Reception, ACA

I grew up on a hobby farm in Langley, BC, where we raised chickens, sheep, cows and a couple horses; I always enjoyed being around animals from an early age. I completed my veterinary assistant course shortly after high school at Granville Business College in 2011 and immediately started working in practice. In 2014, I moved to Edmonton and began working in a veterinary emergency facility there, which then grew my passion for emergency medicine.

I moved from Edmonton in August 2016 and joined KVC in September 2016. I joined KVC as it was one of the only clinics in town with extensive diagnostics such as ultrasound, dental x-ray and endoscopy. A special area of the veterinary industry that I am interested in is emergency medicine, nutrition and parasitology.

I love that every day is something different; No two days are the same. I love when you are able to surgically or nutritionally fix a problem a pet is having. My favourite thing about the clinic is the fact that it is completely acceptable to squish puppies and kittens on a daily basis.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, camping, hunting and spending time with my daughter and fiancé. I also plan to take the registered veterinary technician course in the future as I want to further my education in animal healthcare. I live with my two fur babies, Tikka, a rescue pup from Edmonton and Fisher, a spunky kitten that thinks he's a dog.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

Last updated: Monday, May 25, 2020

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. Please bring a cell phone to your appointment. If you don't have a cell phone, please let us know and we will email you a history form to fill out prior to your appointment. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 250.374.1485. Be prepared to wait in your vehicle until our exam room is ready for your visit. Our team will arrange to meet you at the front door or at your vehicle. Please transfer your pet without any accoutrements (no clothing, toys, or other accessories). All cats must come in carriers. The doctor will call you on your cell phone to discuss the treatment plan.

2. We can now see all cases by appointment only.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Monday to Saturday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
With recent operation changes, we have decided to close for lunch daily between 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm. This closure ensures our staff gets a much-needed break and a chance to reorganize orders and catch up. Thank you for your understanding!

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the Online Store, visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
