Veterinary Assistant
Hanna Doyle, Hanna was born and raised in Nanaimo. Her passion for animals started at a young age with horses, Hanna continues to ride her horses at her mother's farm. Hanna has always had a drive with animals, and working at a vet clinic is her dream. She had originally found employment at a clinic on Gabriola Island for 8 months, but she wanted to work in her hometown and help animals in the community she loves. She found herself with employment as a kennel assistant at the CIVEH in the summer of 2018. She has since graduated to vet assistant just a couple of months ago. You can find Hanna, at the barn on her mother’s farm hanging around the horses, or in the house with her long-haired standard dachshund who goes by the name of Zen, or her rescue dog Izzy. In the Fall, Hanna is attending VIU and pursuing her dream of becoming a vet by first completing her Bachelor of Science and then continuing on to Vet school.
