Born and raised in Calgary, Angela always loved animals and had numerous pets growing up. She always knew she wanted to work with animals and graduated in 2006 from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Upon graduating, Angela worked at the University of Calgary’s Animal Resource Center as an Animal Care Technician. She joined the Chestermere Veterinary Clinic in March 2008 because she wanted to help keep pets healthy and live long happy lives with their families.
Angela currently works part time for the clinic so she can look after her young children.

She has attended numerous conferences and training programs in pet nutrition and she enjoys working with clients to find the best food to meet their pet’s needs at each stage in their life. Angela also enjoys educating clients about their pets in other ways, and helps look after the clinics website and Facebook page, where she can communicate with them by posting information and writing a blog on various pet related articles.
