Rachel rescued 8 stray dogs in Taiwan and brought 2 dogs with her back to Kelowna. This experience encouraged her to start a career as a Registered Veterinary Technician, and in 2008 she graduated from Thompson Rivers University.
Her experience includes work at small animal clinics and Canada West Specialists and Critical Care Hospital in Vancouver. Rachel has a special interest in canine behaviour and can often be found trying to coax nervous patients out of their shells.
In her spare time she is always out with her young family swimming, hiking, camping and spending time with her dogs Sadie and Bear.
