Our Team

Dr. Paul DeMaris
DVM, Clinic Owner
Dr. Paul DeMaris grew up locally in Seattle, WA. Due to Paul’s sincere passion for both animals and science he knew early on that he wanted to pursue a career in veterinary medicine! Therefore, as a teenager Paul worked diligently as both a kennel assistant and veterinary assistant at a local pet hospital. After graduating from high school he was excited and ready to head over to Washington State University to start working towards his ultimate dream in becoming a veterinarian.

After graduating from vet school in 1987 and working for just a few years in the veterinary field, Dr DeMaris knew he wanted to build his own practice, based on his own values.  He wanted to be able to employ caring and compassionate staff that truly loved animals as much as he did! He also wanted to be able to offer high quality veterinary care to all of his patients, at reasonable and affordable costs to his clients. Therefore, in 1990 Dr DeMaris moved to Snohomish and purchased Alpine View Veterinary Hospital. “We give patients the best available care in a family-like environment. My passion is to strengthen the patient and family bond. The greatest part of practice for me is how close my relationships become with my furry patients and their owners.” states Paul.

When Dr. DeMaris is away from AVVH, he and his wife Barb enjoy spending time with their four children. Eric and Liana are students at Washington State University and are both members of the WSU Crew teams. Maddy and Will are busy high school students at Glacier Peak High School. Their family also has two spoiled and well-loved labs, Roxy and Zeke, who love to play fetch. A couple of funny, crazy kitties, Gus and Lucy, round out the DeMaris household. Dr DeMaris also enjoys playing basketball and hiking. He recently climbed Mount Baker, Mount St. Helens, and Mount Rainier.
Dr. Creslin Schultz

Dr. Creslin Schultz graduated with honors from both Oregon State University and Washington State University’s College of Medicine. She and her husband, Ryan, share their home in Snohomish with 2 dogs - a hyper beagle named Lily, a loving pit bull mix named Kaya - and 2 crazy cats named Mamba and Elton. Dr Schultz has been part of our Alpine View family for over 10 years.

Prior to veterinary school, Creslin enjoyed travelling and living abroad in places such as Africa, Europe, Australia, South America and the Middle East. Prior to moving to Washington, Creslin lived in California and worked at a progressive small animal clinic in Davis. Dr. Schultz has a particular interest in behavioral medicine, dermatology, internal medicine, and geriatric care. She is devoted to providing both preventative care and disease treatment. Dr. Schultz is always sure to thoroughly explain various treatment options to owners and involve them in the decision making process.

When Dr. Schultz is not busy at Alpine View, she loves spending time with her husband and pets, hiking, horseback riding, gardening and cooking. She is also an avid long distance runner.

Dr. Rita Bauman has been part of our Alpine View family for 27 years since graduating from Washington State University in 1993. She has since become an absolute asset to Alpine View and our clients. Rita and her husband Steve have 2 children, Mathew and Amanda. They share their home with their cat, White Kitty, and their dog, Tug. Rita enjoys spending time with her family, homeschooling their children, and landscaping their property, a project Rita refers to as “a never-ending work in progress.” Rita has a particular interest in caring for puppies, kittens, and senior cats.

Dr. Shannon Quinn

Dr. Shannon Quinn was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. She grew up in a multi-pet household and knew from a very early age that she wanted to become a veterinarian. Throughout undergrad, she continued to work at her local veterinary clinic and volunteer at various animal shelters. In addition, she was captain of the women’s golf team and a representative for the student athletes for 3 yrs. After graduating from Seattle University with a degree in general science/biology, she pursued her DVM through Ross University located on the very tiny Caribbean island of St Kitts in the West Indies.

Dr Quinn has a passion for internal medicine, surgery, and being there for her clients and her patients during end of life care. She enjoys creating relationships with both her patients and clients and working with them on a one-on-one basis to provide the most understanding and most compassionate care possible. Although Dr Quinn has enjoyed serving the Everett animal community she is eager and excited to begin her career here at Alpine View!
