Dr. Krista Simonson grew up on Eel River Bar First Nation in New Brunswick.  She obtained her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the Atlantic Veterinary College in Charlottetown, PEI. Upon graduation, she worked in Halifax for several years prior to coming on board at East Hants Animal Hospital, first as a part time veterinarian and most recently as a full time associate.

Dr. Simonson is Fear Free Certified which means she has received special training and designation for making your pet’s veterinary visit as stress-free as possible. Her other veterinary interests include dentistry, preventative medicine and palliative care.

Krista lives in Enfield with her husband Kyle, daughter Anna and their menagerie of smooth collies, gold fish, pet chickens and a cat. In her free time she enjoys creating memories with her family, walking, and kayaking with her husband.
