I grew up on a dairy farm surrounded by cats, a dog, and of course cows. Having that kind of upbringing really put in perspective a love of animals and their well being. In high school, I did my co-op placement at an animal shelter.
In 2011 I attended Sheridan College and enrolled in their animal care program. I highly recommend this program as they teach you all aspects of animal care and also have their own animal centre on site so that you can put into practice the skills they have taught you. I graduated in 2012 with honours and set about entering into the veterinary field. I have worked in the veterinary field for 5 years as well as worked in a boarding facility as well as research labs.
I began working at Coxwell Animal Clinic on Oct 15, 2018. There are a number of things I love about working at Coxwell from the different animals who come in with a number of different ailments and seeing the progress of their recovery. Its very satisfying to see how our efforts can make their lives better.
