Hospital Staff - Animal Caretakers

Traci Graydon, Animal CaretakerAnimal Caretaker Traci joined the Brookfield team in February of 2015. She loves all animals and has a special place in her heart for dogs. She is currently participating in the running start program through her high school, and is attending several college classes to get a head start on her college career. She is working towards attending Washington State University’s veterinary school and hopes to become a veterinarian in the future.

Traci loves to spend her free time with her two dogs. Max, her senior Cocker Spaniel mix, enjoys spending his days lounging in the sun and snuggling with his family. Brizo, her Great Dane, is the perfect hiking buddy and can be found frequenting the trails in Cougar Mountain and Snoqualmie with Traci.

Madison, Animal CaretakerMadison joined the Brookfield team in September of 2016. She fell in love with animals at a very young age and has wanted to work with them ever since. Madison is a senior in high school and a participant in the running start program. As of now, her dream is to go into the anthropology/archaeology field or pursue a career in the veterinary field.

Outside of work and school, Madison enjoys spending time with her dogs, especially her new puppy, and her family. She also likes getting outside and practicing her photography skills or going on a nice hike with her sister. Her main passion is traveling, she loves going on as many adventures as possible and is currently planning her next big trip for the summer.

Allison, Animal CaretakerAllison joined the Brookfield team in the winter of 2018 as our Animal Caretaker zone coordinator. She graduated from Washington State University in the fall of 2014 with a degree in Animal Science. Allison then spent a year saving up money by working for a cat rescue, which is where she fell in love with special needs cats. She spent the next two years interning on small fruit and vegetable farms while advising on ruminant nutrition on Vashon Island.

Allison is excited to start her career at Brookfield and hopes to become a Licensed Animal Technician in the future. In the meantime, she loves being an advocate for animals: helping both household pets and agriculture animals lead healthy, happy lives.

Outside of work, Allison’s other passion is music. She teaches drumming to youths aged 8 – 18 with the Northwest Junior Pipe Band (a premier youth bagpipe band in the Pacific Northwest). She also travels to Burnaby, British Columbia once a week to play with her own band, the Robert Malcolm Memorial Pipe Band. Allison has traveled with her bands to the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, Scotland where both she and her students have won, receiving medals in their respective age and ability groups.
