Registered Animal Health Technologists

Our Registered Animal Health Technologists are college graduates who are trained paraprofessionals in the field of veterinary medicine.  They can be compared to a nurse, paramedic, medical laboratory technologist, anesthesiologist, radiology technologist, and medical receptionist.  Our RAHT’s are skilled in all of these areas which enhance patient care and the human-animal bond.

Bonnie, RAHT

Bonnie graduated from the two-year Animal Health Technology program at Fairview College in Alberta in 1981.  She joined the White Rock Veterinary Hospital shortly after.  In the past 30 years, she has contributed her knowledge, compassion, and commitment to your pets during their stay at our hospital.  Although she is familiar with all aspects of veterinary medicine, she has a keen interest in anesthesia monitoring in the operating room.  Her hobbies include golf and gardening.  She has three dogs and three cats at home.

 

Leanne, RAHT

Leanne’s love of animals led her to pursue a career in the veterinary field.  She graduated from Thompson Rivers University in 2002 with a Diploma in Animal Health Technology.  She joined the team at the White Rock Veterinary Hospital in 2005, after working at a small animal practice in the Fraser Valley for three years.  She enjoys educating our clients, especially about pet nutrition and preventative care.  When Leanne isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Kris and their daughter, camping, fishing, snowboarding, and quadding.  She shares her home with her cats TJ and Maestro, and her doberman, Gibson. Leanne is currently on maternity leave after having her second child.

 

Amanda, RAHT

Amanda has always had a special place in her heart for all kinds of animals, even growing up in a house without any. Her parents would always find her down the block at the neighbours house playing with their cats or dogs. She graduated from Red River College in Winnipeg with her Animal Health Technology Diploma in June 2012. Not long after graduating, Amanda and her fiance moved to BC with their Kelpi cross, Zoey. Amanda joined the White Rock Veterinary Hospital in February 2013. Shortly after, Amanda’s animal family grew with the addition of Tesla, a Cairn Terrier/Havanese cross. Amanda enjoys hiking and exploring beautiful BC with her family, yoga and surfing.
