As a child I was more often found playing with the animals (be it our pets or the wild ones) than I was with a human friend. That is still true to this day.
I began working in a grooming salon as a bather when I was twelve years old and continued this job all through high school. While in high school I also took on a job as a veterinary assistant at the local clinic. I continued to work these positions through college when I would return home to visit.
I attended Northern College of Applied Arts and Technology where I obtained my certificates with honours throughout in the Animal Grooming, Veterinary Assistant, and Veterinary Technician programs.
While in college I worked with rescues and fostered many dogs, assisted with re-homing and networking, and also adopted a few of my own pets. Today I find myself, after several years of work in the grooming industry, working at Upper Canada Animal Hospital as an RVT! The amazing team here has welcomed me with open arms and I am so happy to be part of this family!
