Receptionist

When did you start at Centennial: July 2016

Your position: Bilingual Veterinary Office Assistant (Mandarin)

Any relevant animal experience:

Volunteering and working with Darcy’s ARC which is an animal rescue shelter. In the shelter, I focused on animal care and behaviour.

Why you work with animals and what you enjoy about working with the vets/animals.

I am motivated by helping an owner to understand the needs and care for their pet as they are part of the family. It brings me so much joy and satisfaction knowing that both owner and pet are living happily together.

What your interests are outside of work

I like to help out at animal shelters such D’arcy’s ARC and Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre.  Taking my dog for a hike is also one of the most enjoyable activities outside of work.
