I have always cared about the well being of all animals, so I love the line of work I am in. It all started when I was young as my parents always allowed me to have many different animals at home. I started off in the animal care field as a co-op student at a clinic in Toronto. I was hired by the clinic as a full time employee and worked there for 10 years until I started a family. I started working evenings and weekends at the Veterinary Emergency Clinic. This is where I first met Dr. Spence. I heard Erin had opened a clinic in Etobicoke and contacted her. The rest is history!
I was born in Toronto and have lived in Etobicoke my whole life. I am still an Etobicoke resident, my family and I have been in the same home for over 15 years. I currently have a dog named Cookie – a malti-poo who comes to work with me. Believe it or not she is allergic to cats! I also have a cockatiel named Alfalfa that likes to torment Cookie at home
In my spare time I volunteer at my children’s school as vice-chair of the parents committee. I also offer services for pet sitting and fostering unwanted pets, helping to find them forever homes. I think it is important to foster unwanted pets to make sure they know that there are good people out there who love them.
