 Our Staff

Cara - Client Care 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.

 


 

Courtney- Veterinary Assistant

Hello! My name is Courtney. I graduated from Georgian College Veterinary Assisting Program in 2015. After working a few years at Georgian Bay General Hospital in the Emergency Department, I knew Veterinary Medicine was my true passion. I've previously worked at Huronia Animal Hospital and more recently at Huronia Veterinary Emergency Clinic.

At home I have a cat named Henry and a Black Lab named Wallen who keep me quite busy. In my spare time I enjoy working out, outdoor adventures and of course spending time with family & friends.

I look forward to meeting you!


Courtney - BSc, Registered Veterinary Technician

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 a baby boy, Cameron who is the light of our world. We also have two spunky black labs, Madeline and Charlotte, an extremely dapper cat, Walter, and a horse, Jamie. In my spare time I enjoy spending time at the farm, boating, camping, and spending time with family and friends.

  I look forward to meeting you and your furbabies when you come into the clinic.

 

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.

Jillian - Veterinary Assistant

Hello, my name is Jill. I have worked in the animal care field for 10 years now. I couldn’t imagine doing anything different! I graduated from Durham College’s veterinary assisting program in 2011.  I’ve previously worked with the OSPCA and Thornhill Vet Clinic.  

I have 2 rescue cats named Sophie and Leena. In my spare time I enjoy running, camping, hiking and spending time with my friends and family.

I look forward to meeting you and your pets!

 

Krystal- Client Care Specialist/Veterinary Assistant

I grew up in Coldwater and moved to Toronto in 2010 to foster my career choice at the time. I began working in 2015 in the veterinary field after becoming a failed foster for 2 very sweet but scared Chihuahua- Wire Haired Terrier mixes. I started at Dundas West Animal Hospital as Client Care Specialist and grew with the practice as they expanded from 4 doctors to 10 doctors. I love helping clients with insurance claims and helping you choose the best diet for your pets that will also meet your families needs and expectations.

I moved to Orillia with my quirky husband Jason at the end of last summer. Jason grew up in Tiny/Wasaga Beach and our families are spread between Huntsville to Collingwood. As newly weds we wanted out of the city and to be closer to family as we start our own. We have a small heard of black cats named Booterz, Baby Boy and Chicken Little - Gizmo is our monstrous grey tabby cat who thinks he is a small child and yells "Hello" obnoxiously when he wants your attention. We also have Daisy & Bo - the pups that proved me to be a failed foster.

 

Kyra- Registered Veterinary Technician

Hi there!

My name is Kyra, an RVT and I graduated from the Veterinary Technician program at Georgian College in 2011. Most of my experience as an RVT has been in Referral (Surgery and Neurology) and Emergency/Critical care (ICU) at Toronto Veterinary Emergency and Referral Hospital. I recently made the switch to general practice, and am loving every minute of it at GBVH. I am owned by my cat Ziggy, who is a diabetic with Cattitude.

I look forward to meeting you and your furbabies!

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 three furbabies.  Marlee, Trina and Feebee have all very special places in our hearts.   I thoroughly enjoy our family time, and helping out at the OSPCA.

Hope to see you all 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


Twyla- Veterinary Assistant

Hello, my name is Twyla. I have worked in the animal field for 11 years now. During the 11 years I found myself in South Africa for 2 years helping the Vervet Monkey Foundation, helped on farms, dog walking and different vet clinics. As long as I remember I always wanted to help animals.

In my spare time you'll find me in the outdoors from hiking, swimming, kayaking, etc..
I rescued a kitten 5 years ago and she has always brighten up my day.

Looking forward to meeting you and your fur-babies!
