Carla Lerum DVM
PVMA President, 2018-20
Presently, I work on the Veterinary Affairs team at Banfield Pet Hospital’s headquarters in Vancouver, WA. I previously worked as a clinical veterinarian at Banfield Pet Hospital locations in Oregon. In my current role, I bring a medical and operational perspective to the broader scope of work. This incorporates drafting medical policies and guidelines, being a liaison for other teams for hospital workflow, and managing the process for evaluation of quality in the care that is delivered by veterinary teams in Banfield’s more than 1,000 hospitals across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. I earned my veterinary degree from Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine after graduating from Lewis and Clark College. I enjoy connecting with and supporting the veterinary community, including being an active volunteer at local and national STEM events and alumni events to engage students in the sciences.
