Emergency Veterinary Hospital Open 24 Hours a Day


Hannah Archdekin


Hannah grew up on the Saanich Peninsula. In fall 2020, she moved to Nanaimo to take VIU’s Animal Health Care Aide program and to work at CIVEH.

So far, Hannah loves all that Nanaimo offers and feels warmly welcomed by her coworkers and the community at large!

Outside of work, she can be found hiking trails or climbing rock walls.
