Veterinary Technician
I attended and completed with honours the Animal Health Technology Program in Kamloops, BC. My diploma is actually issued from University College of the Cariboo before it became Thompson Rivers University. Yes, that means I graduated many years ago! My interests lie in the practical realm versus the academic theory realm. I love working hands-on with the pets: radiology, blood collection and analysis, restraint, surgical prep, induction, and assisting. My true passion is dentistry. It's exciting to know and see how much younger, happier, and healthier pets look and behave after dental concerns are addressed and corrected. Fun Fact: I have volunteered with wildlife relocation projects and assisted with health checks, blood collections, and fecal collections for health analysis for Bighorn Sheep with the BC Ministry of Wildlife. I have also volunteered for the Mexi-can Vet project. Both projects have reinforced why I chose this career - No matter the species, habitat, or country it lives in, I want to make a positive difference in an animal's life.
