Technician
I was born and raised in Halifax, spending most of my life in the community of Clayton Park. I attended university in St. John's, Newfoundland where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I then attended NSCC in Kentville where I studied to become an addictions counsellor. Before I made the leap to go back to school for a third time to become a veterinary technician I had felt quite lost and really wanted to have a career instead of just a job. That decision turned out to be the greatest one that I have ever made, as I finally feel like I am exactly where I belong, doing exactly what I was meant to do and something I truly love. I chose the veterinary field because I have always had a passion for animals and for helping people, and believed that working as a veterinary technician would be the best way for me to combine these two passions into an amazing career. The areas of veterinary medicine that interest me the most would have to be dentistry and oral health as it is such an important aspect of our pets' health that we sometimes don't think about, as well as surgery. I really love the team here at Spryfield Animal Hospital who all care so much about our clients and patients. They've been so welcoming and supportive from the very beginning and already feel like family. I also love the importance that is placed here on practicing quality medicine to the highest standards and getting to be a part of providing quality care to our clients and their pets. A fun fact about me is that I have had many different pets over the years, ranging from cats and dogs to hamsters and mice, to fish and iguanas. I am also a proud pet parent to 3 wonderful fur babies, my dogs Lexie and Roxy and my little mouse named Swiss.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 902-477-4040. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan. If you do not have a cell phone please knock our door to let us know you have arrived and then return to your vehicle.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Monday: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Tuesday: 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Wednesday: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Thursday: 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Friday: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Saturday: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
