Notre équipe/our team
Small, yet mighty!
Depuis le début de la clinique @PointeVet, nous avons développé notre équipe de techniciens d'une des équipes les plus talentueuses. Ils sont patients, dévoués et responsables de la plupart des tâches difficiles jour après jour. Ils travaillent si fort pour faire une différence dans la vie des animaux que nous servons.
Since starting @PointeVet clinic we have grown our team of support staff and technicians into one of the most talented teams around. They are patient, dedicated, and responsible for most of the tough jobs day in and day. They work so hard to make a difference in the lives of the animals we serve.
Animal Health Technician
Cari has more than 10 years of experience working with animals. She has worked at different clinics in Montreal quickly working her way to head technician. Cari has a special interest in surgery and extensive experience with anesthesia. For many years she worked training other technicians in surgical nursing. Cari joined the CVPSC to take on a more senior role managing the daily patient care at the hospital focusing on all aspects of animal care, client education, and of course nursing for surgery and anesthesia. Cari lives with her longtime partner, Marc, and their four cats: George, Min Bin, Phoenix, and Ruby (their newest addition straight from the street of the Pointe!)
Hannah is our office manager and has had a soft spot for animals her whole life. As a teenager, she was hired at a veterinary clinic as a kennel attendant, trained as a technician assistant, and over the last 10 years has moved into management. She was on the board of directors for Eleven Eleven Animal Rescue where she fundraised for the medical bills and rehoming of over 600 abandoned animals between 2009 - 2014. During this time, she became a strong advocate for animal rights issues including population control, anti-BSL, pro-adoption, and welfare education. She is a registered emergency responder for Red Rover and has worked with the Montreal SPCA Emergency shelter assisting in triage and assessment of hundreds of dogs and cats seized from hoarding situations and mills. She is a proud mum of a very old pug, a three-legged cat, and a geriatric lovebird.
FRONT OF HOUSE
Kristina will greet you when you first arrive. She is most often up front or the one answering all your calls. She is a veterinary technician first and foremost and so we are so lucky to have her up front. You can be assured that your questions are being answered by an expert. She has loved animals her whole life. She graduated from Montreal's Vanier College and has been working in small animal practice for 5 years now. She has worked at different clinics in Montreal before joining the CVPSC to take the position running the front of house. Few clinics have an experienced technician available up front. Kristina is an avid cyclist and has a cat named Gunther who is a handsome devil.
ANIMAL HEALTH TECHNICAN
Molly knew from an early age that she wanted to work with animals in some capacity. She started by volunteering at the SPCA during her studies in Vanier’s Animal Health program. Once she became exposed to animals rescued from dire situations like puppy mills or hoarders, she was certain that she had chosen the right path and that helping animals was exactly what she wanted to do. She was soon hired by the SPCA at their annexe dealing with adoptions. She left shelter work a year before completing her studies and has worked as an animal health technician since graduation in 2013. She has worked at two other veterinary clinics in Montreal and was a team leader for years at her previous practice. She currently lives with her partner Sam and their cat Sherman, but are always looking to expand their fur family.
ANIMAL HEALTH TECHNICAN
Annie has had animals all her life, but only decided to turn her passion into her career after finishing her fine arts degree at Concordia when she realized she wanted a career where she felt like she was making a tangible difference. She got her first taste for animal health work when she volunteered with the SPCA Emergency Shelter. Annie is a 2018 graduate of the Vanier Animal Health Technician program and has worked at two busy clinics before landing at Pointe Vet. Her three cats and the loves of her life are Milou, Cybele and baby Stewie!
