I have always had a passion for all animals. Growing up on a farm in a small town I had my fair share of animals such as horses, donkeys, goats, birds, bunnies, cows, cats, dogs, etc. My younger sister and I were often found in the paddocks and pens hanging out with all of the animals. I realized at a young age I wanted to surround myself in this environment, as I was so fulfilled with animals around me.
After high school I took the veterinary assistant program and received my certificate. I worked for a few large animal practice veterinarians specializing in equine; including an extremely talented reproductive veterinarian before moving here to Upper Canada Animal Hospital. I feel truly blessed to be employed at Upper Canada Animal Hospital with such a welcoming, caring and compassionate work family. It’s such a great feeling being excited for each new day at work!
My husband JJ and I currently have just 1 fur baby at the moment. His name is Chilly, he’s an 11 year old that thinks he’s 3, off track thoroughbred. He enjoys hanging out at Green Oaks farm where he is boarded with his two paddock mates Ciara and Daphne. Additionally he allows Smoothie and Fluffy the black cats to lay on top of his hay net and his back.
In my spare time I love being active hiking, horseback riding, skating, swimming, reading and learning new things. My husband and I also love travelling to new destinations, one of which was Italy, where I cannot wait to return to!
I look very forward to this chapter of my life being at Upper Canada Animal Hospital and getting to know all of our clients and their fur babies!
