Assistant to Dr. Patti Ryan

I have always had an interest in veterinary medicine and even applied to the AVC. It didn't work out for me, but when I saw the opportunity to come work at Sunrise Animal Hospital, I jumped at it. I know it was the right decision, I love coming to work every day. I started working at the clinic in June 2013. I enjoy learning every day. Medicine is always changing and I find that we, as an industry, are always trying to find better ways to improve health care for our clients and our patients. There are so many CE opportunities for us. It's in our best interest and the best interest of our clients to take advantage of as many learning sessions as possible.

My first pet was a mixed breed pup named Shanna. I really love helping our clients and patients feel better. That may be through the diagnosis and treatment of a disease process, an acute condition or simply at the end of the pet's life. I feel that in veterinary medicine, you need to be here for the owners, as much as you are for their pet, who is really another family member. Compassion and understanding, that's what I love about my job. We have a great team environment. We work very closely together and although we have a large staff, everyone feels pretty close. Lending a helping hand to our teammates and colleagues, that's my favourite thing! I am a huge hockey fan and play both ice and ball hockey, go Leafs!
