I am a 1993 Ontario Veterinary College graduate, and have been working at Ostrander since then.
I enjoy surgery, small animal reproduction and dabbling in horse, avian and pig medicine.
My husband and I have two beautiful, active sons, as well as three dogs and a horse. In my spare time, when I’m not tending to them, I enjoy traveling, reading, biking and gardening.
I have been a part of Ostrander Veterinary Clinic since 1995, first as a co-op student and then as summer help.
In 2002 I graduated from Ontario Veterinary College and came to work at Ostrander again. My growing family consists of a variety of pets.
In my spare time I enjoy camping with my husband and children, gardening and bead crafts.
I have been with Ostrander Veterinary Clinic since graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2005.
I grew up on a small farm and am interested in companion animals, as well as food animals, camelids, and horses.
Outside of practicing veterinary medicine, I enjoy spending lots of time outdoors with my family, as well as cooking, gardening, and reading. The numerous animals on our hobby farm are often subjects of another interest: photography.
I am a 2002 graduate of the Ontario Veterinary College and I am excited to with the Ostrander Veterinary team.
I enjoy the challenge of a busy small animal practice that provides ample opportunity to implement the skills I already have, and continuing to grow and learn through experience. I am also excited to be returning to the large animal side of practice where I can reconnect with my rural farming background.
I enjoy spending time with my children and being outdoors participating in a variety of activities such as rowing, cycling, running and yard work.
I joined the Ostrander Veterinary Clinic in May 2017 as an associate veterinarian. I graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a Bachelor of Science degree and continued my education at the University of Guelph, where I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College. I have been a part of the Ostrander Veterinary Clinic since my student externship, and now as a veterinarian.
My professional interests include soft tissue surgery, internal medicine and I have a strong interest in dairy and pleasure equine medicine. Outside of the clinic, I am an avid golfer and I enjoy playing pick up hockey. I also have a very lively Sheltie, named Coors, who is always by my side.
I graduated from the Veterinary Technology program at Centralia College in 1986 and practiced in Woodstock for several years before joining the light-hearted team at Ostrander.
My husband Greg and I farm in the Ingersoll area, sharing our home with our cats Marvin and Fluff, as well as numerous barn personalities.
In what spare time the farm and work allow, I enjoy my bounteous vegetable garden, ATVing and spoiling my nieces and nephews.
I graduated from Ridgetown College in 2002, receiving a diploma in Veterinary Technology. I’ve been working at Ostrander Veterinary Clinic since 2002 as a full time RVT and enjoying every minute of it!
My favourite leisure activities include reading, playing guitar, listening to heavy metal music and spending time with my dog Sharlotte.
I graduated from the Animal Health Technology program at St. Clair College in 1977. After many years of working full time in vet clinics in Woodstock, Cambridge, and Aylmer, I now enjoy working part time with the team at Ostrander. This gives me more time to enjoy some of my hobbies, which include landscaping, wood working and stained glass. I live in the Langton area with my husband Corey and my 4 cats.
I graduated from the University of Guelph, Ridgetown Campus in 2010, and received a diploma in Veterinary Technology.
My main interests are animal nutrition, Haematology, and Parasitology. In my spare time I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, photography, baking, shopping, and going to the movies. I have four cats named Snoop, Big Kitty, Rubbins and Prica.
I am a Registered Veterinary Technician and graduated from St Clair College. I started with Ostrander as a co-op student and have continued to work with them as I completed my education and training. I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, snowmobiling and being with my dog Brewskie.
I joined the Ostrander Veterinary team permanently after graduating from Georgian College. I started with Ostrander in high school for my co-op hours, and continued to work with them throughout college for placements and summer help. In my spare time I enjoy reading, fishing, hiking, camping, and spending time with my dog Harley.
I’m a graduate from Ridgetown College and am thrilled to be a member of the Ostrander team. I joined the team in October 2015 and have been looking forward to going into work ever since. I have always had a deep love for animals and I am excited to start my new career as a veterinary technician in this exciting and ever-changing industry. In my spare time I enjoy reading, hiking and spending time with my little Chihuahua Porkchop – who is a Ridgetown Graduate herself!
