Client Care Specialist

How long have you worked at the hospital? October 2017.

What’s your favourite part of your position/role? Meeting the clients!

Why did you pursue the veterinary field as a career/job? My original field was accounting. Retirement was somewhat boring, so I decided to go back to work and this was a great opportunity.

What is your favourite animal movie and why? All Dogs Go to Heaven (for the dogs) and Oliver and Company (for the cats).

What pets do you have and what kind are they? Charley the Rottweiler mix and Yzma the cat.

Share an interesting story or something personal that’s happened to you during your time at the clinic. We had an emergency c-section late one night, and I got to go “behind the scenes” and help out. It was exhilarating to watch such a tiny little kitten take their first breaths and then hear them squeaking away!


Joanne Testimonials

Very friendly staff, my dog Bailey hasn't been to the vet in 8+ years and they made sure he was very comfortable in their hands, and very easy to make an appointment quickly. I have been recommended by many people (including my coworkers).
Taylor Hamling, CAH Client
Staff and doctors are so nice. We had an emergency this morning and they immediately helped us, without being a patient or knowing us. They did everything possible to save our pet and unfortunately we had to euthanize him after hours. It was a terrible moment and everyone there was so nice with us, we really appreciated it and in those moments thank you is not enough. We will for sure go back with our pets from now on. Me and my girls wanted to let you know how grateful we are for the kindness received from you and the professional care from Dr. Briggs. Thank you!
