I began working at Kamloops Veterinary clinic in 2016 as a Kennel Attendant. In 2018, I started the Animal Health Technology program at Thompson Rivers University and graduated in 2020, and have been working as a Registered Veterinary Technologist (RVT) at Kamloops Veterinary Clinic ever since! I chose the Veterinary field after growing up in a home full of animals and working at trail riding stables. Throughout those years, I assisted in attending to horse wounds and training horses and dogs.
Once I heard of the Animal Health Technology program, I knew I wanted to get my foot in the door with a clinic to see what I was getting into! I couldn’t have asked for a better team to join. The technicians at Kamloops Vet Clinic showed me just how exciting the job of an RVT was, and I had no doubt that was the career path I wanted to follow. As an RVT, I love working alongside our doctors with interesting medical cases. I feel very rewarded after successful blood collections, and after giving animals a positive, fear-free experience. I have recently become a Nutritional Advisor through Royal Canin, and love consulting with clients about their pets’ diet and making a plan together. I am also the main face behind the screen of our social media!
When not at work, I can be found adventuring outdoors with my husband and our two dogs, Harvey and Roscoe! Harvey is a six-year-old Heeler/Shepherd mix and Roscoe is a two-year-old Border Collie/Heeler with only three legs!
