Nicole was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and moved to the Calgary area in 2018 to join our team at Bow Bottom Veterinary Hospital. Nicole has always had a love for animals growing up with dogs and her own pony. Nicole went to Douglas College where she graduated from the Animal Health Technology program in 2010. She has dedicated her career to animal welfare having volunteered for Paws for Hope in BC and working for the BCSPCA. These days she shares her home with her husband, two dogs(Goose and Goomba), two cats (Maiev and Mr.Tibs) , a turtle (Shortround), goldfish (Bacon) and recently added quarterhorse Ryker. Nicole is also fear free certified and loves spending time getting to know the patients. When not at the clinic or barn she spends her time playing World of Warcraft and drinking coffee.
