Kristen Dunford, RVT

Hospital Manager

Kristen started her career in Veterinary Medicine as an RVT back in 2009 and moved into management in 2013. Kristen soon discovered her passion was not only patients but also; people!  Kristen was born and raised in Nova Scotia and it’s easy to see her east coast character in her patient and client care. What Kristen really loves about management is being able to make connections with our clients and the ability to ensure South Burnaby has a passionate and supportive team environment.  The moment Kristen arrives each day it’s easy to see she really loves being a leader at SBVH!

When Kristen has some downtime, you’ll find her spending time with her husband Corey and her two children Mya and Carter. Kristen also a furry family as well; Beans a 14-year-old PomXchi, Jax a 2-year-old golden retriever and Piglet 6month old Frenchton!
