I first started working with Dr. Emms in 2002, but took a hiatus to start a family. Now, with my youngest in school full-time, I have returned to Ivy Veterinary Services as front-desk staff. It has been good to see so many familiar faces – people and pets! I have an undergraduate degree in Animal Science from the University of Guelph and did some graduate work in animal behaviour at the University of Saskatchewan. I have been actively involved with the training, showing, and breeding Golden Retrievers since 1995. More recently, I have started showing my Irish Wolfhounds, which has been an interesting experience.
