I graduated in 1988 from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I love the veterinary profession and have been a clinician for 30 years. I am still keen to come to work! I joined Van Isle Veterinary Hospital in February 2018 and what I love about the clinic is that it has a lot to offer me because there are many excellent clinicians here and a great client base. The Island is beautiful and the weather is mild. The areas of veterinary medicine that interest me the most are ultrasound, dentistry, surgery and medicine. What I love my job is the variety and the need for constant learning over the span of my career. My first pets were cats and horses. I was raised on a farm and I previously lived in Alberta, where my husband and I own a ranch with over 200 cows.
