Years in Practice: 11
Education: Western College of Veterinary Medicine, Saskatoon SK

I was born in Ontario and raised in the beautiful west coast of Canada. My veterinary schooling was done at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan--one of the coldest places on earth, as far as I am concerned. After I met my husband, Michael, I chose to move to his part of the world--Ruckersville, Virginia. We have two great (and very busy) children and one other Saskatoon transplant: Maggie the cat. Fejit, the cat, is a more recent addition to the family as are the dogs Milo and Pippa. We also share our lives with chickens, goats and a few thousand honey bees.

Animals have always played a central role in my life and I expect that they always will. I grew up on a hobby farm with horses, sheep, chickens, ducks and donkeys. I can't remember a time when there were no animals to feed or groom or otherwise look after. I have volunteered for wildlife rehabilitation groups, worked in kennels and shelters and helped establish rescue organizations. I studied both large and small animal practice in veterinary college but have focused on small animal medicine and surgery since graduation. I founded Preddy Creek Animal Clinic in the Fall of 2011 as a way to continue my passion of caring for animals. 

I try to offer options that clients can manage--both financially and emotionally. I will do my best to communicate what choices are available as far as treatments and preventative medicine and work with owners to choose the best plan possible for their pet.
