Veterinary Technician
From a very young age, I have always been very interested in the care of helping animals. In 2014 I had taken the Cooperative Education course in High School and loved what the job had entailed. Two years later, I began working at Riverview Animal Hospital as an assistant. In 2017, I took the Veterinary Technician course at Oulton College. What I love most about my job is working with amazing staff and knowing I helped care for an animal in need. My favourite thing about the clinic is the positive atmosphere I am surrounded around. Fun fact about me is that I love to be outdoors, I spend every summer at a local race track watching my dad race, and my cat is the inspiration for becoming a veterinary technician. My first animal is a black and white cat, named Nick.
