Holly

Receptionist

She graduated from the Animal Health Technician Program at Fairview College in 1981 and has worked both in the purebred swine breeding business and as an AHT before coming to Dawson Creek in 1994.Holly worked in the Dawson Creek area as an AHT for 10 years before deciding to try a stint at cattle ranching. After a brief period ranching post BSE she decided she would rather talk about cows than raise them and joined the reception team at Dawson Creek Vet Clinic.  Holly has been an active member of the Dawson Creek Horse Club since the inception of the club thirteen years ago and enjoys horseback riding, gardening and fishing.  She shares her life with one hound dog, six barn cats, five horses, and a wonderful husband.

Ashley

Small Animal Receptionist

     Ashley comes from four generations of Dawson Creek residents and has lived here her whole life. She had the opportunity of growing up around small and large animals as she spent most of her weekends hanging out at her aunt\'s farm. She got to hang out with all the livestock on the property and she absolutely loved it. Growing up, her family had a wonderful dog named Pepper but that did not stop her from bringing home every stray or injured animal, which she still does today. She started as a small animal receptionist in March of 2014 and loves every minute of it. Ashley especially enjoys working clients, meeting new people, and taking care of their furry family members. Ashley currently shares her home with a lazy puppy named Charlie and a grumpy old cat named Milo.

Elizabeth

Receptionist

     Elizabeth was born and raised in Terrace, BC with her three younger brothers. She spent most of her time outdoors with her family. She learned to ski at age five and spent most of her time skiing in the winter. In the summer she spent her days swimming and riding. Throughout high school she trained and coached gymnastics, as well as doing photography. She has always surrounded herself with animals and currently has a dog, a cat, and two horses. After graduating in 2011 she spent the summer traveling around BC with her family before moving to Dawson Creek by herself in the fall. Elizabeth moved here so that she could get more involved with horses, which has been a passion of hers ever since she was a little girl. After moving to Dawson Creek she spent two years living with a couple who bred warm blood horses. There she learned a lot about horses and now has two of her own. She worked at the Lakota Agriplex prior to working here with us at Dawson Creek Veterinary Clinic. Elizabeth loves her work here as it keeps her life revolving around animals and caring for them. She plans to be with us for many more years and is very excited to continue learning as much as she can while she is here.
