Genevieve grew up in North Vancouver until the age of 7, when her family moved to California. She moved back to Vancouver when she was 17 to attend UBC and has lived here ever since.
Genevieve has a Bachelor of Science in Applied Animal Biology (with honors distinction). Additionally Genevieve has worked on research projects with pigs, cows, and elephant to better understand their health and welfare and what we can do to improve it.
Genevieve’s previous experience includes working as a lifeguard, Kumon Instructor, doggie daycare staff and at a previous veterinary clinic in California as an assistant/receptionist. She has a strong background in animal welfare, stress and behavior from her time at UBC. As a result, she likes to sit with the anxious patients and help them feel more comfortable during appointments and procedures. Understanding animal behavior and working to understand the needs of each individual patient is what motivates her. Genevieve strives to improve the lives of animals every day and helping assist with procedures that make them feel better, is very rewarding.
One of Genevieve’s outside interests include swimming, doesn’t matter if it’s a pool or the lake! She loves to be outdoors in general and particularly enjoys hiking and other outdoor activities.
Genevieve feels that Amherst practices top-tier medicine and has an incredibly supportive and knowledgeable team of staff. She hopes to attend Law school within the next year or so, but feels Amherst is a fantastic place to work where she can learn more about medicine and hopefully make a difference for many patients and clients.
