I've always worked in some capacity in the medical industry. Fun fact: I used to make mechanical heart valves! I have over 13 years of experience in veterinary hospitals and clinics and a certification as a Veterinary Office Assistant. My hands have touched many facets of the veterinary world including reception, assisting with surgeries, assisting with technicians, inventory management and administration.
I moved to Airdrie in 2016 and kept hearing wonderful things about the clinic. When a position became available, I decided to apply. I joined the team in August 2017 and haven't looked back!
I am excited when I get the opportunity to watch the doctors in action during surgeries. I love getting to know the clients, to watch their pets grow and to be a cheering squad during the good times and a supportive shoulder during the tough times.
My favourite day of the year is Halloween because I get to decorate the house, dress up and hand out goodies to the little goblins and ghouls that knock on my door. I currently have a 10-year-old Donskoy which is a hairless cat. Her name was Firefly, and she never sleeps on her side. I also have a cat named Izzie. Many of our clients know Izzie as she was fostered here at the clinic for 2 months. She is now a permanent member of my family.
