Why veterinary medicine? It allows me to indulge two of my favorite things: a love for animals, and a love of teaching.
My first career was as a high school science teacher, but through a quirky series of events and job adventures, I found myself working in a veterinary hospital as a trained "off the street" employee. Wanting to know more, I found out about the process of becoming a certified technician. After two years of study at Thompson Rivers University, I graduated at the top of my class and was excited to start working as a technician.
I love all the aspects of my job, and having a chance to work with a skilled and cooperative team is a blessing.
Currently, I am working through my Canine Rehabilitation Certificate Program through the University of Tennessee, and look forward to helping our canine patients in a whole new way.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, training our border collies to compete in sheep dog trials, and horseback riding. I'm a bit of a hobby-a-holic, so I won't mention baking, photography, handicrafts...
