RVT

I grew up with animals in western Canada, spending most of my time in the mountains. I followed my curiosity around Asia, where I began my life and career caring for animals.

I was first a zookeeper in SE Asia caring for big cats and bears. While assisting veterinarians daily, I quickly confirmed my career. This was followed by treating calves for a season on a dairy farm in Australia. I then returned to rural Thailand to help a struggling safari park. Introducing basic enrichment and medicine to improve the lives of neglected animals.

Years later I returned home to complete my education in Veterinary Technology. Happily settling in Halifax with my cat Pickles.

The best part of being an RVT is advocating for any animal’s health and well being. I find the whole process of surgery rewarding, from running diagnostics, anesthesia to recovery.

Fun fact: In my spare time, I participate in wildlife rehabilitation. At Hope For Wildlife's Animal Hospital as a technician.
