Dannielle

You know those people who knew what they wanted to do for a living from the age of 5? Dannielle is one of those. That she would work with animals was never a question. She’s volunteered at the Toronto Wildlife Centre, done community outreach for a private zoo, and worked in general practice (cats, dogs, and exotics). She brings an abundance of heart and tech-savvy to SOVH and is known for thinking both on her feet and outside the box.

Why SOVH? “I love working with a dynamic group that’s quick to adopt the latest best practices and medical technology. This is a tech-forward place in every way.” DG

VET TECH TRAINING:
Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT), Seneca College, 2011; with a later stint at Northern College in animal rehab programs; Fear Free® Elite certified

SPECIAL INTERESTS:
Emergency medicine, surgery and anesthesia, aging pets, and patient comfort

PASSIONS:
At work? Treating every pet as if it were her own. Every. Single. One. At play? Family, friends, team sports, and the next big adventure. Mud runs. Sky diving. Scuba diving. She’s up for it all.

SUPERPOWERS:
Unbridled enthusiasm and can-do spirit

WHAT MAKES HER TICK?
The adrenaline rush of taking up a challenge. Bring it!

CAT OR DOG PERSON?
More of an ‘all creatures great and small’ person. She can’t remember a time she didn’t have more than one species sharing her home. She’s also worked with exotics, wildlife, and domestic pets along the way. Her current brood includes Hudson, a shy mixed breed rescue from Taiwan (he trusts her implicitly), her Jardine’s parrot, Fritz, and 5 crested geckos.
