Hello! My name is Camille, or Cam for short. My love for animals has always been a huge part of who I am, however, because I’m allergic to fur I didn’t think there would be a place for me in the veterinary community. Post graduation from high school, I studied 2 years of fine arts. Not happy with that choice, I pursued a pre-health program to become a nurse. I still didn’t feel quite right so I returned to where I was happiest, working with animals and science. I had been volunteering at a wildlife centre for 7 years, and this is where I met a veterinary technician who described the job to me. I never realized that they did so much, taking blood, performing tests, educating clients, reading urine, fecal, and cytology slides; it all sounded like so much fun. When I began my first year of the Veterinary Technicians program at Northern College is Haileybury, On, I knew I had found exactly what I was looking for.
I graduated in April of 2019 and I am so excited to begin this new journey of learning. As of September 2019 I have also become a full member of the OAVT and have become an RVT.
I would love to one day specialize in exotics, and I also have an interest in small animal rehabilitation.
