Emma

CRS/OPA

Growing up here in Halifax, Nova Scotia, I had a passion for working with animals from a very early age. A large portion of my childhood was spent caring for my “patients” (my abundance of stuffed animals). My passion for working with animals led me to Truro, NS, where I obtained my BSc in Agricultural Science with a major in Animal Sciences. After graduating with my degree, I completed a wildlife rehabilitation internship program at Hope for Wildlife in Seaforth, NS. Shortly afterwards, I explored a few different occupations across the Maritime provinces; an Animal Care Technician at Memorial University in Newfoundland and then a Ruminant Nutritionist in Prince Edward Island, before deciding to settle back in Nova Scotia. I packed my bags, this time accompanied by my new fur-baby, Cedric (pictured above), and searched for a job in my hometown. I was excited to hear of a job opening at The Fairview Animal Hospital and was thrilled to be given the opportunity to join this amazing team as CRS/OPA. I truly believe I have found the job that perfectly balances what I enjoy most; working with and helping to care for animals and interacting with a very diverse group of coworkers and clients. My favourite part of this job is that I continue to learn something new every single day.

A fun fact about me is that I spend a lot of my free time on my boyfriend’s dairy farm (who I met at university while completing my degree) in Gore, NS. I love helping out around the farm, naming each and every cow, and especially enjoy getting to bottle-feed cute calves.
