I was born in Wales, UK and came to Canada in 1993. Raised three wonderful boys and share my home with two hyperactive Border Collies, Rio & Link, a Maine Coon named Gandalf and a CRAZY Bengal named Crixus.
I've always had a passion for animals and have been in this business a long time. When I'm not at work, I enjoy working out, hiking and agility training.
I joined Acadia Drive Animal Clinic in April 2015.
I love all aspects of Veterinary Medicine but if I had to pick one, it would probably be surgery. After all these years, I still learn something new every day!
My first pet was a kitty named Timmy who was born in the coal shed at my grandmother's house. He lived to a grand old age of 21 years.
What do I love about my job? Who wouldn't enjoy cuddling puppies and kittens all day? Also, I love educating our clients in keeping their pets healthy.
My favourite thing about the clinic is that I have the BEST coworkers here at Acadia Drive. We have a lot of FUN doing what we LOVE! Our team ROCKS!!
A fun fact about me? I have a black belt in karate. I also have a very dry sense of humour and love to make people laugh.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
4. NEW PET OWNERS
