Born and raised in Lake Grove, Dr. Rachel Baker is a 6th generation Oregonian who completed her undergraduate studies in biology and chemistry at the University of Oregon before earning her DVM from Oregon State University. She is very excited to be returning to the community that nurtured her veterinary aspirations after practicing for 10 years in the Beaverton/Tigard area. Dr. Baker grew up just down the street from Lake Grove Veterinary Clinic and brought her own pets here when she was a little girl. She is one of the lucky ones who met the love of her life in high school and they tied the knot in 2010. She and her husband started a family in 2014 with the debut of their only son Bobby. They have four cats (Mo, Ozzy, Olly, and Tilly) and an older black lab/pit bull mix named Violet. Dr. Baker loves establishing relationships with her patients/clients and advocating for their best care through dentistry, internal medicine, surgery, pain management, and preventative medicine. When not working, Dr. Baker loves vacationing in warm places, gardening, napping, and spending time outdoors with her family.
