Dee joined our team in October of 2013 as the Clinic Manager and often fills in as receptionist when needed. She comes from an extensive background in pediatric medicine, working for a pediatric specialist as office manager until his retirement. Dee has long known the importance of the human-animal bond, and has owned a variety of animals including dogs, cats, goats and horses. She has always felt the importance of children being exposed to the magic of pet ownership and the responsibility that is learned by so doing. Dee and her two daughters have traveled over Ontario and The United States hauling a horse trailer, with horses and dogs, to show at horse shows on most weekends. The bond that she has seen her children develop over the years has taught them both love and respect for animals, and has helped them grow into strong, responsible, caring adults. Both daughters have now continued this love and caring into their current employment as veterinary technicians. Dee has currently moved to Grimsby with her daughter and Bichon, Herbie.
