Terri

RVT
I graduated from the Nova Scotia Agricultural College with a BSc in Animal Science and then a diploma in Animal Health Technology. After graduating I worked at a small animal hospital in the valley. In 2003 I moved to Toronto and worked in several different small animal hospitals that were also associated with cat rescue groups. In 2016 I moved back to Halifax and joined The Halifax Veterinary Hospital. I am very excited to be working at a cat-friendly practice. I’ve had the opportunity to work with amazing people and have found this career to be very rewarding. I am currently living in Halifax with my partner Chris, 2 daughters Gwen & Abbie and 2 kitties Tobias and Malachy.
