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. 

Clinically, Lisa still has an affinity for surgery. She also appreciates the relationships she’s built with clients and earning the trust of patients. There’s simply nothing like seeing a formerly injured and scared pet come running up to give you a big slobbery kiss because they just feel so much better.

At home, Lisa still resides in the Niagara region with her husband, their two boys, and their family dog, Diesel – a crazy boxer who’s good at sneaking in snuggles at night, and loves playing soccer and tag with the kids.

When she’s not at work, you can usually find Lisa doing something outdoors. Her favorite pastimes include camping and going on hikes with her family. She recently hiked more than 30km of the Bruce Trail.



Veterinary Assistant

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.

Professionally, Maria enjoys the process of prepping for surgery, as it requires a lot of focus and precision. She also likes being able to interact with the clients on a more personal level. After all, they always know the secret tips and tricks to help us with their pets during appointments!

Outside of work, Maria is ‘Mom’ to a lovable Hungarian Vizsla named Luna. A high-energy breed, Luna loves getting attention and treats. Give her both, and you’ll unlock the way to her heart forever. She also has two axolotls, Bubba and Caspian. They are quite calm, until it gets dark outside. That’s when they can be seen swimming around their tank. Bubba can even glow in the dark!

Maria recently graduated from Brock University with a Bachelors in Biological Sciences. In her spare time, she really enjoys ecology and has recently picked up interests in foraging and insect collection. She also likes playing hockey and volleyball.



Customer Service Representative

As a customer service representative at Waterdown Animal Hospital, Korey knows that she is the first friendly face that clients see when they walk into the door. That’s why she makes it her mission to ensure that every animal and human who comes into the clinic has a wonderful experience!

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.



Veterinary Technician

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.
