Meet Our Veterinarians

Dr. Evelyn Bowden, DVM

Dr. Evelyn Bowden, DVM

Dr. Evelyn Bowden is one of the proud owners of Health & Harmony Animal Hospital. Her Alma Mater is Wittenberg University where she graduated with a B.A. in Biology in 1996. Between undergrad and vet school, she allowed her life experiences to guide her to her next venture, which was to pursue a degree in Veterinary Medicine. She graduated from The Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009, spent her first three years out of school working for a rural mixed animal practice, then pursued her dream of owning her own veterinary practice. She feels fortunate that Dr. Kim West joined her in this pursuit, as they have been devoted friends for almost 20 years! Creating a welcoming, calm, supportive environment by communicating openly with clients and going the extra mile to provide comfort to our patients has been their vision and we hope that you will experience this coming to our clinic.

Dr. Bowden shares her life and home first and foremost with her husband, Chuck, who is a Union Pipefitter of almost 30 years! Her stepson, Zach, is 20 and on his way to taking on and figuring out the world. They also have 3 rescue kitties (Bakey, Pixi, and Buddy) and 2 rescue dogs (Josie and Loki) who keeps them very busy! Their first Doberman (Tanner) will forever remain their hearts.

Dr. Kimberly West, DVM

Dr. Kimberly West, DVM

Dr. Kimberly West graduated from The Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004 and has worked in various small animal veterinary hospitals and animal shelters within the Columbus area.

One of her passions is animal rescue which comes almost inherently; she has many inspiring stories, even about her own pets!

Dr. West is also excited to share the benefits of acupuncture and herbals in a more integrative approach to veterinary medicine, allowing more choices for the care of your animals.

Anyone that has met Dr. West knows that she has never met a stranger!  This is evident in how deeply rooted she is in Columbus, especially within her own neighborhood of Grandview Heights.

Although her roots are in Grandview Heights, those roots extend all the way to Beavercreek, Colorado, where she and her husband, Blake, share time together snowboarding and hiking with their two dogs, Tupelo Honey and Fruitbat. You can now find Dr. West’s darling 3-year-old son, Michael, romping through her house as if he’d always been there!

Dr. Molly Cassandra, DVM

Dr. Molly Cassandra, DVM

Dr. Molly Cassandra received her undergraduate degree from Miami University of Ohio in Zoology and went on to the College of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University, graduating in 2007. After graduation, she and her husband, Dr. Kevin Cox, moved to the Pacific Northwest and lived in the Seattle area for several years. She started her career in a small animal practice in Bellevue, WA, while helping her husband manage and start two small animal hospitals in the Redmond, WA area. Dr. Cassandra made her way back to the Columbus area in 2010 and became a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Community Practice Department at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She joined the Health and Harmony team in 2017. She is very excited to provide exceptional medical care to pets within her local community.

Dr. Cassandra enjoys preventive medicine, internal medicine and providing behavioral support. She became certified in Low-Stress Handling for patients in 2016. Dr. Cassandra resides locally and lives with her husband, daughter, Josephine, cat, “Bluebelle,” and dogs, “Willy” and “Stan.” She enjoys spending time traveling, cooking, being active and enjoying the outdoors.

Dr. Nellie Wilbers, DVM

Dr. Nellie Wilbers, DVM

Dr. Nellie Wilbers stayed in her home town of Columbus to attend The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She graduated in 2015 with a passion for animal behavior and continued deepening her knowledge in order to become certified in Fear Free vet care and Low Stress Handling.

Dr. Nellie began her career working in shelter medicine but her desire for client and patient-centered care led her to provide in-home behavior consultations through her own practice and in-home end-of-life care through Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice. Providing care in such an intimate environment where her clients and patients were comfortable, allowed her to strengthen her bond with them. Her heart then led her to Health & Harmony Animal Hospital where she could continue working closely with clients and patients in their “home away from home.” The relaxed atmosphere allows her to sit on the floor with her patients to build a relationship of trust while spending time conversing with families to understand their needs and concerns.

Dr. Nellie is excited to be a part of Health & Harmony’s compassionate team to help you and your pets live happy and healthy lives together! When she is not helping pets and their families, Dr. Nellie enjoys spending quality time with her pit bull Mars, sibling cats Elliot and Arya, foster kittens Topaz and Jasper, and using positive reinforcement to train the Koi and Shubunkin fish in her pond. She also enjoys yoga, permaculture gardening, ballroom dancing, knitting, camping, and biking.
