I grew up on a farm in a small town in Northwestern Ontario and that was where my love of animals began. We had beef cattle, a Cocker Spaniel and at one point, had 21 barn cats! I had fun naming them and taking care of them. When I was in 4-H in my early teens, we were taken for a tour of a veterinary clinic and after that visit, I decided I wanted to be in the veterinary industry. I worked at that same clinic after high school for 2 years, then I came out to Alberta to attend Olds College and graduated in 2002 with a diploma in Animal Health Technology.
I joined the clinic in July 2017. I had been a locum here since 2016 and I enjoy working with the staff and clientele here, it also is a plus that I live in the area. I love being able to form relationships with clients and care for their pets. My goal is to make clients feel comfortable that I am caring for their pet the same way I would my care for own pet. My favourite thing about the clinic is that the team here is a bunch of awesome people! My first pet was a barn cat named Snowball.
