Harbourview Animal Hospital StaffSusanne AHT

Susanne joined Harbourview Animal Hospital as a locum veterinary technician in November 2017 following Veronica’s retirement. From a career primarily in emergency and critical care she enjoys some day shifts in regular family practice and routine procedures. She works part time at the VCA Canada Vancouver Animal Emergency and Referral Centre as an emergency and critical care technician. She has been with them since graduating from the Animal Health Technology program in Kamloops now called Thompson Rivers University in 1986. Aside from maternity leaves after the birth of her two sons the call to work in the veterinary field remains strong as it is very interesting and she has been able to work with so many amazing people over the past years. She also works from a home office as VP Finance for her husband’s company looking after bookkeeping and accounting matters. She lives with her husband Marc, her two sons Hunter and Forrest, Luke the flame point Siamese X and recently adopted Calvin the Border Collie X. When not busy working she spends her time dog walking/training, skiing, swimming, cycling, camping, cooking, baking, reading and volunteering at her kids schools. She speaks German fluently and can converse in French.

Harbourview Animal Hospital StaffGrace AHT

Grace joined the team in October 2018 after she moved to Vancouver from Dublin, Ireland. Back at home she completed a one-year Animal Care course before progressing further to complete a three-year Veterinary Nursing (Technician) degree in 2018. In Ireland, Grace worked as a Student Veterinary Technician throughout her degree in a busy veterinary practice. This was very beneficial to her studies, allowing her to put theory into practice. Grace has one dog named Bam, a wild and lively beagle. Unfortunately, he had to stay in Ireland with her parents. She misses him a lot. Adapting to the active, outdoor lifestyle in Vancouver, Grace has taken up running, hiking and cycling. She also likes to go to the gym and read.
