Nicole grew up in the surrounding area of Amherst, has always had a great love of animals and has been working with them since she was only fourteen years old.
She graduated from the Dalhousie Agricultural College with a degree in Enterprise Management: Companion Animals, is level one certified in animal behavior training (and taught a pot-bellied pig how to bowl!) and completed a two-year course for the Canadian Association for Zoos and Aquariums which certifies her to be a zookeeper! She has also worked on dairy farms and in the veterinary field for many years and we are so lucky to have her as part of our team.
In her spare time, you can find Nicole exploring her eighty acres of land on Big Lake with her dog Loki, enjoying a good cup of tea, practicing Reiki, or meditating. Nicole loves all things to do with nature, and her love for life in general brings a bright, happy energy to our clinic every day.
