About Vet

I am a small animal emergency vet based in Whistler, BC. I have more than 10 years of experience as a veterinarian, mostly in the vet ER treating very sick and injured cats and dogs. I am skilled in small animal medicine, surgery and emergency medicine. Before focusing primarily on emergency, I worked in small animal general practice for about 3 years.

I am brand new to Vetster. I was recently injured skiing and I can't see real patients in the clinic until I am off crutches, so in the meantime I thought Vetster could be a good way to help some cute dogs and cats.

When I am not busy helping animals, I can usually be found hiking, skiing, and mountain biking. I love all animals and the planet, and I have become more and more passionate about sustainability over the years. I also run an educational YouTube channel (called Twin Trees Vet) where we teach pet parents ways to prevent emergencies, to be prepared for emergencies and how keep their pets safe.
