Client Care Specialist / Veterinary Assistant

I graduated from the Veterinary Assistant program at Maritime Business College in 2021. I’ve always loved animals and being able to help them out was something that I was passionate about.

The staff is always incredibly welcoming, insightful, compassionate, and supportive. The clients that come to the clinic also make it a wonderful experience. Animal behaviour and Animal Anatomy and Physiology are two fields that I have interests in and luckily with the staff at Westwood Hills, I am able to learn so much more about them.

currently share my home with my affectionate tuxedo cat Annie, my sharp gold Goldendoodle Bowseph, and my wacky abstract Goldendoodle Flip.
