Erika, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician

Erika grew up wanting to care for animals and credits her family veterinarian for feeding her interest by showing her all sorts of things under the microscope at each appointment and taking the time to explain every aspect of her pet’s exam.  Erika graduated from the veterinary technician program at Algonquin College in 2006 and joined the Parkdale Animal Hospital team in June of 2020.  Prior to arriving here, she had the pleasure of working with exotics in Ottawa and a large 24-hour hospital in Hamilton.  Erika has a passion for animal dental care and trying to utilize fear-free practices to make each patient visit more enjoyable.  Outside of work, her 3 children keep her busy but when time permits, she likes to bake, knit and loves music.  Erika practices flute, violin, and piano.  She also sneaks in as many cuddles as she can with her senior cat Amy!
