Technician
I joined the veterinary field to help animals. I was always trying to take in strays as a child and it was a lifelong dream to be a technician. I attended Olds College late in life and graduated in 2012. My personal favourite area of vet med is nutrition. It plays a vital role in everything from longevity to recovery from major illnesses. I love the flexibility of my clinic and the team I work with. Every time you are unsure of something the team bands together and researches or shares information they know to come up with a solution. I was always a “dog person” until I met “my” first kitty that loved just me and only me. He opened my heart to the special love a cat can provide for you.
