Kennel Assistant

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.
