Client Care Specialist & Veterinary Assistant

Sam joined the Parkdale team in June 2021. She has previous experiences in a dog daycare setting as well as a kennel assistant. These roles have allowed her to work her way up to her current position as Veterinary Assistant, where she enjoys assisting in surgery. You will also hear her lovely voice when greeting clients and patients upon check-in.

Sam’s ultimate passion lies with dog training – especially focusing on behavioural issues; which is why she is currently in school to become a certified dog trainer in obedience & behaviour (as well as scent and agility training). She will become Parkdale’s first certified dog trainer for obedience and behaviour!

When she isn’t studying or working, you can either find her cuddled up to her 3 fur babies, Arizona, Charlie and Lucifer or taking them hiking, swimming, and working on training. Sam also enjoys snowmobiling, kayaking, dirt biking and motorcycling with her husband.
