Christy Haines grew up in Upcountry Maui and graduated from Seabury Hall in Makawao. She has a degree in biology from the University of Virginia and received her DVM from Colorado State University. She then completed an equine internship at Blue Ridge Equine Clinic, a referral and surgical center for horses in Virginia. She moved back home to do her part to take care of Maui’s community in 2021. She currently treats large animals (horses, goats, sheep, alpacas and cows), and is trained in acupuncture for both large and small animals. She is also available to help elderly or sick patients pass on with dignity with in-home euthanasia.
Christy loves spending time with her horse, Gavin, and her dog, Dash. She grew up riding hunter jumpers on Maui and switched to playing polo in college and veterinary school. Now she and Gavin mostly enjoy riding through the fields near the clinic. She also enjoys stand-up paddle boarding with her family and snowboarding when she has the chance.
