Lisa Campbell is a veterinarian and freelance writer. Lisa has over 22 years of experience in most all aspects of veterinary medicine. She is particularly interested in the human/animal bond and the ways that pets enrich the lives of their humans.

Veterinary Medicine

Lisa graduated with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from Oregon State University and Washington State University in 1997. Lisa has worked in general practice and emergency practice as well as shelter medicine. She took the mixed animal veterinary acupuncture course through The Chi Institute in Gainseville, Florida in 2001. She has performed thousands of spay and neuter surgeries at high quality, low cost veterinary clinics across the West Coast. She is dedicated to ending the overpopulation problem and helping every shelter animal find a home.


Lisa’s first career was in Television and Film and she got her degree in screenwriting from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. She made a documentary about Alzheimer’s while in film school that was used by the Alzheimer’s Association. Her articles have been published in ASPCA magazine, Animal Wellness, and her tribute to her dog Carni was featured in The Daily News.

Farm Life

Lisa lives on her little farm with fifteen chickens (and she can tell you all their names), four silly ducks, four adorable goats, two rescue dogs, and two foster failure cats.
