Becky, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technologist

Growing up on a beef farm, I have always enjoyed working with animals. We were lucky to always have a mix of critters: dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, pigs, and horses. I went to Thompson River University’s Animal Health Technology program, graduating in 2017.

I started as a Registered Veterinary Technician at Kamloops Veterinary Clinic right out of school in May 2017. I enjoy pretty much all aspects of the job, but I particularly love difficult, but satisfying blood draws; helping in surgery; anesthesia; taking x-rays; and of course puppies and kittens. My favorite part of the job is getting the in-clinic sick patients to eat food, it is so rewarding, and it means they get to go home soon.

I have an 8-year-old cat named Tinker, which I adopted from TRU in 2015. I also have the sweetest Jack Russell Terrier named Zeena, which came to the clinic in the fall of 2020. Zeena and I enjoy hiking the Kamloops trails with our person Jared.
