Emergency Veterinary Hospital Open 24 Hours a Day




I was born and raised in the small town of Powell River, BC and I moved to Nanaimo in 2017 with my husband. We have 2 beagles named Sahara and Archie, a big fluffy lazy long hair tabby named Max and a rambunctious Siamese/Ragdoll x named Blu. We are lucky to be able to reside on a small farm with horses, a cow and chickens.

Ever since I was a young girl I have had a passion for animals, and have always wanted to have a job where I can be of help to them no matter the circumstances. I feel so honoured to be working at CIVEH even though I come with no previous experience of working in a veterinary setting.

Most days you can find me out exploring the trails with our 2 Beagles (trying to tire them out) or out in the horse field just being present and taking time for myself.
