I graduated in 2003 and joined West Hill Animal Clinic the same year. Areas of interest for me are surgery and animal nursing. Working with animals as a technician is one of the most rewarding jobs. Being able to work with the amazing staff, clients and patients at West Hill Animal Clinic is an extra bonus. My first pet was a Terrier mix named T.K. Which was short for mine and my sister's names, Tanya and Kim. The most rewarding thing about being a technician at West Hill is nursing our patients back to health and making a difference in their stay at the clinic. I also enjoy being able to assist in surgical procedures. Before graduating from St. Clair, I spent a year as an assistant groomer, and I continue to groom my own dogs at home, in my spare time. I have two dogs Dotty and Tom Jones, Bichon/Shih Tzu mix, and a cat named Scruffy. One of my favourite past times is spending time up at the cottage with my pets and family.
