She is a big advocate of RVT's and has been actively involved with the board of the directors for the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians.

Randi joined our team in March 2014 and has integrated into our team wonderfully. She decided that a career in Veterinary medicine was right for her when she laid eyes on her first dog, Tubby. He was the reason she fell in love with the pet world! The unconditional love, care, and the bond between humans and animals was something that was very inspiring for her. She decided to expand her love for animals by becoming a Veterinary Technician. She graduated from the Vet Tech program at Georgian College in 2010 with honors. She went on to complete the National Exam to become a Registered Veterinary Technician.
Randi is a very active person outside of work. She enjoys playing multiple sports, such as hockey and soccer. She enjoys spending her free time with her significant other Evan, and her 3 wonderful rescue cats; Buster, her big tabby boy; Pip, her small petite ragdoll cross; and the one-eyed Captain- (Cappi for short). Randi has also recently adopted a boston terrier puppy named Leonidas. They sure are one cuddle purr-fect family!
