian will be with CVC! She has always had a love for animals. As a kid, she would wake up to watch the “ER Vets” show on Animal Planet instead of cartoons on the weekends. That love grew with her first pet fish, Babe, and her first dog, Nilla. She has gotten to work with a lot of cool animals since then (frogs, elephants, big cats), and all of it has shown me how special animals are and how big of an impact they can have in our lives. Being a veterinarian means they get to show that love to other people and share their excitement about their animals.
Dr. Roberts is a born and raised Idahoan who grew up in the Boise area. However, she and her husband I fell in love with the beautiful scenery and the multitude of outdoor recreation opportunities. It reminds them of all our favorite things about home.
A few cups of morning coffee is a must for a relaxing day off. As a bit of a foodie, she enjoys finding new restaurants, or going out to tried and true spots for weekend breakfast is her favorite – any suggestions/recommendations appreciated. And if the weather holds, she likes to get the dogs out of the house and go just for a walk/run or camping, hiking, and water activities like swimming and paddleboard.
Dr. Roberts’ favorite thing about the veterinary profession is it allows her to be an animal lover, a lifelong learner, and a teacher all in one. As a new grad, she has a lot of interests, including soft-tissue and orthopedic surgery, cardiology, and preventative medicine. She is fortunate to be with a practice that lets her explore all these areas as well as discover new interests. She’d also be happy and love to see any exotics or critters besides cats and dogs.
Dr. Roberts would love to get involved as a volunteer or assistant coach with local sports teams. Growing up, sports (soccer and basketball) played a huge role in her life, and she’d love to give back to the community. She also likes supporting local humane societies (all her animals are shelter/rescue animals). She looks forward to not only joining the team at CVC but also becoming a part of the wonderful community in the Wenatchee area. She is ready to meet you and your pets and maybe even run into you on the Riverfront trail or out on a hike!

Dr. Annie Gibson
This is Dr. Gibson’s first year of practice as a veterinarian and her first year at CVC! She has always really enjoyed math and science but wanted to find a career where she could still find ways to actively help others and interact with others. She became interested in being a veterinarian when she was in college and then started to volunteer and work at a small animal clinic near her home. From then on, she knew she wanted to be a veterinarian. Dr. Gibson has always enjoyed working with animals and really loves that she has the opportunity to help others by helping their “family” members.
Dr. Gibson grew up in Northern Idaho near a town called Coeur d’Alene. She is moving to Wenatchee because she enjoys the area and wants to live in an area with a good amount of outdoor recreation opportunities. She is also moving to the area to work at CVC – she wanted to join the Cascade team to provide high-quality medicine in a collaborative environment – after visiting for her interview, she knew that this was the clinic she wanted to work at.
On her days off, you can either find her outdoors—hiking, mountain biking, on the water, etc.—or spending time with her friends and pets (a dog named Pendleton and a cat named Porter). Dr. Gibson enjoys being outside and enjoying downtime with others. Other past times she has, include cooking/baking as well as reading.
Within veterinary medicine, Dr. Gibson’s interests include internal medicine cases, surgery, and emergency medicine. She is always excited about learning more from her cases and patients. She is also passionate about getting to know her clients and patients better to provide the best service possible.
Dr. Gibson is Fear Free Certified and Recover CPR trained. She has previously worked with Rural Area Veterinary Services, which is a group that provides free veterinary care to rural areas that don’t have readily available access to regular veterinary care. She participated in one of these groups out on the Quinault Reservation during veterinary school. She plans to continue returning and working with this group to continue serving those who don’t normally have access to pet medical care. Dr. Gibson has also worked with animal shelters during veterinary school to assist with spay/neuter programs. Both of these have been rewarding ways to use her skills to help others and serve communities. She really enjoys giving back and looks forward to further take advantage of those opportunities in the future!
Dr. Gibson’s goal as a veterinarian here at CVC is to provide the best care possible in the best interest of her patients. She is a very dedicated individual and loves the bond she forms with patients and their owners. Any client who works with her will get the best care and service she can provide, and wants her clients to know that she’ll always do her best every day in the interest of their pet. She also tries to bring a smile to everyone with her own sense of humor.
Dr. Edward Womack, Owner
Dr. Womack grew up in Wenatchee and graduated from Wenatchee High in 1980. He spent the next 5 years pursuing degrees in both biology and zoology at Washington State University. His veterinary degree was completed at WSU in 1989. Dr.Womack returned home after spending a brief period in Everett and has been at Cascade Veterinary Clinic ever since.
He became a partner in the practice in 1996, an owner in 2002, and continues to enjoy his work not only with dogs and cats but also with exotic species (birds, reptiles, small mammals).
He and his wife Allison, and their two children Jake and Kiley love all of the outdoor recreations Wenatchee offers, and take advantage of it year-round. They have a house full with 2 cats and their new Golden Retriever puppy Karma. Music continues to be something he enjoys -he takes an active role-playing trumpet in the Wenatchee Big Band, and occasional community musical productions. Dr. Womack is proud to be a part of such a wonderful, growing veterinary team that is committed to sincerely serving our clients and their pet’s needs.
