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 living on ‘the island’, Malia and her husband moved back to her home town. 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.
