Hello! My name is Dakota and I am a 2020 graduate from NAIT’s animal health technology program. I have been working in veterinary medicine for 4 years as an assistant/ receptionist/ AHT student. As I transitioned into my career as a tech, I have only grown more passionate for this field of work. I am very eager to continue learning and growing so I can provide the best care for all patients. At home, I have 3 cats (Bruce, Jasper, and Gary) and my dog (Mac) that keep me busy on my time off.
Hi! I’m Courtney and I graduated from NAIT’s Animal Health Technology program in 2016 and have been working as an RVT since then. I have a furry family of my own at home consisting of Border Collies, cats and even a betta fish. I compete heavily at an international level in frisbee with my younger dog, Jagger, and also compete in agility with him. In my spare time, I love to go hiking with my dogs. My biggest interests as an RVT are performing dental cleanings and taking xrays! I am also very interested in canine reproduction, whelping and also canine massage. I am very excited to meet all the pets and clients that come in to the clinic.
Teagan, Client Care
Hello my name is Teagan,
I have loved animals all my life, growing up around horses, donkeys, chickens, dogs, and cats. I have cats and dogs of my own, who I love very dearly. I enjoy cuddles and hanging out with them, along with video games and painting.
I have been a Vet Assistant/Receptionist since 2018, and I have completely fell in love with the job. I can truly say I love my job. I hope to one day become an RVT, and further my knowledge in the veterinarian field.
I look forward to meeting all the clients and their furry little family members.
Reice, Client Care
