Registered Veterinary Technician

When I was growing up, my family lived next to Dr. Turpel.  My family hadn't had any pets in a few years so living next to a couple who loved animals and had many of their own sparked an interest in animals for me.

For my 4th birthday they gave me a cat who I named Casper.  Almost a year later we were given a yellow lab named Molly, and at this point I had made up my mind that I needed to work with animals.  Over the years we had a few other animals given to us, Blue and Said (Labrador retrievers) and 2 cats (Gilly and Emily).

I originally wanted to become a Veterinarian and wen tot the University of Guelph for my BAchelor's of Science majoring in Zoology.  During my 4 years there I went on a volunteer trip to Africa and worked with cheetahs..  That was when I decided I wanted to become an RVT to allow me to have more hands on work with the animals.  I graduated from Guelph and applied to multiple colleges for the Veterinary Technician program.  I chose Sheridan College to attend because it was closest to home for me.  I graduated from the program with high honours in the spring of 2016.  When the opportunity arose to work at Upper Canada Animal Hospital I was so excited to join the group and have loved working here ever since!
