Star Practice Manager / Lead RVT

Star grew up on a farm just outside of Alsask Saskatchewan and was homeschooled from grades 5-9 which left lots of time to play with all the different animals she acquired. Star was in canine 4-H for several years and competed with her dog, Honey, in different things but especially excelled in agility which she later went on to teach classes in.

From 2004-2009 she attended the University of Saskatchewan to try and get into veterinary medicine but switched gears to instead become a veterinary technician. Star was awarded the Centennial Merit Scholarship and graduated with distinction from the 2-year program from Siast Kelsey Campus in 2011. During that time she did a 5-week practicum at the Greater Vancouver Zoo and was able to increase her knowledge for exotic medicine. For the next 5 years she worked at Acadia Vet Clinic in Saskatoon as the head technician and specialized in weight consults, semen freezing, stem cell therapy and exotic animal care and treatment. She also worked closely with different rescue groups and fostered several cats and dogs over the years.

Star moved to Edmonton in 2016 to live with her husband and 3 cats. Shortly after moving, Star was beyond excited to have the opportunity to join the GFPC Family. She loves meeting all the new patients and owners that come in and is looking forward to the future here!
