Hi, I’m April, a Veterinary Assistant here at Oromocto Vet Hospital.
I attended Da Vinci College, and graduated in 2014 with my certificate as a Veterinary Assistant. I have always brought my pets to OVH and volunteered a lot of my time here before becoming an employee. I always knew that I wanted to work here, as I love that we work directly with the Oromocto SPCA (OSPCA) and the New Brunswick SPCA (NBSPCA). It’s amazing to see the transformation of an animal, as they go from a bad life to being adopted to their loving, forever home.
One of my favorite things about veterinary medicine is how many lives we save. Those pets that come in to us, and have almost no hope but end up leaving healthier than ever. Those are the moments we hold on to during the difficult times. I absolutely adore my coworkers and employers, as we are a tight-knit family that works well together to continue saving lives.
The rest of my time, outside of the hospital, is spent relaxing with my two kitties, Blink and Chips, both adopted from the OSPCA. They are my entire world! I do also enjoy boating, colouring and reading.
