Rachael has always had a passion for animals ever since she was a young child. Her first job with animals occurred shortly after high school when she landed a job in an animal shelter in Dartmouth, N.S. This job is what made Rachael determine that she wanted to work helping animals as a career. Rachael has some great educational assets she brings to our team as well. She graduated with a business management diploma containing a companion animal care specialty from the Dalhousie Faculty of Agriculture in 2014, and then followed her dream and received her Veterinary Technology diploma from Oulton College in 2018.
Rachael grew up in Ingonish, on the stunning Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island. She had the opportunity to work at and assist in opening a goat’s milk soap shop in her hometown – feel free to ask her about the funny stories featuring the crazy goat’s she helped care for! Rachael has three pets that keep her company at home including her goofy and comical dog Otis, her sweet golden child kitty Hazel, and her newest member of the family Brogan who is a sweet, mischievous kitten! In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her boyfriend & friends and travelling to Cape Breton to visit her family & sweet cocker spaniel puppy Raven. She also loves going to country music festivals/concerts, reading a good murder mystery book & watching many Netflix drama series. The thing Rachael has done that she is most proud of is taking a trip to Costa Rica with some of our team members & other members of our sister hospitals to spay and neuter animals in need. During this “spaycation” they all took part in spaying & neutering 447 animals in just four days!
Rachael is very excited to care for your pets and looks forward to meeting all of our clients!
