Eileen is new to Kelowna and joined our hospital as the Managing Veterinarian in August 2018. She completed a BSc in Agriculture at the University of Pretoria (South Africa) in 2003 and followed this with an Honours in Wildlife Management in 2004. Eileen then spent three interesting years working in the United Arab Emirates as an ecologist, after which she went back to South Africa and completed a veterinary degree at the University of Pretoria, graduating in 2014. Since graduating she has spent a number of years working in emergency medicine and has a particular interest in internal medicine and ultrasonography. Eileen shares her life with husband, Roger, and three little dachshunds, Aero, Roanie and Cinnamon. Her spare time is taken up learning how to ski and discovering all that the mountain bike paths in the area have to offer.
