Christie lives in Eastern Passage with her Labrador Retriever, Deidrich, and her three cats Marley, Nepeta and Todd. She started volunteering at Eastern Passage Village Veterinary Hospital 11 years ago, and then she was hired on as a kennel assistant. She has always loved working with animals, and giving them the care that they need and deserve. After having the opportunity to work in a veterinary hospital at a young age, she knew that this was the career for her. She decided to go to school to become a Registered Veterinary Technician, and graduated from the Dalhousie Agricultural College in 2017 with her diploma in veterinary technology. She has a special interest in clinical pathology and cytology. Outside of work, Christie enjoys scouting, camping, canoeing and hiking. She also has a keen interest in working with service animals.
