About Vet

I obtained my B.Sc from the University of Guelph, then completed my DVM from the Ontario Veterinary College. After graduation I practiced in Moncton, NB for 3 years before moving back home to Toronto. I worked at a very busy clinic in Downtown Toronto for a few years, and now work as a Locum throughout the city. Aside from small animal practice, I also work at a primate sanctuary near Uxbridge, and do international wildlife work. I have worked in parts of Africa, and will be working in Central America soon. Outside of veterinary work, I enjoy spending time with my own pets, Aria, Zeus and Flash, travelling, playing video games, and living an active lifestyle both at the gym and outdoors.
