Courtney - BSc, Registered Veterinary Technician 

Hello,My name is Courtney Cruise, and I have been with the Georgian Bay Veterinary Hospital team since the Spring of 2011. I graduated from Georgian College's Veterinary Technician program with Honours in 2015, and have loved every minute of my work since then. I enjoy every aspect of veterinary medicine, and enjoy working to make each pets hospital experience as individual as possible. I grew up in this beautiful cottage country, and could not imagine living or working anywhere else. My husband, Jared, and I have two spunky black labs, Madeline and Charlotte, and an extremely dapper cat, Walter. In my spare time I enjoy boating, camping, and spending time with family and friends. 
I look forward to meeting you and your furbabies when you come into the clinic.
See you soon!
 

Tara - Registered Veterinary Technician 

Hello Everyone my name is Tara. The human-animal bond has been an integral part of my life from a very early age. My love of animals and the desire to care for them led me to the guidance counsellor’s office on my very first day of high school to compile a list of Colleges that offered the Veterinary Technician program. I graduated with honors from St Lawrence College in 1998 and have been passionate about the profession ever since.  Today I am a proud Registered Veterinary Technologist of more than 20 years.
I’ve been with the Georgian Bay Veterinary Hospital Team since the doors opened in 2010.  I feel very fortunate to have found a place where I can put my patient’s wellbeing first. Although I am enthusiastic about all aspects of veterinary medicine, I have a keen interest in Anesthesia and Dentistry.
I live in Orillia with my wonderful husband Doug. I have various pursuits outside of veterinary medicine.  Hiking, mountain biking, running, cross country skiing, outdoor adventure, travel and spending time with friends and family to name a few. 
I hope to see you and your beloved pets soon!
 

Sarah - Registered Veterinary Technician 

Hello, I am Sarah, most of you will see me at the front reception area or talk with me over the phone.  I was born and raised in Penetang.  I graduated from Ridgetown College in 2002 as a Registered Veterinary Technician.   It has been quite an experience over the last 17 years in the veterinary world, but I really do love coming to work.   Wonderful coworkers, exceptional owners and amazing pets make each day a great one.  I strive for excellent client communication and patient care.

As for home life, my husband and I have a very busy 4 year old son and four furbabies.   Finnlee, Marlee, Trina and Feebee have all very special places in our hearts.   I thoroughly enjoy our family time, playing chuck it with Finnlee and helping out at the OSPCA.

Hope to see you all soon



Tanya - Veterinary Technician/Mobile Services

Hello! It has been great being back at GBVH after moving away for a 'few' years. I have been working in the animal field on and off for about 12yrs since graduating from Georgian College. Currently, I'm living in the Midland area with my beautiful daughter, Mackenzie, and our 3 savage cats - Tips, Ninja and Mattie! Never a dull moment in our house with 3 young cats!

Cara - Client Services Specialist 

I moved to Tiny in February 2019 after having lived in Muskoka for most of my life.  I have been fortunate enough to have spent  most of my working life in the veterinary profession. After working after school and summers at Centennial Animal Hospital in Bracebridge, I became an Animal Health Technician and enjoyed that career for 10 years, first at a clinic in Whitby and then eventually coming back home to Centennial Animal Hospital.  I then left my career to raise my family and after several years at home, returned to Centennial’s satellite clinic, Gravenhurst Veterinary Services, focussing mostly on Client Services. After 15 years in this position I made the decision to move to Tiny.  I live close to Lafontaine Beach with my boyfriend Scott and my cat Redgee. 

Jacqueline - Registered Veterinary Technician 

I realized veterinary medicine was my calling during my high school co-op. I graduated from Lakehead University in 2014 with a bachelor of arts and science and graduated from the Georgian College veterinary technician program in 2019. In the summer of 2019 I became a fully registered veterinary technician. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my own animals and doing crafts like crochet and painting.
