Animal Care Attendant
I am an ACA at Van Isle Veterinary Hospital and I work as a kennel assistant. I decided to go into the veterinary field for many reasons. When I was little, I always wanted to become a veterinarian and I still hope to pursue that dream. I care about animals very much and I feel that it is important to take care of them and make sure they are happy and healthy. I have not yet graduated, but when I am graduated from high school, I plan to become a veterinarian. I joined the Van Isle clinic starting as a volunteer on March 1st, but since then I have been hired as an employee and started on July 6th. I am interested in all kinds of veterinary medicine, but I am sure I will find something I am more interested in, as my time here proceeds. My first pet was an orange tabby cat named Mr. Kitty. What I love most about my job is the aspect of being able to help the animals that come in for help. Whether I am helping with a nail clipping or a recovery for a surgery, it feels emotionally rewarding to be able to help out the animals that come in. My favourite thing about the clinic is the great people I work with. When I started volunteering at Van Isle Veterinary Hospital, my co-workers made me feel included and their overall attitude at the clinic was amazing. A fun fact about myself is that I collect vinyl records!
