Heather

Lead Registered Veterinary Technician and Diabetic Consultant
My real passion is marine biology so in high school I was advised to try small animal medicine. I then graduated from St. Clair College in 1996 and I worked as an RVT until 2008. After working in the hearing industry for nine years, I returned to vet medicine and love it! I joined the clinic in 2018. My areas of interest are in nursing care, laboratory procedures and caring for diabetic patients. My first pet was a Domestic Shorthair tabby mix named Chevy. My favourite part of my job is interacting with the variety of personalities of family pets and observing how they are an integral part of each family. I love the small town atmosphere and still see many people from surrounding areas.
