Kirstyn, Office Manager

I started working in a vet clinic in 2010 part time while I was in university. I fell in love with my job and cannot imagine myself working anywhere else. I love meeting all the lovely patients and hearing their stories. I love attending conferences to keep up to date. In my spare time, I love spending time going on walks with my husband and our Siberian husky.
