From a young age, I always wanted to work with animals in some capacity. I like the interaction with owners so a Veterinary administrative assistant seemed like the perfect fit for me. I graduated in 2006 from a Veterinary Administrative Assistant course from CompuCollege.

The area of veterinary medicine that I am interested in is Feline behaviour and feline friendly practice in the clinic.

The thing I love most about my job is educating owners on their pet's health and care.

A fun fact about myself is that I have a special place in my heart for orange cats and they are the highlight of my day when they come in for care. I also share my home with my husband, 2 children, and 2 handsome orange cats.
