I started working at Centennial in May 2017.
I’ve worked at a few different pet stores for a total of four years. I was a veterinary assistant for two years and I co-taught the veterinary office assistant course for two years. I've had pets (fish, dogs, cats, birds, hamsters and degus) all of my life.
I work with animals because I've loved them for as long as I can remember. I got my first goldfish when I was five years old and my first dog when I was six. The veterinarians are always helping me learn more and the animals are always reminding me how special they are.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my pets, reading and watching Netflix. I love being outside in the summer, hanging out with my friends and family. I love tattoos.
I have a few pets of my own:
- Penny – Pomeranian 4 years old
- Snickers – DSH 4 years old
- Lu – Crested gecko 6 years old
- Fish – African Cichlids – ranging from 5 months – 5 years old.
A memorable story? When I was 6, my family and I were walking in Kildonan Park and I met a Great Dane for the first time. He was a Harlequin Great Dane and was as tall as me! I'll never forget how excited and in awe I was. It made me love dogs even more.
