Kirsten Marchand

Veterinary Assistant

Hello, I’m Kirsten, a Veterinary Assistant at Riverview Animal Health Centre. Originally hailing from Nova Scotia, I made the move to New Brunswick in June 2022 to follow my dream of being in the veterinary field. I have a strong affinity for all things related to the lab and a deep interest in pharmacology. My inquisitive nature drives me to understand the ‘how’ and ‘why’ behind everything.

With a background in biochemistry and molecular biology, my long-term ambition is to further my education and embark on a career as a Veterinarian.

When I am not at work, you can find me painting, baking, doing hot yoga or building bioactive enclosures for my pet reptiles!

And here’s a fun tidbit: I share my life with five wonderful pets. Two cats, Sheldon and Leeloo, two snakes, StanLee and Penelope, and a Doberman named Russel.
