I grew up in One Hundred Mile House, where I was surrounded by many animals, including at my first job at a trail riding/horse rescue stable. I’ve always had a passion for animal behaviour and spent many hours training my own horse, and later on my own puppy.
It wasn’t until after graduating high school, that I discovered the many job opportunities within the veterinary industry. I joined the Kamloops Veterinary Clinic team in April of 2016 as a Kennel Attendant and have continued to excel in the last two years. I have been trained on reception, and am registered to begin the Animal Health Technology program this fall! Working with such an amazing group really inspired me to upgrade my high school courses and pursue my dreams of being an animal health technician. What I love about our clinic is that we work together as a family, all with the same end goal in mind; to do everything in our power to give our patients the best care they need.
I have had many pets over the years, including a Labrador cross and a cat that both lived until 17-years-old! My horse lives at home with my parents in One Hundred Mile House, along with our family dog Milo, who I trained as a pup. Here with me in Kamloops, I have my Blue Heeler German Shepherd cross, Harvey, who came to me through my work when he was seized from a family as a cruelty case. I couldn’t have asked for a better dog to rescue. He has become such an obedient dog over the last two years and gives the best cuddles you could ask for.
If I’m not at work, you will find me hiking with Harvey, camping, and fishing with my fiancé. I also have a passion for photography and training horses which I hope to pursue more fully once I am done school to become an animal health technician.
Kennel cough is a highly contagious upper respiratory infection, that can be caused by a variety of different viruses and bacteria. The kennel cough vaccine available is able to protect against one of the most common sources of kennel cough, but just like with our human influenza vaccine, it cannot cover every strain.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective July 14, 2020 one member of the pet's family will be allowed inside our clinic as long as a mask is worn while inside and physical distancing guidelines are followed. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. When the doctor is ready for your appointment, a staff member will come out and let you know.
We are happy to say that as of July 14th, we are now able to allow ONE member of your household to accompany your pet inside for their examination, as long as you bring a mask of your own to wear while inside the clinic.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
4. OPERATING HOURS ARE BACK TO NORMAL
Monday to Saturday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
We are no longer closed over the lunch hour.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
