From a very early age, I felt a special bond with animals, and I wanted to be a veterinarian since I was 5 years old. When I was a child I was only allowed to have very small pets of my own such as hamsters and goldfish. So I took every opportunity to look after other people’s pets, either through pet sitting or volunteering.
I attended the University of Guelph for a Bachelor of Science in 1994, and then I got into the Ontario Veterinary College in 1998. My first job out of vet school was in Oakville, shortly after which I moved to Toronto to work in a different small animal practice in North York. I was there until 2010 when I decided to open my own practice. I have had a lifelong fascination for medicine and science, and I also enjoy working with people and forging relationships. I love always learning new things, and with this job, it happens all the time. I wanted to make a living in a career that challenges and inspires me, and now actually being a vet allows me to do that every day.
I have always felt driven to help animals, to provide them with comfort and safety. Not only that, I love helping owners understand their pets better and guiding them on giving the best care possible. I thoroughly enjoy developing a relationship with my clients. I love getting to know them beyond their pets as with each visit I get to learn more about their families, their jobs, and their lives.
Currently, my husband and I live and thrive in Etobicoke, and what we love to do most is play golf. I have a high-energy border collie mix named Alex that keeps me out running and walking. Some day I would love to have a country property where I can have multiple pets around. I enjoy physical fitness and outdoor activities such as cycling. My dream is to travel more and soon I hope to get to Europe. I am a member of the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association, the Village of Islington Business Association, and an avid supporter of the Farley Foundation.
