Registered Veterinary Technologist

I graduated in 2009 and joined the clinic in 2015. My favourite thing about the clinic is that we are a gold level, cat-friendly practice, certified by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. We also work closely with the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society, an organization I love to support.

Although I grew up with a family dog, ever since I can remember, I wanted a kitten. I asked my parents year after year, but the answer was always, "dad's allergic." When I was 12-years-old, I started asking for a pet snake. Instead, my mom trying to compromise, said I could get a kitten instead. Apparently, dad was not allergic but used that as an excuse to not allow me my kitten. I guess in the end, he liked cats better than snakes or being constantly pestered about it by his daughter. Daisy was a medium haired black kitten, with a white spot on her chest. We spent 15 inseparable years together until she passed away a few years ago. She was with me through junior and senior high school, college and my wedding. She holds a very dear spot in my heart.

What I love most about my job is that when I come to work every day, I know I am surrounded by cats (the best part), my co-workers who love cats as much as I do, and some of the most amazing clients and people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I feel like I have finally found my people!

Fun fact about myself is that I currently share my home with my husband and our four cats: Sneaker, a 17-year-old Domestic Shorthair brown tabby, who is being held together by many pills. Sonny, a 13-year-old Domestic Shorthair orange tabby with asthma and FeLV. Margaret (named after Margaret Mead), a 10-month-old seal point Siamese, who we nicknamed 'Hurricane.' And Jane (named after Jane Goodall), a 10-month-old black and white Domestic Shorthair, who is the most intelligent cat I have ever met! On my spare time, I like to bird watch and explore in our beautiful Calgary parks, garden, crochet, and read.

Let’s Talk Litter Boxes

Cats can end up in shelters or rescue operations for a number of reasons, but one of the most common reasons is because they don’t use the litter box.
