Stephanie always knew she wanted a job working with animals ever since she was a child as she felt a special connection to them. Her dreams came true when she graduated from the Animal Health Technology program at NAIT in April 2017. Her passions surrounding animal health includes exotic animal medicine, animal behaviour and nutrition. She hopes to specialize in these areas over the years to come. She feels it is an honour to care for sick and injured animals, and to nurse them back to health. Even though no words are spoken, when she looks into the animal’s eyes, she can sense that they are grateful. Working with animals is so rewarding and fills her heart in a way no other job can. This is why she became a Registered Veterinary Technologist. She was drawn to work for Park Veterinary Centre for its specialized knowledge in exotic animal medicine. She has a talkative, 8 year old Sheltie named Bella, who has quite the following on Instagram. She is also welcoming a Blue Heeler puppy to her family in the weeks to follow! Her hobbies include watching movies, cake decorating, and hiking trails in nature sanctuaries and provincial parks.
