My name is Chris and I am the Office Manager here at the Vet Clinic. I grew up in Northwestern Ontario and, after some moving around, settled on Neepawa acreage outside of Neepawa in 2016. We have 2 dogs as well as a moose that frequents our yard, whom I call Bradley. In my spare time I enjoy reading, hiking and horseback riding. I also do a lot of different types of arts and crafts, from woodworking to making jewelry and painting.
My name is Amanda, I am the Marketing Director here at the clinic. My husband and I recently moved to the family farm. We currently have horses and a dog but are working on expanding…maybe goats, definitely some chickens and we’d love to get a small herd of cattle! I love being outside with the horses, walking with our dog, Kola, gardening, going for adventures on the quad and taking pictures!
Hi, my name is Kali and usually my face/voice will be the first you see or hear when you visit or call the clinic. I grew up on a small beef/grain farm not too far away from Neepawa and met my husband, who is a product of Neepawa as well. We own a small acreage outside of town with our 2 kids, 2 dogs and a herd of cats, which are all spayed and neutered. I enjoy camping, hiking, gardening and spending time with my family.
My name is Cathy, I am married and have 2 children. My main job is looking after the animals in one capacity or another. I assist in surgery and appointments, I also work front desk. We have a one eyed stray cat that we call Wray, who came home with Mr. Pickles one day and has never left. I enjoy my grandchildren first and foremost. We go for bike rides, walks and swimming, or just playing outside in the backyard! I love to read, watch curling and spend as much time as possible outside puttering in the yard.
