Emma could not be happier to be a new member of the Douglas Square Pet Clinic team. She grew up on the west coast of British Columbia with numerous furry companions. Growing up, Emma loved reading and learning about animals and animal husbandry. And at the age of 4, she decided she would become a veterinarian and she has not changed her mind since.
In May of 2020 Emma completed her Bachelor’s of Science in Applied Animal Biology with Honours at the University of British Columbia. In her degree Emma focused much of her studies on animal welfare and ethics. She represented UBC at the AVMA Animal Welfare Judging Competition in 2018 and wrote an undergraduate thesis on pain related behaviours in horses following castration.
It should come as no surprise that Emma is interested in all facets of veterinary medicine but she is also concerned with keeping patients calm and safe during their visits to the clinic. It is her goal to make sure that each patient receives the same care and consideration she would show her own furry family members.
Emma lives in Calgary with her fiancé and their many fur-babies or “mini-zoo” as her mom calls them. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, knitting, baking and hiking. Emma hopes to one day attend the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program at the University of Calgary.
