Cash is a Veterinary Technician at the Wellesley Veterinary Clinic.

“Being born and raised in North Bay, Cash had never heard of the small town of Wellesley. Shortly after graduating, she was visiting her sister in Kitchener and stumbled upon the Wellesley Vet Clinic online. She was drawn to the rural aspect of the practice and the small town feel of it’s location despite it’s close proximity to the city. One moment she was enjoying the scenic drive through farm country, resume in hand, and the next she was packing her bags and moving to south-western Ontario to start her new career as a member of the WVC team!

Growing up, Cash wasn’t aware of the role of a Veterinary Technician and the joy it would one day bring to her. She did however, always have an undeniable passion for, and interest in, animals of all species. She spent many years as an avid horseback rider – something she plans to continue. After high school, Cash spent some time trying to determine how she could turn her passion into a fulfilling and satisfying career. That’s when she found the Wildlife Rehabilitation-Veterinary Technology Program at Northern College. This advanced diploma was perfect in that it set her up for a successful career as a Veterinary Technician, but also allowed her to study Wildlife – one of Cash’s greatest interests.

Cash’s role at the Wellesley Clinic is diverse. To summarize, she assists  the veterinarians in all aspects of caring for both the patient and client. This includes running various lab tests, taking radiographs, monitoring pets during anesthetic (to name a few) and openly communicating with owners regarding updates, results, and how the team can help meet their needs. As hectic as it can sometimes be, Cash is sure to find time for a healthy amount of puppy cuddles and hang-outs with any pets that may be staying with us that day. Cash can honestly say that she is passionate about all aspects of her job with a keen interest in assisting the vets throughout their diagnostic process. It’s very rewarding witnessing them form a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan to help a pet. Cash feels very fortunate to be part of such a great team and to work with so many great clients!

Due to working long days at the vet clinic, Cash does not have a pet of her own. Her sister, who also lives in Kitchener, owns a cat named Lucy so she is happy to be “Aunty Cash” to her. When Cash is not at work, she is sure to surround herself with animals however she can, often spending time on farms, with friend’s pets and occasionally pet sitting.

Aside from being a Veterinary Technician, Cash enjoy’s horseback riding and pursuing a fit and healthy lifestyle. She loves to travel and experience new places. Cash spends as much time exploring the outdoors as possible, especially back home in Northern Ontario, and finds great joy in most outdoor activities. Music has always been a large part of Cash’s life so she thoroughly enjoys going to live shows or growing her music library.”
