Hospital Assistants


Hospital Assistant

Emily joined our GVS team in 2022 – One of her favorite things about her job is spending time with dogs, which she is most passionate about, and has an interest in large animal medicine. Emily loves to spend time with her fur children; Bear (a 3-legged cat) and Hailey (a Golden Retriever). In her spare time, she loves to take Hailey on walks and spend time with friends and family.



Hospital Assistant

Lauren is a local to the area and takes care of most of our in-clinic orders as well as performing her duties as a hospital assistant. You may hear Lauren’s laugh and bubbly personality when you walk through our doors – it’s contagious and sure to brighten your day. She’s a pet parent herself with a dog named Daisy, an axolotl named Marble and multiple cats at home who she enjoys spending time with when she’s not in the clinic.


Hospital Assistant

Katrina has always had a fondness for animals, and it is the fondness that encouraged her to become a veterinary assistant in March of 2021. She loves how each dog, or cat, or worm has their own unique personality, and Katrina brings out the best of those personalities. Having grown up surrounded by pets, Katrina knows the importance that animals bring to peoples’ lives. When she’s not working, she enjoys spending summers in Gimli and Kenora with her friends and family. And when she does, there’s usually a dog or five around – her newest addition is Henry, an adorable Golden Retriever.
