Dr. Daiga Rozensteine
Medical Director / Veterinarian
Dr. Daiga Rozensteine has been with Madison Street Animal Hospital since 2019. Born in Latvia, she knew by age five that she wanted to devote her life to animals and by ten was determined to become a veterinarian. While working at an animal shelter called Dzivnieku Draugs in Latvia, she helped establish a charity hospital for stray animals and pets of low-income families. She’s a graduate of the Latvia University of Agriculture, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, and obtained her Washington State Veterinary License in 2015. She has extensive experience in emergency care and general practice. She loves and feels deeply connected to each of her patients and strives to provide them with the highest quality care.
When away from her patients, she can be found hiking, traveling, cooking vegan food, and volunteering at Pasado’s Safe Haven. Dr. Rozensteine also shares her home with Bholu, a rescued dog from India.
Dr. Bonnie Goldthwaite
Dr. Goldthwaite grew up on a farm in the rural Midwest where she developed a passion for caring for, rather than eating, animals. She has a bachelor’s degree in English Literature and has been known to recite Hamlet’s soliloquy to her patients: “To pee or not to pee, that is the question.” She attended the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She has three children in addition to her dog, Odie, and two ferrets. Odie is more popular than she is, but she doesn’t hold it against him. You can follow him on Instagram @saddog_odie. Dr. Goldthwaite believes that good medicine is centered on a team approach focused on strong communication with owners to help them make the best decisions regarding their pet’s health
Megan joined the Madison Street team in August of 2021 with an extensive background in service management. She hadn't planned on a career with animals until she rescued an abandoned dog on the side of the road. After bonding with this dog, who was in severe distress, Megan decided to adopt the dog. This moment changed Megan's personal and professional life, and she quickly decided to switch her career to veterinary management. Megan is committed to helping the lives of pet parents and the Veterinary staff that make it all possible. She is is passionate about providing exemplary physical and emotional care to all patients and families who make Madison Street Animal Hospital their Veterinary home. When she isn't working, Megan is an advocate for mental health and enjoys spending time with her boyfriend and her three pets; Dean, Ruby, and Fergus the cat.

Sierra's career goal since she was a very young girl has been to work with animals. After graduating from the University of Idaho, she worked at a marine mammal center in Northern California. She recently moved to the greater Seattle area. She is excited to be a part of this team to help keep your pets active, healthy, and happy. She will treat your furry friends like they are her own, not just because she is an animal lover, but because it is how she wants her furry family members to be treated. She is looking forward to meeting you and your pets!
Licensed Veterinary Technician
Kimberly joined our team in 2020. A life-long animal lover, she originally planned to study biology but instead pursued degrees in English, history, and philosophy degrees, with minors in business and creative writing, and a concentration in Italian studies.
Kimberly is a native of Minnesota. Her furry family consists of two cats, Sidney and Oscar, and a Keeshond named Monroe, christened for a character on Grimm who is a blutbad or werewolf. Kimberly also calls him her mini-dire wolf.
When she’s not working at our hospital, Kimberly enjoys reading while drinking copious amounts of coffee, watching hockey, and cheering on the Seahawks. She also loves stained glass work and crocheting.
Anthony joined Madison Street and the Cara team in August of 2021. All of the dogs, cats, snakes, raccoons and other critters he's had were rehabbed or abandoned, so it just seemed right to learn to take care of them professionally.
His current animals are two cats who walked in and now refuse to leave, Ford and Soup. When not at the hospital, Anthony enjoys luring the local street cats in with treats, playing violin, and sleeping on sunny beaches.
