Blog Post #1 – Meet Ashlyn

We have decided to revamp our “News” Page and get back into posting more often. You may see articles or Blog Posts from a few different staff members but Ashlyn is up first!

Hi, my name is Ashlyn and I am a registered veterinary technologist. I started working at Westlock vet back in May but have had three years of experience working in the industry.  I graduated from Lakeland College in 2020. When I was very young my family had cattle but we sold them for goats. Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to work with animals. In the field of veterinary medicine, my interests are small ruminants, pet weight loss, small animal dentistry and fear free for all animals. I currently live in a tiny house with my cat and dog. When I am not working, I enjoy camping in the summer and skiing in the winter. I coach five- to ten-year-old kids freestyle skiing and I volunteer my time as a Canadian ski patrol at Tawatinaw Valley Ski Hill. I am very proud that I have completed the highest level of fear free certification that is available and I strive to use the skills I have learned every day. The thing I love most about my job is communicating with owners about their animal’s health. I hope my blogs will give you more info on how to be the best owner you can be.
