Growing up, I was only allowed to have pet fish and hamsters (so many hamsters) and even as a child, I always knew that I wanted to work with animals.
I had originally wanted to become a veterinarian until I job-shadowed at Island Vet Hospital in 2010 for my high school program. It was here that I was introduced to the role of a veterinary technician; I knew immediately that this was what I wanted to do. I graduated from high school, went on to pursue post-secondary education in an animal health technology program, and finally became a Registered Veterinary Technician.
Now, I’ve come full circle back to where my passion for being an RVT all began! I am always learning new things and further developing my skills so I can better help clients and their pets.
I enjoy spending my spare time with my dog, Nyx, whether it’s watching a movie, going to the park, playing video games, or just napping together! He is my first dog, so I am also learning first-hand the challenges and joys of having a beloved furry companion.
