    Dr. Patrin is a native of Shelburne, Vermont and followed a winding road to Whidbey Island. He received his B.A in International Relations with a minor in Russian language and literature from the University of Minnesota in 1996.  After a short stint in the "real world", Dr. Patrin left Minneapolis for San Diego, CA to pursue the biology courses needed for entry into Veterinary school.  After completing a B.S. in Biology from San Diego State University in 2002, he was admitted to Iowa State University's college of Veterinary Medicine.  After graduating from Veterinary school in 2006,  a promising opportunity surfaced in Oak Harbor, WA .   Dr. Patrin became familiar with the South Whidbey Animal Clinic (SWAC) as a relief veterinarian for Dr. Robben Jones.  Dr. Patrin, wanting to own his own clinic pursued an ownership opportunity in Vermont in November 2008.  But, fate brought the family back to Whidbey Island in May 2010 to purchase SWAC.

    Dr. Patrin has two dogs, an five year old Bullmastiff named Enzo and an 1 year old Border Collie named Cali.   Dr. Patrin and his three wonderful children are happy to be back on Whidbey and look forward to getting involved in the community and becoming a staple for veterinary care on the south end.

She is originally from New York and moved to Illinois at age thirteen.  She learned early on that she had a natural love of both domestic and small exotic animals.  Isabell started her professional career as a Veterinary Technician in a small animal 'cat' clinic in Illinois.  She soon discovered that her true passion is not only with one type of pet, but many. In 2007 she moved permanently to Whidbey Island where she found her place here at the South Whidbey Animal Clinic.

    Isabell and her husband reside in Freeland with their two companion animals: Guinevere (a Siberian Husky) and Penelope (an Alaskan Malmute).
