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.
