Lead Registered Veterinary Technician
Born and raised in the Niagara region, Lisa has always loved animals. She knew, without a doubt, at a very young age that she wanted to help animals as a career someday. Becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician was the logical choice for her!
Lisa’s journey began with a co-op placement while she was attending high school. From there, she went on to attend a two-year veterinary technician program at Northern College. After graduation, Lisa spent the bulk of her 15+ years in the industry working in surgical referral. She joined the Waterdown Animal Hospital team in October of 2021 as a Lead Technician.
Maria has always had a deep admiration for caring for animals. At the age of 10, she found a wild rabbit that had been struck by a car. While her attempts to nurse the injured hare back to health were sadly not successful, the experience inspired Maria to pursue a career in veterinary medicine with the goal of learning and gaining a better understanding of how to help animals in need.
Maria’s journey has been a long and interesting one that includes everything from working with critically ill patients at UWC, to assisting with beluga whales at Marineland, to milking Holstein cows at Roy-a-Lea Farms in Binbrook, where she still helps out a few evenings a week. Through these experiences, Maria discovered that she enjoyed working with small companion animals the most, which led her to Waterdown Animal Hospital.

An avid animal lover, there are several aspects that Korey enjoys about her job. She relishes being able to chat with pet owners about their fur babies. She enjoys watching those fur babies grow into healthy adult animals. Lastly, she finds joy in watching different procedures and surgeries being performed on clients.
When Kendra was a small child, she distinctly remembers accompanying her family pets to the vet clinic for their routine care. Even at that young of an age, an indelible impression was made and a fascination for how medicine works was born. It came as no surprise, then, that Kendra would eventually grow up to work in the veterinary field.
Kendra joined the Waterdown Animal Hospital team in June of 2020 as a Veterinary Assistant. During this time, she was also attending Sheridan working toward her degree. Upon graduation, Kendra was promoted to the role of Veterinary Technician. Professionally, she has a particular interest in surgery. And, of course, she can’t pass up the chance to snuggle a puppy or kitten!
Outside of work, Kendra has six pets of her own, including three dogs (two labs and a Frenchie), and three cats.
