Katlyn was born and raised around the bay in Newfoundland. She always knew from a very young age that she wanted to work in the veterinary field one day.

Katlyn graduated from the Veterinary Assistant program in Newfoundland in 2017.  She worked there for 2 years in a veterinary clinic until making her move to Nova Scotia.  She wanted to further her education and graduated from the Veterinary Technician Program at Dalhousie’s Agricultural Campus in 2021. She wrote and passed her Veterinary Technician National Exam several months later. Although Katlyn is proficient in all areas of the hospital she does have a special interest in behavior and laboratory work.

When Katlyn is not working with animals she enjoys fishing, hiking, or watching reruns of Friends with her kitty, Squid.
