Mariko

Assistant

Mariko has been working at Kamloops Vet Clinic since May 2018 as a technician assistant, Client Care Representative and kennel attendant. She has been working in the Veterinary Industry for 7 years. Helping pets have better quality lives and helping their owners give them the best care possible fills her metaphorical bucket. Working with animals has always been her purpose and she found her passion fulfilled when she stepped into veterinary medicine. Mariko is drawn to physical therapy and canine behaviour cases - assisting our patients have less stressful vet visits makes her day. Mariko adores the Kamloops Vet Clinic and how compassionate and caring the team is to clients, patients and each other.

Fun Fact: When she is not at the clinic (a rare occurrence), you can find her out on the farm with her two XL indoor dogs, adorable cat and three horses. On the even rarer days when she cannot be outside you will find her nose buried in a book.
