Veterinary Assistant
I have known that I wanted to work with animals since I was three years old, and have worked as a vet assistant since I became certified at Vancouver Island University in 2018. It is impossible to say which area of my job I enjoy the most as I enjoy every part of animal medicine from the moment you meet the pet to the moment they leave. Helping animals is a true passion of mine and it is such a privilege to work alongside such committed and passionate people.

Fun Fact: I'm a huge Star Trek fan.
