We are excited to have Dr. Heather from our sister clinic Bloorcourt Veterinary Clinic joining our team during Dr. Karen’s maternity leave.
Dr. Heather was born and raised in Richmond Hill, Ontario. From a very young age she had an affinity for animals and knew she wanted to be a veterinarian. While completing her undergraduate degree in Animal Biology at the University of Guelph, she received early acceptance to University College Dublin School of Veterinary Medicine in Dublin, Ireland. After completing her degree she accepted an Emergency Medicine and Critical Care Internship at Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists in Wisconsin, USA. During her internship Dr. Heather developed a keen interest in internal medicine and soft tissue surgery.
Upon completion of her internship, Dr. Heather took her passion for veterinary medicine and the great outdoors overseas to practice in Sydney, Australia. During her time down under she continued to practice emergency medicine and started to work as a general practitioner. She was also fortunate enough to work with Australian wildlife. After two glorious years in the sun, she returned to Toronto to be closer to her family.
Dr. Heather now enjoys city life in downtown Toronto as well as taking frequent trips up north to Georgian Bay with her beautiful husky cross Lacey. In 2019 she fell in love with one of her Annex Cat Rescue patients, and added spunky senior survivor “Karen from HR” to her family.
