Ashley Nakaoka, DVM
I was born and raised in Honolulu and graduated from Punahou School. I attended Wellesley College and the University of Hawaii at Manoa and earned Bachelor's Degrees in Biology and Japanese Language. I earned my DVM from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine where I developed an appreciation for Integrative Medicine and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. Upon graduation, I completed a Small Animal Rotating Internship at MedVet Silicon Valley in San Jose, CA. I trained in Small Animal Acupuncture and Food Therapy with the Chi Institute and am excited to additionally start pursuing rehabilitation certification with the Canine Rehab Institute next year!
In my free time, I enjoy activities surrounding food and fitness, such as cooking and hosting dinner parties, attending farmers markets, weight training and fitness martial arts. My first international trip was to Japan and it remains a top travel destination, but I have also visited China, Spain, United Kingdom and France. I love learning about cultures through my stomach and hope to travel more in the future!
I have Zen, a little 14-year-old Lhasa-Maltese I adopted 11 years ago from the Hawaiian Humane Society, and will be adding a new pup later on this year!
