She thrives in the busy, fast-paced environment and appreciates the quality of medicine and dedication to patient care she finds at PEC. She believes that collaboration and support between colleagues are an essential component to a fulfilling work environment. Both professional and fun-loving, she strives to provide respectful and compassionate care while being both flexible and practical in her medical approach.
While not caring for patients at PEC, Dr. Bronk enjoys running, and exploring the outdoors with her Australian Shepherd, daughter, and twin boys.
In 2018, she started working part time at an afterhours emergency clinic in Visalia, CA and discovered her love of emergency medicine. She enjoys the opportunity to care for clients and their pets when they most need it.
Dr. Earnest joined the Pet Emergency Clinic Team in February 2020. She is excited about being able to provide the community with high quality veterinary care that allows clients to best care for their pets in their given situation.
In her spare time, Dr. Earnest enjoys horseback riding, kayaking, running, and hiking with her two dogs (Lu and Oakley), and anything else that allows her to be outside.
Following graduation, he worked at a busy mixed animal practice in Snohomish, WA as a small animal general and emergency practitioner. His family chose to relocate to Spokane to escape the hustle and bustle of the Seattle area. Dr. Rocco has taken a keen interest not only in the practice of emergency veterinary medicine but also in leadership and business operations.
In his free time, he spends time with his wife, three sons, and five cats.
After graduation, Dr. Nelson completed a Small Animal Internship at Cornell University. In 2012, Dr. Nelson completed her residency in Small Animal Internal Medicine at Texas A&M. After earning her specialty in Small Animal Internal Medicine, she worked for 2 years at Pieper Memorial Veterinary Center, an emergency and specialty hospital in Connecticut, before returning to Texas A&M to teach as a Clinical Assistant Professor.
Dr. Nelson returned to Spokane and joined PECRC in 2015 and is currently serving as the head of the Internal Medicine Department. She is excited for the future of PECRC in Spokane and is dedicated to adapting to the ever-changing needs of the community. She enjoys all aspects of her challenging cases and loves the relationships she develops with her clients and referring veterinary community.
In her spare time, Dr. Nelson enjoys spending time with her husband Sean, their growing family, and their Labrador, Tillie.
