She graduated with Honors from California State University, Chico and went on to Ross University to earn her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.

With the encouragement of other local equine veterinarians, she founded Coast Equine Veterinary Services, a mobile practice in 2008 providing care to horses while also working at a local small animal hospital. She began offering care to dog and cat patients in 2012 to meet the growing demand to care for the entire animal family. She incorporated acupuncture into her patients' care in 2015 after attending an intensive Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course by One Health SIM. In 2019 Coast Veterinary Service built a state of the art facility in Scotts Valley to better meet the needs of her small animal patients and changed her business name to Coast Veterinary Services to reflect this change. Dr. Phinn lives in Santa Cruz County with her husband, son and daughter. They share their lives with three horses, three rescue dogs, a cat and chickens. She enjoys spending time with her family and watching her children grow, laugh and discover the world. She enjoys trail riding, camping and snowboarding in Tahoe.
