Alejandro graduated from the Animal Health Technology Program at Olds College in the summer of 2018 and worked as the Lead RVT at a busy general practice in Calgary for two years. His nostalgia for living by the ocean encouraged him to move to the Island and join CIVEH in the summer of 2020. When he's not at work you can find him at the beach, hiking, and trying out new places to eat - let him know your favourite restaurant in the area.
