Pet Peeve: When people say “It can’t be done”
Favourite Animal: Cattle
If I could possess any super power it would be: The ability to read all these women’s minds that I work with. It would make my life a lot easier.
I grew up on a mixed farm, grain, beef and dairy near St. Brieux. Throughout school, I spent my summers working at my Aunt’s mixed animal practice in Stoughton, SK. This is when I found my love for veterinary medicine.
After high school I entered into Agriculture and was accepted into Vet Med at the WCVM. When I completed my DVM, I went to work at my Aunt’s practice for 2 years before I opened my own practice here. The time I spent there at her practice has been foundational for the type of veterinary medicine I look to provide and gave me the mentoring and confidence to go out and do what I do. She taught me that veterinary medicine is ever evolving, and you must evolve with it too to constantly provide quality care to your clients.
Around July 2011, I started working with a well-known and accomplished equine therapist and chiropractor from the local area. I was very interested in her work and what she could do to improve the animals’ comfort and ability. We worked with her for about a year before we got the OK to work on our own. We have treated everything from rabbits to bucking bulls. We continually work with her when she needs our vet assistance. It’s been a great partnership and is something that we’ve found to be a huge asset to our medical repertoire.

If I could possess any super power it would be: To slow down time.
I began my university career in Saskatoon in the College of Agriculture, Animal Science. After three years I was accepted into the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM). My husband and I, and our two boys, live on a grain farm northeast of Melfort. We have a Great Pyrenees named Shay, a couple horses, and too many barn cats to count!
My interests are music, reading, spending time with family and friends, travelling, and being at the lake.
