Dr. Nottingham completed an undergraduate degree in Microbiology at Montana State University and a one year internship in Medical Technology at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Washington. Following his graduation, he moved to Bellingham to work in St. Luke’s Hospital laboratory. After several years of rewarding work in the laboratory, Dr. Nottingham elected to continue his education. He applied and was accepted to the College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University, graduating with honors in 1982. Following graduation, Dr. Nottingham worked at Parkway Veterinary Clinic for several years, learning elements of small animal practice. Then, Dr. Rick Williams offered Sig the opportunity to manage and then buy All Creatures Veterinary Clinic in 1985. Later that year the family was complete with his wife, Kathryn, 3 girls and a boy.
In 1996, All Creatures Veterinary Clinic merged with Animal Care Hospital and Drs. Coe and Eileen Lindner and continues as All Creatures Animal Hospital today.
Dr. Nottingham’s hobbies include almost all sports, especially football and basketball. He has been a high school basketball official in Pierce County for fifteen years working with this Western Washington Basketball Officials Association and the WOA. He also enjoys fishing, and other outdoor activities, reading, and spending time with the family. Last but not least, he enjoys playing the accordion-although not very well, and much to the dismay of some family members!
