Veterinary Assistant

I graduated from McMaster University in 2002 and from Dalhousie University in 2008. I joined the Clappison Team in 2012.

My favourite thing about the Clinic the collegial atmosphere, our superb veterinarians. What I love most about my job is the satisfaction of putting in a good day’s work.

Fun fact about me:
While relatively new to Clappison Animal Hospital, I began my career in animal health over 13 years ago. An alumnus of McMaster University and Dalhousie University, I completed my undergraduate degree in Art History prior to her graduate work in Library Sciences and Information Management, where the focus of my thesis research was on information resources for veterinarians. My interests are varied: including collecting rare books for my ever-growing library, politics, hockey, British pottery, and gardening. Hopelessly devoted to my cats, especially Jerry, her Bengal, I am a self-professed cat lover.
