Veterinary Assistant

What inspired me to go into the veterinary industry, was the love I have for animals and helping to care for them. Since I was little, it has been my dream to work in the veterinary field. I graduated from Oulton College July 2017 and joined the Riverview Animal Hospital in August 2017. While I was doing my on-the-job training, I was learning lots of new skills, information, and felt that the team made me feel right at home; this is the main reason I decided to join the Riverview team. My first pet was a dog and her name was Sandy, I adopted her from the Miramichi SPCA. What I love most about my job is being able to help animals and seeing them go home happy and well. I love when I get to see the smiles on owners’ face’s when they get their pet back, it’s the best feeling in the world. My favourite thing about the clinic is everything, I love being here learning and growing to become the best veterinary assistant I can be. I have two dogs and two cats and I’m also a dog groomer.
