Registered Veterinary Technician
I grew up with all kinds of animals, and have always had a love for them. I graduated in 2009 from Thompson Rivers University. I was introduced to veterinary medicine through work experience at my high school and decided to apply to the veterinary technician program after graduation. Van Isle was always our family’s regular veterinary hospital growing up, and during technician school, I completed one of my working practicums at Van Isle Veterinary Hospital. I was excited to officially join the team as a registered veterinary technician in 2009, with my special area of interest being canine behaviour. My first pet was Maverick, the best mutt ever. I love working closely with the animals, as well as the wide variety of skills we utilize every day. My favourite thing about the clinic is the variety of interesting cases we see daily and the great relationships we make with our patients. Fun fact about myself, I enjoy spending most of my free time riding my two beautiful horses or walking my three dogs.
We have seen Dr. Muzzin several times. She is absolutely wonderful, very knowledgeable and compassionate. Would highly recommend!
