Hannah R

I grew up in a beautiful small town on the South Shore, I moved to the city when I was 18 to start pursuing my career. I have since lived in the city and have built a life here for myself. I wanted to work in an environment that gives me the chance to help other people and their pets, this has been a goal of mine. As a VA who works both at the front and as an OPN has taught me a lot over the years, you build a strong relationship with the client and the patient. We can be with our clients and their pets for years and years, to have that bond and trust is what makes me love what I do here. I attended the Eastern College located in Halifax and graduated in 2013 as a Veterinary Administrative assistant. Working in this industry and being able to do what I do here is what makes me love my job, everything we do here has lots of meaning and I find it hard to pick just one. When clients come into the clinic with their pets I want them to feel like we are their second family. The thing I love most about my job is working as an OPN. It is something I've been doing since starting here in 2013, it has taught me a lot, especially working with Dr. Dibblee as exotics have always interested me. You get to learn new information every day and working alongside a team that has so much knowledge and compassion when it comes to the care of animals can be really special. A fun fact about is that I love to travel with my animals as much as I can, I want to make sure they live their best life for the time they are with me. We spend a lot of time down on the South Shore during the summer months soaking up the sun at the cottage and swimming in the lake.
