I was born in Winnipeg but have lived in Kelowna most of my life. My family has always had dogs, cats and even hampsters. Unfortunately, I don’t have any of my own… yet! I found a passion in horses in 2013. In August 2017 I decided that I wanted my job to be something I was passionate about so I quit my job and started trimming horse hooves. I was lucky enough to start working at Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital in May 2018. I am so grateful to be part of such an amazing team!
