Registered Veterinary Technician

My passion for animal care is why I decided to pursue a career in the veterinary industry. I graduated in June 2016, from Oulton College in Moncton, NB. Clappison has a good reputation and the staff are friendly and supportive. I joined in September 2016. A special area of the veterinary industry that interests me the most is dentistry.

What I love most about my job is the diversity of daily tasks -no two days are alike. My favourite thing about the clinic is the fun and supportive staff.

Fun fact about me is that I am a proud pet parent of 4 rescue animals -2 cats, and 2 dogs- all adopted from the SPCA in Moncton, NB. My first pet was a hamster named Freddie.
