About Vet

After graduating with a B.Sc from the University of Guelph, I completed my DVM from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2017. Post graduation, I practiced veterinary medicine in New Brunswick for 3 years before moving back to Toronto. After an intense and rewarding few years working at a very busy clinic in downtown Toronto, I currently work as a Locum at multiple clinics across the city. Aside from small animal practice, I also work at a primate sanctuary near Uxbridge, and am engaged in international wildlife medicine. I have experience in wildlife conservation regions, including Africa and South Asia; and recently completed a teaching assignment in Costa Rica at a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center.

Outside of veterinary work, I enjoy spending time with family, friends and my dog, Aria, and travelling, reading, cooking, playing video games, and leading an active lifestyle!
