Makenzie is originally from Ontario and grew up on a hobby farm.  She spent countless hours tending to the animals and working with her grandparents hunting dogs.  She always knew that she wanted to work in the veterinary industry one day.

Makenzie has been a familiar face at East Hants Animal Hospital since the very early days when she volunteered as a student. After graduating from the Veterinary Technology program in 2021 she was hired on full time. She will write her Veterinary Technician National Exam in the new year to become a Registered Veterinary Technician.

Although she loves all aspects of her job, Makenzie gets the most joy from educating clients and working on her dog training skills.

Makenzie shares her home with 2 dogs and 2 cats, and she also has a horse. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, horse back riding, and time spent with family.
