I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, Ontario in 2015 and joined Centennial Animal Hospital in April 2017. My animal experience beyond my personal pets began at the Ontario SPCA where I helped socialize cats and walk dogs. Since, then I’ve had various positions at different clinics during and after school. During school, I also spent a month in Guatemala volunteering with different rescue organizations.
The human-animal bond can be so unique and profound and getting to help foster that is an extremely rewarding experience. During my first year out of school, a man came in on emergency and his dog was very sick. It turned out she had a pyometra (a pus-filled uterus) and needed surgery. Fortunately, we were able to perform the surgery and she recovered very well. Seeing the joy and excitement in both the man and dog when she was going home is what makes this profession so special for me.
At the clinic, I have a special interest in surgery and dentistry. Outside of the clinic, I enjoy traveling, soccer, frisbee and hockey. At home, I have 2 cats, Stanley and Eddie.
