Registered Veterinary Technician
I went to the veterinary technician program at Douglas College in Coquitlam, BC. From there, I took the VTNE to become registered, then moved back to the island where I grew up. I started at Van Isle on October 4th, 2016. I love how rewarding this job is. Although there are a lot of emotionally and physically challenging days, there are also many happy and exciting days that remind me of why I am in this industry. My favourite thing about this hospital is the diversity of cases that walk through our doors. Every day is different and therefore my knowledge and skills are constantly tested in a variety of ways. I also love the people I work with, there is not a day that goes by that I do not feel supported or appreciated.
