My journey into the realm of animal behaviour started with Gertrude, a devoted Eurasian collared dove who shared nearly two decades of companionship. However, it was a captivating blue-eyed Dalmatian, exhibiting autistic-like behaviours, that sparked my profound interest in this field. Recognizing this as my true calling, I embarked on the rewarding path of a veterinary behaviourist.

Graduating from the University of Montreal in 1988 marked the beginning of a fulfilling journey. While my role as a behaviour consultant at Riverview Animal Health Centre began in 2018, it wasn’t until 2020 that I officially joined this remarkable team. Specializing in veterinary behaviour, I take great pleasure in assisting pets and their owners, fueled by a constant desire to delve deeper into the world of animal treatments and understanding.

The family-like atmosphere at this hospital is truly a blessing, creating a supportive and collaborative environment.
