Caroline grew up avidly reading James Herriot. She received her bachelor of Science(Agr) from UBC in 1984 and graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1990. She has been in mixed animal practice ever since, and believes she now has enough of her own material and tales to put into a book of her own!
Caroline resides with her husband Don on their farm, where cattle and horses are now chickens and bees plus dogs and cats. When Caroline isn’t working, she can be found with her pack of “flat coats” in the Landcruiser heading to local trails or the dog friendly wb cafe on the lake.
Vickie has been at the BLVC for almost 24 years working as a vet assistant, receptionist, gopher etc. She has spent most of her life on a family cow-calf operation near Grassy Plains and grew up milking cows, slopping hogs, cleaning barns, feeding animals, operating farm equipment and riding horses.
Her favorite memories of clinic life include lots of farm calls helping with bovine c-sections at all hours and temperatures.
Vickie has been married for almost 39 years, with 2 adult children and two grandsons. She currently has 2 dogs, 1 cat, and 3 horses. Her favorite past times include camping, gardening, quilting, spending time with family and friends, observing animal/livestock behavior and horseback riding.
Gail has been with the Vet Clinic for the past thirteen years working as the clinic janitor. She moved to Canada in 1994 from good, old Great Britan, met her husband Mike here and they got married. She loves Burns Lake and the life she has built here.
Before coming to Canada, Gail had never gone camping or fishing, and now she loves to do both. She and her husband bought a motor home and enjoy using it all summer with their Poodle cross rescue pup, who loves camping too. Gail has become a true lover of the outdoors, though she could do without the bugs!
