Ashley Atkinson

Veterinary Technician
Everyone that knows me, calls me "Ashley, the crazy dog lady." Dogs are my life and my passion, I have an English Springer Spaniel named Spencer who is my absolute best friend; there is nothing we don't do together! Spencer is a Certified Therapy dog and I also have a cute little Poodle named Jaxon. I graduated from Grande Prairie Regional College in Alberta in May 2016. I have always had a big passion for animals, it was always my dream to work in the veterinary field. I joined the clinic in September of 2017. My favourite areas of interest would definitely have to be animal behaviour and canine rehabilitation. My favourite thing about the clinic is the staff. I consider my coworkers family, everyone is always ready to help you when needed. There are so many things I love about my job, but my favourite thing is patient care. I love making a difference in animals' lives. I love the nature of the job, always fast-paced and keeps you on your toes at all times; I also really enjoy emergency care. Fun fact about myself, I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, I spend my spare time teaching group and private classes. My first pet was my Black Labrador and Collie mix named Parker, who I had adopted from the Moncton SPCA.


Rebecca Schofield Community Event

Riverview Animal Hospital helped last week to build the Rebecca Schofield All World Super Play Park. It was a huge community event with over 2, 583 volunteers that built a giant accessible playground for all of Greater Moncton's Children to enjoy. Rebecca Schofield is Riverview New Brunswick's international celebrity. In 2016, at 16 years old Rebecca became ill, what was thought to be the flu turn into a diagnosis of Brain Cancer. In the short time before her death in 2018, Rebecca started a global movement, by inspiring people around the world to simply be kind to one another. Her hashtag #beccatoldmeto is to this day still seen all over the world as people perform random acts of kindness. Her legacy lives on making the world a better place one act of kindness at a time. We were very proud to be able to do our small part in helping to build the playground. We know that Becca's legacy will carry on for years to come, and I know the team at RAH will think of her every time we see the smiles of children as they play on their new beautiful playground.
