Malia grew up in Kelowna and has a deep affection for all living things. She knew from a very young age that she wanted to work with animals. Whilst living in Victoria Malia completed a distance education programmed through Thompson Rivers University and became a Registered Veterinary Technologist.
After 5 years of living on ‘the island’, Malia and her husband moved back to her hometown. She has two domestic long-haired cats, Meeko and Squirt, and when not at work, she enjoys being active and enjoying the hot Okanagan summers.
