Vanessa Riley

Veterinary Technician

I grew up in St. Thomas Ontario with my mother, father, younger brother and several pets. Since I was a little kid I have grown up with pets and I would try and rescue as many as I could.

Throughout high school, I was able to do my co-op placement at Elgin Animal hospital and get lots of hands-on experience. I've always had a passion to help animals and I am beyond excited that I am able to combine my passion with my career. I graduated from St. Clair College in April 2018 as a veterinary technician and since then I have become a member of Elgin Animal Hospital. I joined Elgin Animal Hospital near the end of April 2018.

During my spare time, I like to go fishing and spend time with my friends and family.
