Danielle started working in the veterinary field in 2013 at a busy day time practice outside of Edmonton. During that time she completed her undergraduate degree in Biology and Sociology at the University of Alberta. She took a break from working in a vet clinic to complete a thesis-based masters in Environmental Science in Public Health also at the University of Alberta. Her project focused on DNA based detection of an invasive parasite that causes whirling disease in fish. She does plan to eventually continue her education studying infectious zoonotic disease in animals and humans.
Danielle grew up with many different animals, including being a competitive horse back rider for many years. Right now she just has two cats at home but can often be found taking her “dog-nephew” to the dog park.
Outside of work, Danielle can be found rock climbing, sewing and knitting, or winning a board game. She also volunteers with Canadian Animal Task Force and Days for Girls.
Danielle loves getting to know clients and their pets. She has a soft spot for our senior patients and is always happy to take the time to support owners through those old age changes.
