Melanie graduated from the Veterinary Technician Program at Ridgetown College in Guelph. She completed the required examinations to become a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) and joined Abbeydale Animal Hospital upon graduation in 2001. Along with her general technical duties, Melanie plays a key role in follow-up care for some of our chronic care patients, routinely discussing patient progress with pet owners and reporting her findings back to the Veterinarian. She loves being a technician, and is usually found in surgery every opportunity she can get. She has a cat named Peppermint, and, when not working at our Hospital, Melanie loves spending time with her young son.
