Meet our Emergency Team


Dr. Solene Moreton

Dr. Moreton was born in France and moved to the United States as a young child. She maintains strong ties with family in Europe and, of course, speaks perfect French. After receiving an undergraduate degree in science from UC Davis, Dr. Moreton graduated from Kansas State University Veterinary School in 2003. A small animal internship in San Diego introduced her to the challenges of emergency medicine and she never looked back.

After work, Dr. Moreton loves spending time with her family and young son. You may see her participating in road races, trail runs, and century bike rides. She just completed the Arizona Ironman and is looking for new racing challenges in the Bay Area.

Dr. Mackenzie Adams

Dr. Mackenzie Adams is a native of Seattle and moved to San Francisco with her human and cat family. She attended veterinary school at Colorado State University and then pursued specialty training in Equine and Large Animal Surgery at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine. Realizing that her heart was with the smaller members of the animal kingdom, Dr. Adams has come back to the west coast to pursue small animal emergency medicine and small animal surgery. In her free time, Dr. Adams loves exploring the outdoors, running, and doing yoga. She is excited to be living in such an amazing and beautiful city.

Dr. Nate Kane

Dr. Kane is a Bay Area native, growing up in Oakland. He attended veterinary school at Colorado State University, graduating in 2013, and pursued specialty training in avian medicine and surgery for several years following veterinary school. With a special interest in emergency medicine, applied physiology and surgery, Dr. Kane is excited to be working once again with dogs and cats (in addition to the feathered/'exotic' ones) in need of urgent care. In his free time Dr. Kane enjoys visiting with family, bicycle racing, home brewing beer, and live music.

Dr. Robin Kelly

Dr. Kelly completed veterinary School at UC Davis before entering private practice after additional internship training at Bay Area Veterinary Specialists. She enjoys all aspects of emergency medicine and especially enjoys all things related to eyes! Her interest in ophthalmology may lead to specialty training in the future. When she is not at work, Dr. Kelly enjoys riding horses and exploring our beautiful city.

Dr. Vanessa Chen

Dr. Chen grew up in California, Massachusetts and parts of Asia. She graduated from veterinary school at UC Davis and completed a rotating internship in Washington State Veterinary School. Since then, she has focused on emergency and critical care.

Compassionate veterinary care has been her devotion. However, during her time off, she loves traveling, hiking, cooking, dancing and contemplating how to acquire a bambino cat.
