Practice Manager

Melissa has been around animals her entire life, growing up with large and giant breed dogs, pocket pets, birds, and all types of different aquatic life. As a child Melissa rescued different strays and wildlife in need, nursing them back to health, helping to find them homes or safely releasing them back into the wild.

Throughout her childhood Melissa dreamed of becoming a Veterinarian, but life took her down the path of human healthcare instead. After working tirelessly ensuring over 40 hospitals in the GTHA remained staffed during the pandemic, Melissa needed a change.

Having previous experience in a general practice animal hospital, Melissa decided it was time to come back to the fur baby side of healthcare. Melissa worked at an emergency veterinary hospital, facilitating urgent and critical care for many beloved pets and their families, before making the decision to come back to general practice.

In her spare time Melissa loves being with family and her own rescue dogs, a Husky mix (Klover) and Kentucky Bloodhound (Bo). Melissa also has a love for photography, horseback riding and classic cars. If you see a mean green 67′ Chevelle out cruising, chances are it is her.

As practice manager Melissa’s goal is to ensure our patients receive the highest quality medical care, and that our clients feel supported. Melissa is an asset to our team and looks forward to making our clinic an integral part of the Waterdown community.



Veterinary Technician

Megan became a veterinary technician because she wanted to make a difference in peoples’ lives, and most importantly, help their furry members get on the road of recovery no matter how difficult the challenge may be. She loves being a part of a team that makes a positive impact on local families and ensures that they always feel cared for.

Megan joined the Waterdown Animal Hospital team in August of 2023. She had been looking for her “unicorn” clinic where she could put down some roots, enhance her skills, and continue to grow as a technician – and she found it here! Professionally, Megan enjoys challenges that do not have a simple answer. There’s something about pulling together as a team and working hard collectively to achieve a goal.

Outside of work, Megan has two dogs of her own: a lovable German shepherd/Doberman mix named Duke who is a total couch potato, and an Australian shepherd who does not believe in nap time and loves to play in the water.



Veterinary Assistant

As a child, Matt looked up to environmental advocates, especially those who focused their efforts on helping the animals of the world. Seeing their good work inspired Matt to follow in their footsteps and pursue a career in the veterinary industry. As a veterinary assistant, he loves being able to help animals and educate owners on the best ways to care for their furry family members.

Prior to joining Waterdown Animal Hospital, Matt spent some time in other areas of animal care before making his way to vet clinics. Professionally, he has a special interest in nutrition, as he believes it’s one of the best ways to keep animals healthy and prevent future medical issues.

When he’s not busy working, you will likely find Matt dabbling in his other hobbies, which include 3D printing and modeling.
