My journey to becoming an RVT was a longer one than most. I always had a huge interest in medical sciences as a kid but I could never decide what I wanted to do with it. I didn’t grow up with a lot of pets so I never knew veterinary technicians even existed! The summer after finishing my biology degree (where I learned all about different animals and their needs), I applied to volunteer at a veterinary clinic. There, I learned all about the RVT profession and realized I had found my calling. I then began my education towards becoming an RVT. Being an RVT has been incredibly rewarding and I am now passionate about teaching others about what a veterinary technician’s responsibility is to the animals and their caregivers. I joined the ODVS team in 2018 and I am excited to be able to continue my skills here to help compliment my teaching at Georgian College.
My husband and I are owned by our four oddball cats Pekoe, Moe, Bean and Storm as well as our newest family member, a Husky cross named Addy.

Megan completed her Veterinary Technician diploma in 2011 at Georgian College, and quickly achieved the registered status shortly after. After working in a few different clinics in focusing on different areas of veterinary medicine Megan is now complimenting our ODVS team with her skills and shaping future veterinary technicians by teaching part time at Georgian College. She has a special interest in feline medicine and dentistry and would be very happy to talk your ear off about both subjects if you let her.
