Kate, Registered Veterinary Technician
Kate achieved her diploma in Veterinary Technology at the Nova Scotia Agricultural College in 2013, but her adoration for animals and desire to improve their lives started long before that. She spent much of her childhood volunteering her time at local animal shelters and helping fundraise for their care.
We met Kate in 2011 while she was volunteering with the Carleton County Animal Shelter. Her devotion to the well-being of the pets she cared for was evident, so when she approached us to complete her practicum at the end of her technician course, we knew she would be the perfect fit for our passionate team of staff.
Of course, she did not disappoint! Kate’s intelligence, enthusiasm, drive for perfection, and dedication to her patients are all qualities that make her the person we would all trust our own furry family members with. Kate carries the responsibilities of a technician with infallible accuracy, displays a wonderful sense of humor, and always acts with the best interest of her patients in mind. She is also a certified Wildlife First Responder and is certified in Oil Spill Response. Like Riley, Kate has completed extra training to become Fear-free certified and has earned a diploma in Medical Acupuncture for Veterinary Technicians. We could not be happier that she has become a permanent member here at FVC!
