staff bio



From reading James Herriot novels then doctoring her stuffed animals, Sherry spent most of her days with animals on her mind. She truly feels that a career in the veterinary world was her destiny! Sherry cares for the pets and animal owners of Kamloops every day as a veterinary receptionist.

Born in Saskatchewan, she then headed west to Alberta, then onto British Columbia with her family. She pursued animal-care education immediately after high school and then secured a job at a small-animal clinic in Cloverdale. Sherry worked in a few other small animal practices and spent 2.5 years right next door at the Large Animal Clinic, before joining the Kamloops Veterinary Clinic family in April of 2015.

At home, Sherry owns horses, several cows, a rescued Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix that makes her laugh on a daily basis, and a Border Collie named Tippy. Outside of her interests in the animal-care world, Sherry spends her time… Well, all her time is spent with animals.
