I graduated from high school in 1983. I started working at the Miramichi Animal Hospital in September of 1989. I love animals and when the opportunity arose to work at a vet clinic I was excited to start.

I joined the Waterview Animal Hospital when the two vet hospitals in Miramichi joined forces to become one larger hospital to be able to serve owners and their pets with the most updated equipment and the knowledge of three wonderful doctors. This happened in 1998.

I am interested in all aspects of veterinary medicine but I do like to observe ultrasounds. My favourite thing about our clinic would have to be the people that I work with. We have all worked together for a long time and we respect each other and get along well. We have fun at our job and not a lot of people can say that. I also love to see new puppies and kittens coming in with their new owners and it is nice to build a relationship with new patients.

My first pet was a cat.

A fun fact about myself? It would be how much I love doing crafts and spending time with my granddaughters.

Dear Clients,

As a result of New Brunswick's plan to enter Level 2 of COVID-19 restrictions, we will proceed with the following protocol, effective immediately, until restrictions have been lifted.

We will be moving back to a curbside “Closed Waiting Room” policy, which means no clients will be permitted in the building, with exceptions. However, we will continue to offer FULL veterinary services.

If you have been contacted by Public Health or are showing symptoms of the virus, we ask that you call us to reschedule your appointment.

Procedure for surgeries and general appointments:

1. Call us at 622-2355 when you arrive in the parking lot. We will proceed in checking you in remotely.

2. When the Dr is ready to see your pet we will call your cell phone or wave at your vehicle and have you bring your pet to the main door. Please wear a mask when approaching the hospital to pass your pet to us.

3. A veterinarian will perform an examination or requested procedure inside the hospital while you wait in your vehicle, or a drop off appointment can be arranged.

4. Once the care of your animal is complete, the veterinarian will call you with their findings and devise a treatment plan.

5. Payment will be taken over the phone or in the parking lot via a portable debit machine. We are trying to limit cash use to a minimum.

6. Food and medications pick up will be curbside and payment can be accepted via e-transfer or credit card over the phone.

We are OPEN with the following hours:

- Monday and Thursday: 8:00am - 7:00pm
- Tuesday and Wednesday: 8:00am - 5:30pm
- Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
- Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED


Thank you for your patience and understanding.

- Your dedicated team at Waterview Animal Hospital
