Tecla

Veterinary Assistant/Inventory Manager
I have been working in the vet clinics since 1978, and joined the team at Oakbank Animal Hospital in January 2012. I am a Veterinary Assistant, Inventory Manager and the unofficial kitten greeter.

Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with both small and large animals enjoying all the learning experiences they have provided. I grew up in the area and it is nice to see clients come in that I know or have grown up with.

Animals have always played a major role in my life and I was taught from very early on that they get looked after first.

After hours I enjoy looking after my yard and am also an Equestrian Canada Competition Coach Specialist, meaning I do some coaching and enjoy taking students to horse shows both locally and in the USA.
