Our family business is powered by strong, capable women. International Women’s Day is the perfect day to celebrate the competent, caring women that make our hospital and pet store a success. Let’s introduce you to the ten awesome ladies who run our business and are such positive forces in our community.
Amanda is calm, cool and collected while keeping us all organized and on track, running the front end of the hospital. Jackie coaches clients, wrastles dogs and cleans teeth with a laugh and a grin.
Hannah uses her memory superpower to advise on pet nutrition, keep track of all the hospital supplies and schedule our staff. Olivia morphed from volunteer to employee. She now mixes remedies and prepares for surgery.
Dr. Pam adjusts cats and dogs, coaches pet parents on preventative health and inspires us all to lead balanced, healthy lives. Jess monitors anesthesia, takes blood, runs lab tests and sneaks in cuddles on the side.
Arnica manages the hospital, finds new awesome staff, gets the word out about our great business and mothers her monster dog in the office. Karina troubleshoots health issues on the phone, checks clients in and out, and delights people and pets with her warmth and treats.
Sadia keeps us on track financially while sharing an office with the monster dog. She’s everyone’s favourite person... (She does payroll!) Christine ensures everyone has a magical day while keeping the treatment area running, the hospitalized pets safe and comfortable, and the hospital spic and span.
The women who run our hospital and store care for your pets, contribute economically and socially to the community, and are fantastic role models for young girls who are interested in medicine and science. Join us in celebrating the women in your workplaces, fighting for gender equity and #pressforprogress .
Yours in holistic pet health,
Amanda, Arnica, Christine, Hannah, Jackie, Jess, Karina, Olivia, Dr. Pam and Sadia! (and Dr. Jason too!)
