Lana graduated from NAIT as an Animal Health Technologist in 1990 (a long time ago!) She lives west of Edmonton on an acreage with her husband and many, many, many pets. She has the distinction of being the first employee that Park Veterinary Centre hired many years ago when we opened our doors in 1997. Lana has two dogs: a yellow Labrador named Samee and a Rottweiler named Tiny. She also has six cats named Bug, Beenz, Lil Missy, Frostie, Monkey, and Panther. Three of these cats were rescued from fatal circumstances and two others were adopted from shelters. Beenz was a special pick from a litter that came to the clinic for exams and vaccinations. Lana credits life circumstances as the reason she has so many cats living under her roof! To round out the household, Lana also has three aquariums in her home, and continues to acquire new rescue reptiles who need her loving care. When she is not at work assisting in so many ways, she fills her spare time with fastball, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, dirt biking, cooking, gardening, and many other things. Her love for her job is shown daily in the care and attention she gives to all the animals and the fact that she is still at Park Veterinary Centre and still going strong!
