After graduating from the Veterinary Assistant program at Algonquin college in 2018, Kayla eventually moved back to her home town of Renfrew. In August of 2021 she switched clinics and joined RAH where she gets to continue to provide care to our patients and share her knowledge with our clients. Before starting here Kayla had two pets. Her grump of a cat, Gilbert and her big goofball of a dog, Frank (see photo). Working in this area we have had many strays come in need of a home and if it’s a male brown tabby, she's your girl to take them home with her. This is how she ended up with Toby and Sparkplug. If it’s not work or spending time with her boys, you’ll find her at the race track.
