Arrowhead Specialty: Tech Assistant

I am originally from Germany and came to Canada with my partner Mark in 2015. We travelled to many countries beginning in 2012 and with our love for nature, hiking and the mountains, we quickly decided to settle in Canada.

I have always had a passion for animals of all kinds. I grew up on a little farm with horses, cats, dogs and bunnies. After I left Germany and my job a s a paediatric nurse, I travelled and worked in New Zealand and Australia on big ranches and stables.

When we arrived in Canada, we worked and lived on an amazing acreage, but we moved into town in summer 2019. We live with our goofy and spoiled rescue cats Pumpkin, Yoda and Boots, who entertain us, keep us busy and made our house a home.

I ran a boarding kennel outside of Cochrane, and am lucky to still have strong bonds with many of the wonderful clients. I left to pursue a different direction and began working at the Cochrane & Area Humane Society as an Animal Care Specialist. Missing my medical background more than I thought, I was very excited to start fulltime as a Technician Assistant at this wonderful clinic.

I am so grateful to have the opportunity to make a positive impact on animals lives and to be a part of this amazing, caring and supportive team. It never ceases to amaze me that you can learn something new every day.
