Born and raised in Oregon, Linx received her Bachelor of Arts from Willamette University and then spent 2 years in Bend, OR working as a Veterinary Assistant for her aunt, who is also a vet. She then moved back to Western Oregon to get her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Oregon State University. While in vet school she volunteered for the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon and discovered a love for Trap-Neuter-Release, High Volume High Quality Spay and Neuter and working with underserved communities.
After graduating she worked primarily as an equine vet and then was hired as Lead Veterinarian of the Bend Spay and Neuter Project, and as a Shelter Veterinarian for the Humane Society of Central Oregon. She has been the Medical Director for the Oregon Outback Humane Society (OOHS) and The Pixie Project, and has been employed as a Shelter Vet, Lead Vet, Relief Vet, and Associate for shelters, non-profits, and private practices. For the last 8 years she has worked for a private, small animal clinic as an associate veterinarian, where she performed the majority of their surgical procedures.
She continues to work with non-profit organizations both domestically and abroad that aim to care for underserved populations. She volunteers as a MASH (mobile animal sterilization hospital) veterinarian and campaign medical director with multiple international organizations. Dr. Linx is licensed in Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, and Guam.
In her free time she likes to ride her mountain bike, SCUBA dive, sport fish, spend time with her animals and work on her farm. She raises purebred Berkshire pigs, Texas Longhorns, and Arabian horses. Her Rottweiler and 3 cats (all rescues) make her house a home.
