We put the patients first!
Sarah always had a dog as a child and loved to go on visits to the local veterinarian’s office with him. As she got a little older, her passion for biology and anatomy started to grow. Pairing her natural affinity with animals and her interests in science and medicine left one obvious choice of career: veterinary medicine. Sarah hasn’t looked back since! She’s a Veterinary Assistant and Customer Service Representative here at Aldershot Animal Hospital.
Sarah is a native of Burlington and was still in high school when she first began volunteering at a local pet clinic. She started at the University of Guelph to study animal biology, further cementing her passion for the world of pet care, and joined the team here at Aldershot Animal Hospital to gain real-world experience during her summers off. She’s been a member of the team ever since!
Lindsay has been around animals since she was a young child; she fondly recalls her grandmother who worked as a manager at a pet food store. She enjoyed seeing her grandmother interact with pet owners and educating them, and knew that was something she could see herself doing in the future. Now she’s a registered veterinary technician at Aldershot Animal Hospital and loving it!
After years of schooling at Seneca College and Algonquin College, and training at various vet clinics, Lindsay was able to equip herself with the knowledge and experience to help animals and their owners the same way her grandmother was. Besides the client education aspect of the job, Lindsay enjoys working with senior dogs and cats. She looks forward to making their visits as relaxing and stress-free as possible. She also likes being around her current staff at the animal hospital, as they all compliment each other very well.
When some close colleagues/friends of hers opened up a new animal hospital, Mandi found herself willing and ready to help. As a registered veterinary technician at Aldershot Animal Hospital, Mandi is not only able to work with people she enjoys, she’s also able to help save the lives of animals who walk into the clinic on a daily basis!
Mandi absolutely loves having a job where every day is different and unexpected. She enjoys being the voice of animals, as it’s one of the main reasons why she entered the field.
Sarah’s goal in life has always been to make the most positive impact on the world as possible. From an early age, she knew that the best way for her to accomplish that goal was to pursue her passion for animal health. As a customer service representative here at Aldershot Animal Hospital, Sarah is grateful to be able to play a role in helping people and their pets live their best lives together.
Sarah’s journey in the veterinary industry began as a receptionist at a 24-hour animal hospital located in Hamilton. While she loved her job, she really felt drawn to find a smaller clinic where she could learn more and where it would feel more like family. She found just what she was looking for at Aldershot Animal Hospital. Professionally, Sarah enjoys getting to know the unique personalities of each patient and making sure our clients are well-informed on how to best care for their pets.
Michelle began working in the veterinary industry when she was a student and has had the opportunity to work in a variety of different roles over the years. As one of our receptionists, Michelle’s mission is to make visits to the vet as welcoming and stress-free as possible for both pets as well as their owners. It is her top priority to ensure that every pet receives the care he or she needs, and that clients feel supported and informed every step of the way.
